- The makers have borrowed the main idea and changed the story
- The film is produced by Dinesh Vijan
- Kriti Sanon's upcoming projects are Arjun Patiala, Panipat and Housefull
Kriti Sanon is likely to team up with her Luka Chuppi director Laxman Utekar and producer Dinesh Vijan for a film on surrogacy. Sources close to the development said the film, titled Mamma Mia, is currently in the writing stage. "The film is in the process of writing. There is a Marathi film called Mala Aai Vhhaychy, which is on surrogacy and Maddock Films has official rights of it. But we have just taken the core idea of it and have changed the entire story," the source told PTI.
"There are no similarities between the two stories, the backdrop, the characters are different, just the idea of surrogacy mother we have taken. The Marathi film was made years ago. Back then, the emotions were different and today the taste of audience is changing. As makers, we have to fulfil their expectations," the sources added.
Kriti, who is basking in the success of two back-to-back hit filmsBareilly Ki Barfi and Luka Chuppi, has liked the idea and is on board the project, they said. The film is expected to go on floors in November this year after the script is complete.
Surrogacy is a subject which has been previously dealt in films such as Sushmita Sen's Filhaal, Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, starring Salman Khan and others.
Filmmaker Karan Johar's upcoming home production Good News, featuring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor, also reportedly deals with surrogacy.
Kriti will be seen next in Arjun Patiala with Diljit Dosanjh, multi-starrer comedy film Housefull 4 and Ashutosh Gowarikar's Panipat.
