Kriti Sanon will be essaying the role of a surrogate mother in her next release, Mimi. The film is produced by Dinesh Vijan who has worked with the actress in her previous ventures like Raabta and Luka Chuppi. Pankaj Tripathi, Saie Tamhankar, Manoj Pahwa, and Supriya Pathak are also a part of the film’s cast. Kriti has been excited for the public to see her new work and the makers were planning to release the movie in theatres last year but it seems that we’ll be seeing it soon on an OTT platform.
Throwing light upon the same, according to sources, Dinesh Vijan has secured a great deal with one of the streaming giants for Kriti’s next, Mimi, along with a few of his other projects that have been in line. The team wanted to release these films on the big screens and even tried to do the same with the Rajkummar Rao and Janhavi Kapoor starrer- Roohi.
However, the current COVID situation makes it difficult to even think of reopening the theatres. With the possibility of a third wave, it is safe to say that the theatres won’t be reopening for at least the next three months. After considering all the possible alternatives, Dinesh has finally decided to go ahead with releasing ‘Mimi’ online. He has supposedly earned a good profit and will be making the announcement soon. Apart from the Kriti Sanon starter, there have been talks that Vijan is considering to go ahead with an OTT release of Sunny Kaushal’s Shiddat.
