Pankaj Tripathi is a busy man.
After announcing his new film with Janhvi Kapoor, the actor unveils yet another with Kriti Sanon.
Mimi will be directed by Kriti's Luka Chuppi director, Laxman Utekar.
Backed by Dinesh Vijan, the project is based on 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.
'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 struck a chord with him.
"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.
