Actors Kriti Sanon and Pankaj Tripathi are set to star in "Luka Chuppi" director Laxman Utekar's next, "Mimi".
Backed by Dinesh Vijan, the project is based around the Marathi film "Mala Aai Vhaaychya" which bagged the National Award for Best Feature Film in Marathi in 2011 and will be reportedly based on surrogacy.
Kriti Sanon and Pankaj Tripathi collaborated for the first time for Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's Bareilly Ki Barfi.
"There's a thrill in telling poignant stories and then there's a thrill in telling ones that are based on true events. 'Mimi' is one such tale," Vijan said in a statement.
The producer said the story of the film struck a chord with him.
Kriti, who was last seen in Arjun Patiala, took to social media to make the big announcement.Sharing the first poster Kriti wrote, "Life is a journey filled with unexpected miracles. Get ready for a journey like never before, #Mimi !! This one’s gonna be so special"
"It explores a beautiful relationship between a woman who never wanted to be a mother and one who can't wait to be one. What's unexpected about the story is the humorous vein that runs through it and that's what makes 'Mimi' exciting," he added.
"Mimi" will be produced by Maddock films in association with Jio Studios and hit screen in 2020.
