'It is not a preachy film on surrogacy'
Mumbai: Actor Kriti Sanon said her forthcoming film Mimi won't be a documentary-style take on surrogacy and deals with the subject in an entertaining, fun manner.
Kriti has reunited with her Luka Chuppi director Laxman Utekar and co-star Pankaj Tripathi for Mimi.
"It's not preachy or serious. It's not like you are going to watch a film on surrogacy and it's going to be a documentary film. It's a very entertaining film, filled with humour, and a lot of ups and downs. There's a beautiful graph of the woman I am playing, Mimi, where she wants to be an actor," Kriti said.
"She is a dancer and she is ambitious and wants to be an actor and how she ends up becoming a surrogate mother and what all happens, how her life changes and with that she changes. It's a beautiful script."
The actor said she was bowled over by the script of the film, penned by Rohan Shankar, who had also written Luka Chuppi.
"It's a very special role for me because surrogacy is a topic that hasn't been explored so much here. The way Laxman sir makes the film and the way Rohan has written it, they have a knack of taking a subject and making it entertaining."
Kriti said the success of Luka Chuppi gave her the confidence to take risks and it made her sign the film.
She will also be seen with Akshay Kumar in Farhad Samji's next, Bachchan Pandey.
The actor, who recently started with Akshay in Housefull 4, said she's excited to work with him again.
