Mili Movie Story

Boney Kapoor purchased the Hindi adaptation rights to the Malayalam film Helen (2019) in August 2020. A year later, the remake’s name—Mili—was revealed. The first film’s director, Mathukutty Xavier, also helmed the sequel. He remembered turning down a Hindi version of Helen in 2021, but when Kapoor approached him about casting his daughter Janhvi in a prospective remake, he consented. The remake’s creative director was Noble Babu Thomas, who had a major role in Helen. Ritesh Shah was employed as the scriptwriter to modify the screenplay for Hindi-speaking audiences. The original makeup artist, Ranjith Ambady, was kept on in the same capacity.

Mili Naudiyal, the titular character, is portrayed by Janhvi.

When playing Mili’s lover, Sunny Kaushal was sure not to copy Noble Babu Thomas, who played a part in the original, but rather to provide his take. Boney was originally going to play Jhanvi’s father. Still, Mathukutty Xavier opted against it since he thought it would be “gimmicky” to have one’s actual father also play their fictional father. Manoj Pahwa was given the part.

The principal shooting was scheduled to start in June 2021, but it was postponed because of India’s COVID-19 pandemic’s second wave. It finally started on August 5, 2021, in Mumbai. She was trapped in a freezer during the scenes that showed this. The sequences showing the mall where Mili works were shot in Dehradun since malls in Mumbai were shut down then, whereas these and other inside scenes were shot in Mumbai. To play her part, Janhvi had “intensive preparation,” She said that the shooting procedure impacted her “both physically and psychologically.” On November 26, 2021, production came to an end.
