The makers of Kriti Sanon and Pankaj Tripathi’s Mimi, who have been sharing regular updates about the film, took to Twitter to announce that they are releasing the film 4 days before its premiere. Though Mimi was slated to release on Netflix and Jio Cinemas on July 30, the makers decided to prepone the date as a gift to producer Dinesh Vijan and lead actress Kriti Sanon, who celebrate their birthdays on July 26 and July 27, respectively.
The audience was in for a big surprise as the makers of Mimi released the film 4 days earlier than its premiere date on July 30. In a video note, Pankaj Tripathi, who plays a pivotal role in the film, revealed the reason behind the preponement. Directed by Laxman Utekar, the Mirzapur actor also urged everyone to watch the film with their entire family.
Sharing the happy news on their Twitter handle, Netflix wrote, “Aagayi hai Mimi expected delivery time se pehle. Guess you didn’t expect that? Neither did we. MIMI IS NOW STREAMING! #MimiOnNetflix (sic).”
Mimi follows the story of a small-town girl who has big dreams of becoming an actress. Due to an unexpected twist, she decides to be a surrogate mother, which changes her life completely. Directed by Laxman Utekar, Mimi is inspired by the 2010 Marathi movie Mala Aai Vhhaychy. Besides Kriti, Mimi’s cast also features Pankaj Tripathi, Sai Tamhankar, Supriya Tripathi and Manoj Pahwa.
