Kriti Sanon has always impressed fans and now, she is set to do it once again with her next, Mimi.
The actress will be putting on 15 kilos and will weigh up to 70 kgs for her role in the Laxman Utekar-directed film Mimi.
The film is backed by Dinesh Vijan. Mimi is based on Samruddhi Porey-directed Marathi feature Mala Aai Vhaaychya, which won the National Award for the best feature film in Marathi (2011).
She has now started gaining weight for Mimi. Kriti posted a picture of her morning breakfast, which included halwa, puri and desi chana, saying that the process of weight gain has started.
Earlier, in an interview with a news agency, Kriti had said Mimi was close to her heart and she wanted to give her best for the role, including weight gain.
Talking about it she said,
“For me, putting on so many kilos is actually a challenge as it’s very new for my body. I have to in a way fight my metabolism and increase my calorie intake to gain that much weight in a short time.
But I’m excited to see the transformation. It’s a role very close to my heart and I want to give it everything I can, even if that means not taking up any other work in the process,” the actor had said in a statement.
Mimi also features actors Sai Tamhankar and Pankaj Tripathi in key roles. It is slated to release in July 2020.
Apart from Mimi, Kriti will also appear in Farhad Samji’s Bachchan Pandey featuring her Housefull 4 co-star Akshay Kumar. The film is reported to be the remake of the Tamil film Veeram that released in 2014, starring Ajith Kumar and Tamannaah.
