Directed by Luka Chuppi fame Laxman Utekar, Kriti considers the project a huge responsibility.
"I am quite nervous. But nervousness is what is so exciting. The fact that I haven't done something like this before, the fact that it's so away from me and it's got emotions I have never experienced, is what is challenging.
"But at this point of time, I want to do something different, take a risk and push the envelope. I'm glad that Mimi is going to be my first female-centric film,"she said.
According to Kriti, Mimi has its heart in the right place.
"It makes you smile, laugh, weep, feel good, everything," she added. "Laxman sir has a knack of understanding emotions and presenting it in an entertaining manner with a lot of situational humour and characters that you take back home."
Mimi also features actor Pankaj Tripathi.
