In the film, Pankaj Tripathi’s character persuades Kriti Sanon ( Mimi )to be a surrogate mother for an American couple. She agrees after finding out that she will not be involved in conceiving the baby and that she will paid ₹20 lakh for carrying it.
Mimi is concerned about how she will explain the baby bump to her parents, but Sai Tamhankar’s character tells her that she can stay with her. Sai’s character introduces Kriti’s character as ‘Chand’ and Pankaj’s character as her husband Naseeruddin, leading to much hilarious situations.
However, Mimi’s world turns upside down when she is told that the American couple no longer wants the child and she is asked to get an abortion. She returns home and while being interrogated by her parents about the father of her child, panics and points at Pankaj’s character. The film touches upon the challenges of surrogacy and how society looks at it.
The movie showcases Kriti Sanon’s journey from being an ambitious dancer in a small town to discovering about surrogacy and embracing motherhood whole-heartedly. Apart from Kriti, it is Pankaj Tripathi who steals the show. Actor Pankaj Tripathi, who has lifted several films with his mere presence, continues to pick roles that are out-of-the-box. The trailer showcases the roller-coaster ride of events. There is one Namaz scene in the trailer .
In the said scene, Tripathi, who is pretending to be a Muslim man to keep Mimi (played by Kriti) company as she becomes a surrogate mother, is asked as to how many times he offers namaz during a day. To which, he instantly replies, “10 martaba.” When he is told that namaz is to be offered only five times a day, pat comes a reply that he answered for two days, and not one.
Simply put, the trailer is making it hard for us to wait for the film’s release.Mimi will release on Netflix on July 30.

Stay tuned! #MimiTrailer13July (sic).”
Mimi tells an unconventional story about a surrogate mother. Kriti Sanon said, “I am very excited. It’s based on the subject of surrogacy but actually it’s the story of this young girl who wants to be an actor. She’s a dancer in Mandawa and she ends up being a surrogate for a couple.
Then, the things that follow change her life and also change her as a person.” She added: “It’s a lot on me. It’s around this character Mimi. It is very entertaining, a beautiful script. One of the most beautiful scripts I have read. You will have a lot of humour and situational humour. At the same time, there are a lot of characters you will take back home.”
Kriti Sanon reunites with Laxman Utekar for Mimi – the filmmaker previously directed her in Luka Chhupi, co-starring Kartik Aaryan.

It’s a very entertaining film, filled with humour, and a lot of ups and downs. There’s a beautiful graph of the woman I am playing, Mimi, where she wants to be an actress.” original film also won a National Award for Best Feature Film in Marathi in the year 2011.
