EXCLUSIVE: Kriti Sanon on her difficult delivery scene in Mimi: I am scared to have a baby after doing this part
Ever since the trailer of Mimi released, there has been a deluge of positive feedback from the audience. Fans of Kriti Sanon are extremely happy for her. Kriti, in an exclusive interview, shares with Bollywood Bubble the effort she had put in for the delivery scene and why she is scared to deliver in real life.
She says, “The second half of the film is difficult for me. Specially when Mimi becomes a mother. Because this was a scene which 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.”
She also shares that the delivery scene in the film is perhaps the first of its kind in Hindi films, “Mostly in Hindi films we sometime 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.”

Speaking about the preparatory work for the scene, Kriti says, “Before the scene I was lying upside down so that my face has a gush of blood and looks red. As an actor I sometime do trial and error. I don’t have any particular method. So while doing that process Laxman Sir was filming me. I still have the video with me. And I would like to share when I started doing the scene I was feeling from inside that I am actually delivering.”
Kriti also feel after doing this scene, she is quite scared about it in real life. She says, “I have seen a lot of real delivery videos on You Tube 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.”
Mimi reunites Kriti Sanon, Pankaj Tripathi, director Laxman Utekar and producer Dinesh Vijan after their hit romantic-comedy Luka Chuppi. It is also the latest collaboration between Dinesh Vijan and Kriti Sanon after films like Raabta, Luka Chuppi and Arjun Patiala. Fans also remember her striking camaraderie with Pankaj Tripathi as father-daughter in Bareilly Ki Barfi.
Mimi is one of the most anticipated films of the year and will be streaming from 30th July 2021 onwards on Jio Cinema and Netflix.
