Sanon's look was released today, but the first movie poster was unveiled two years ago. Sanon had shared the official poster on social media in August 2019, and wrote, "Life is a journey filled with unexpected miracles. Get ready for a journey like never before, #Mimi!! This one's gonna be soooo special." The image gave the idea that the film is about surrogacy.

Movie is based on Marathi film, 'Mala Aai Vhhaychy!'
Sanon will play a surrogate mother in Mimi. It's based on the 2011 Marathi film, Mala Ali Vhhaychy!, which won the National Award for Best Feature Film in the year. It revolves around a woman who comes to India looking for a surrogate mother. After she finds one, the child's deformity disappoints her. Whether she accepts the baby or not is the movie's plot.
Here's what Vijan had said about the storyline of 'Mimi'
"It explores a beautiful relationship between a woman who never wanted to be a mother and one who can't wait to be one. What's unexpected about the story is the humorous vein that runs through it. That's what makes Mimi exciting," Vijan told India Today.
'Mimi' to have a digital premiere on July 30?
The makers have not revealed release date yet, however, speculations are rife that Mimi will have a digital release on July 30, according to Bollywood Life. It further reported that it'll be Sanon's "first women-centric film." Apart from Mimi, Sanon has Adipurush, Ganapath and Bachchan Pandey in pipeline. Plus, she might appear in the Hindi remake of Kill Bill and also, a Rajkummar Rao-movie.
