Kriti Sanon revealed that playing the role of a surrogate mother in her upcoming film Mimi was a journey altogether for her, as an actor. Speaking on the sidelines of a promotional event in Mumbai, Kriti Sanon in an interview to news agency IANS, said, "I had a really nice experience shooting for the film. In fact, I feel this is one of the most beautiful scripts I have read. Sometimes, it happens that certain scenes of a film look really good on paper but you are not able to execute them when you are shooting and vice versa. But in this film that wasn't the case."
Last year, Kriti revealed the first look of the film on her Instagram profile. The poster of the film, which is based on surrogacy, shows two hands, one holding a newborn baby and the other extended forward to hold the child. Sharing the first look of Mimi, Kriti Sanon captioned it: "Life is a journey filled with unexpected miracles. Get ready for a journey like never before, #Mimi! This one's gonna be so special."

The 29-year-old actress recently wrapped up the shooting of her upcoming film. Speaking of her equation with the film's director Laxman Utekar, she told IANS, "If we shot this film as effectively as it looked on paper, credit goes to the whole team and especially Laxman Utekar. This is my second film with him. We haven't explored the topic of surrogacy in our films. I like the fact that Laxman Utekar has the ability to make an entertaining and humorous film out of a serious topic. I feel it is really important to do that because you are not making a documentary."
A few days ago, Kriti shared a group picture on her Instagram profile, featuring the cast and crew of Mimi. She captioned it, "And it's a wrap. Mimi has been such an experience. The most satisfying schedule ever with a super passionate and hardworking cast and crew." Take a look:
