Kriti Sanon opens up about her 15-kilogram weight gain for Mimi, and it’s a gruelling process. In the video, we can watch her change from ‘Mimi to Mummy,’ where the ruling actress puts on so much weight without reluctance, even at this stage in her career.

Kriti shared a video on her social media where she said, “Mimi’s shoot was kind of divided into two parts, the first schedule- I was my normal self, the second half, which was post three four months of pregnancy where I had to obviously gain the weight.”

She can be seen eating everything that came in front of her to put on so much weight withing 2 months. She adds about her director, “Laxman sir said Mimi aapko 15 kilo weight badhana hai.. so I was like wow this is called prep.”

She captioned the video, “Laxman sir told me.. “Mimi, i wanna see your face and believe that you are pregnant”

“Being blessed with a good metabolism and normally eating burgers and pizzas in life, gaining 15kgs was a challenge.. I never thought i could do it, and there was a point when I didn’t wanna see food.. but when i saw how it translated on screen, it was all worth it!”


“After 7 days, I didn’t want to see food, I was eating burger, KFC, chocolate shake, chips and fried stuff, and everything you are asked not to have”, added the leading lady.

Even the makers of the film were surprised at how perfectly Kriti looked the part after all her hard work. Kriti said, “Honestly, today when I see the difference on screen, I am so glad that we did this.”

Sanon will play a surrogate mother in Mimi, and she is expected to wow everyone with her breakout performance, since the film allowed her to “explore diverse emotions” within herself as an actor while she is responsible for the entire production.

Apart from Mimi, Kriti Sanon will also be seen in Prabhas’ Adipurush, Varun Dhawan’s Bhediya, Akshay Kumar’s Bachchan Pandey, Tiger Shroff’s Ganapath and Hum Do Hamaare Do in the coming future with another unannounced project.
