Actor Kriti Sanon went the extra mile for her upcoming film Mimi. The Laxman Utekar directorial features the actor as a surrogate mother, who is left in a fix after the adoptive family refuses to take the baby. To play the part, Kriti had to gain 15 kilos, and she indulged in eating all kinds of food ‘that you are not allowed to eat’. The actor added that she did not want to see food after seven days of her new diet.
In a video shared by the makers, Kriti talks about her journey of going from ‘Mimi to Mummy’. The actor starts by sharing how the film’s schedule was divided into two parts — first, where she is her normal self, and the second part, where she had to look pregnant. After completing her first schedule, the 30-year-old actor tells the team that she will be back in a different avatar, while gesturing a weight gain.
Director Laxman Utekar then says that he suggested Kriti Sanon to put on weight as only then ‘the audience will connect to Mimi’. Utekar said he was surprised to see what she did. “When we saw the moti Mimi with a seven-month belly, she looked pregnant in real,” he added.
