About Mili Movie:

Mili is a remake of his own 2019 Malayalam-language film Helen.

Principal photography took place from August to November 2021 in Mumbai and Dehradun. Filming wrapped on 26 November 2021.

In August 2020, Boney Kapoor bought the rights to remake the Malayalam film Helen (2019) in Hindi. The title of the remake, Mili, was announced a year later.

The scenes depicting Mili stuck in a freezer were shot in an actual freezer.

Janhvi Kapoor underwent “intense preparation” to portray her character, and said the filming process affected her both “physically and mentally”.

All tracks are written by Javed Akhtar.

Mili was released theatrically on 4 November 2022 by Zee Studios. The film received mixed reviews from critics and failed at the box office, though Jahnvi Kapoor’s performance received praise.
