Actress Kriti Sanon will be seen in the role of a pregnant woman in her upcoming film, Mimi. Talking about her character, the actress said that she is unsure about delivering a child in real life. Kriti revealed that the delivery scene was the toughest scene for her to perform in the film.
Kriti Sanon, in an interview with Bollywood Bubble, said, “I have seen a lot of real delivery videos on YouTube and all I can say is I am petrified to deliver a child in real life. I am not sure if I want to deliver or not in real life… The second half of the film is difficult for me. Especially when Mimi becomes a mother. Because this was a scene that I couldn’t relate to – a delivery means a lot of mental change and not just physical change. Gaining 15 kilos was definitely tough but the delivery scene in the film was the toughest. And I was very nervous about it.”
Explaining the delivery scene in the movie, she said, “Mostly in Hindi films we sometimes put comic relief in it and sometimes it is done in a subtle way. But our director Laxman Utekar wanted to film this in a realistic manner. He told me a man should experience the pain while seeing you. They should feel what a woman goes through while delivering and look at his wife and feel proud. That was the brief he shared.”
The movie, Mimi, focuses on the life of a girl played by Kriti Sanon who decides to be a surrogate mother for an American couple. Later, when the couple tells her to abort the child, she refuses and decides to give birth to the child on her own. Pankaj Tripathi plays a crucial role in the film.
Mimi is a comedy-drama directed by Laxman Utekar and will be released on 30th July.
