While surrogacy is a sensitive topic to deal with, Laxman Utekar knows how to spin it into a quirky way that appears both funny and satirically informative. The trailer of Kriti Sanon and Pankaj Tripathi starrer was released by the makers today and it is hilarious. Their pairing is odd and it is everything you need in Utrekar's rustic setting.
The actress plays a young surrogate mother in the film. By the looks of it, Kriti's character is a small town girl who's lured to be a surrogate mother for a foreign couple. While she accepts the proposal when she's offered a handsome sum of money, things take a turn when the couple decides they don't want their child anymore and now Mimi is in a fix. what follows is chaos which leaves no one sheltered.
Sharing the teaser, Kriti wrote on Instagram. "#Mimi expected everything, except for this unexpected journey! Here is My Mimi for you! Watch the glimpse of her unexpected story with your family. #MimiTrailer out now. Link in bio. Releasing on 30th July on @officialjiocinema & @netflix_in. #NothingLikeWhatYoureExpecting (sic)."
