Mimi (Kriti Sanon) is a small-town girl from Rajasthan who gets offered Rs 20 lakh to act as a surrogate for an American couple. The middleman is Bhanu (Pankaj Tripathi) who, in his impeccable style, manages to convince both parties. The only hindrance being: how Mimi will hide her pregnant belly from her parents and society at large. The film touches upon the challenges of surrogacy and how society looks at it
For the uninitiated, Pandit Banaras Tiwari, Tripathi’s father, died away a few days ago at the age of 99. The actor, who was rejoicing over the success of his most recent movie, OMG 2, departed right away for his hometown of Gopalganj to perform his final rites.
In an exclusive interview, Tripathi discussed his victory and said, “The mood is quite mixed. My father’s death was a terrible loss for me personally. He used to be ecstatic as he watched my voyage. My development as an actor and a person was aided by his ideals, ethics, and principles. Even if he is not physically present, I can still sense his presence and his presence around me. He would have been overjoyed right now. Everything I have now is a result of his favor.
