Kriti Sanon in and as Mimi

Post-success glow of Kriti Sanon seems to be suiting her, as she has been named as one of the upcoming stars ready to step into the big leagues of the Hindi film industry. Her latest venture Mimi received appreciation from all sections of audiences, critics and masses alike, as she walked away with rave reviews for her performance. From ‘her career’s finest’ to ‘one that highlights her prowess as an actress’ – the appreciation for her role in Mimi was abundant. Thus, as she turned a year older on July 27, she now finds herself among the top female actresses in Bollywood.

Directed by Laxman Utekar, Mimi revolves around a young dancer, who decides to become a surrogate mother for an American couple. However, things quickly take a drastic turn when they decide not to have the baby anymore, throwing Mimi onto a quirky ride of emotions. The movie has turned out to be a milestone in the seven-year long career graph of the actress, much like Deepika Padukone in Piku and Alia Bhatt in Raazi. The way Kriti effortlessly slid through multiple evolutions from being a dancer, then a surrogate to a mother in the film, shows her nuanced acting, confidence and skills.


With Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone reigning strong for quite some time now, Kriti Sanon can be correctly called the dark horse taking the third spot, because of her exciting kitty of films, and long list of hits, from Heropanti, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Luka Chuppi, as well as with Mimi being a critical superhit.

The talented artiste currently has six big banner films in her bag, with leading names from the industry, like Hum Do Hamare Do with Rajkummar Rao, Bachchan Pandey with Akshay Kumar, the action film Ganpath with Tiger Shroff, Bhediya with Varun Dhawan, and the hugely expensive pan-Indian film Adipurush starring Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan.

It has also been heard that Kriti might have another big-ticket project in the pipeline, the announcement of which will soon be made.
