Kriti Sanon and Pankaj Tripathi’s surrogacy drama Mimi is live on Netflix and Jio Cinema, the film’s team announced during an Instagram interaction on Monday evening. The film was supposed to release on July 30. However, in honour of lead star Kriti’s birthday on July 27, the movie started streaming on OTT platforms from 6:30 pm on Monday.

Earlier, during an interaction with, director Laxman Utekar had stated that Mimi does not attempt to break any taboo as it is just a humorous and emotional tale of two mothers. “This film is an emotional journey of two mothers and Bhanu. We are not trying to break any taboo. It is a tale told very humorously. But it does explain surrogacy in a basic language,” the director told

Kriti Sanon plays a surrogate mother in Mimi. Talking about the prep for her role, Kriti said, “I divided the film into two parts – A happy schedule and a sad schedule. The first schedule was easier because the only thing I had to do was pick up the accent and mannerism but in the second schedule, I had to put on 15 kilos to look pregnant from the face. Not exercising at all, stuffing myself even when I was not hungry and eating all sorts of oily food made me nauseous. That was a bit of a journey.”

Mimi director Laxman Utekar on making 'small-town' centered films

"I come from a small town in Maharashtra. I am a son of a farmer. So, I think I can relate to what happens in a lower-middle-class family. I don’t know how a person living in Bandra or Juhu will react to a situation but I sure know how a person in Nasik will react. That is my observation and comfort. I would rather express or try to make people laugh through an emotion that I know of or can understand. That is how I look at the genre,” Utekar told

Kriti Sanon on her Mimi co-star Pankaj Tripathi

Kriti Sanon opened up on her bond with her Mimi co-star Pankaj Tripathi. “When I was working on Bareilly Ki Barfi, in my first scene with him, I was a little hesitant and scared because all of a sudden I was surrounded by him, Seema Pahwa ma’am and so many stalwarts. And this was a film that was away from my zone and was in this new world. But humari tuning baith gayi thi. Even in that film, we didn’t have many dialogues but even sharing a glance was enough for us and the audience to understand what are the characters talking about. So, it is then (in that film) when I found my comfort with him as an actor. I felt I could be free and perform without any pressure," she said.
