Mimi is an upcoming Hindi movie directed by Laxman Utekar and written by Rohan Shankar. It’s set to be released in India sometime in 2021 and according to the makers it’s an updated take on the classic Mushi Maki restaurant series. The plot revolves around a restaurant named after the protagonist of the series, Mimi, who works in it after her mother dies.
Mimi is supposed to be inspired by the popular Mushi restaurant chain of Japan but given the fact that it’s set in India, the story line and the storyline have been changed to make it more interesting for an Indian audience. Mimi will star Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Yash Raj, Priyadarshan Soman Nair, Anushka Shetty, Shazahn Padamsee, and Kavita Das. Mimi was first announced in the mid-90s but its release was delayed several times due to different reasons. Now it’s finally set for release and here are some movie details from the source.
Anushka Shetty is one of the biggest celebrities of Indian cinema at the moment. She has a number of hit films to her credit, including Baahubali, Kya Zindoor, Chennai Express, Zya Zindoor, Karan Johar, etc. Mimi is expected to be a big hit, as Shetty has established himself as one of the best actors and actresses of Bollywood drama genre. Mimi is scheduled to release on September/ October 2021. There’s no word yet about the movie’s star cast, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Mimi is yet to receive a proper release date from anywhere. However, Pankaj Tripathi has assured that the film stars Priyadarshan Soman Nair and Madhubala. Mimi co-stars Aishwarya Rai and Sobia.
Mimi is one of the most happening and high profile in-flight movies of late. It’s been on display ever since Pankaj Tripathi wrote Mimi to exploit the popularity of Karan Johar’s Mimi, which was released in April this year. Mimi was a remake of Mika Mehendi’s movie Mika Mehendi, which was a box office hit last year. Mimi stars Aishwarya Rai and Sobia. Aishwarya Rai is already doing well in Bollywood’s film realm, after hitting the screens in a string of hit movies such as Raising Arizona and Humko Deewana Karate. Sobia has already done well in Rajneeti’s Dabanglapure and Apartment 3.
Aishwarya Rai is the name that has been linked with Hollywood’s silver screen in the recent past. She is seen along with Ranbir Kapoor in the popular comedy Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. Mimi is yet to be given a release date by any distributor, and will have to appear in various open casting auditions to finally get a role in a Hindi movie. Mimi’s leading star cast is Aishwarya Rai, who is also well known for her roles in Apartment 3 and Raising Arizona. It’s been speculated that Mimi may even try out for a cameo in one of Prabhas’s films to get an opportunity to work with an established star cast.
Mimi’s story revolves around a young girl named Mika, who lives with her aunt and younger cousin in a small rented room in a slum in Mumbai. Mika’s father is a failed writer, and her mother works as a maid. Mika’s aunt is in the business of cleaning and repairing old furniture and equipments, and she helps Mika with her plans to start an electronics store of her own. Mika’s best friend is Dinesh Vhanchan who happens to visit Mumbai on the eve of the elections in 2021. Mika starts attending the Vahnchan’s classes, where he begins to learn about computers, designing, and selling his new product – the ‘Dinesh Computer’.
Mimi looks to be tailor made for a biopic genre, which is most commonly associated with Marathi movies. However, it is interesting to note that this drama film also has strong scenes of English speaking Mika and a supporting role for a pregnant actress. It is expected that a drama film such as Mimi will make a good break for Aishwarya Rai, who is already getting the recognition she deserves from Hindi cinema. However, Aishwarya Rai does have the right mensch and has the talent to play Mimi.
