Mitu wears many hats with élan. She is a filmmaker, producer, storyteller and content creator and runs her YouTube Channel Positive Thinkerz. This year marks her 29 years in the industry. Calling it a delightful experience, she reminisces about her journey.

“These 29 years I have faced many ups and downs which came with a lot of learning, and made friends who have now become my family. There were people who backstabbed me and there were people I thought would never support but stood by me. In all, it’s been an enlightening journey and a fun ride. I cherish each and every moment of these 29 years,” she smiles. Mitu started her career with Rajat Sharma’s Aap Ki Adalat in 1933. While she was planning to shift to Mumbai, her father asked her to apply to Zee TV who are looking for trainees.

“I still remember it was the 20th of August. My friends and I were going to watch Khalnayak and I got a call to meet Rajat sir. He took my interview and asked me what I wanted to do. I told him that I want to make films. He asked me to go and meet Ritu Dhawan. I was really excited and agreed on everything she said, and got the job. Seema Sawhney was my first colleague. I used to really enjoy my work there,” she says. From the age of 13, Mitu wanted to be a part of the entertainment industry, but was discouraged by everyone. Then she made a deal with her parents to finish her graduation first and then pursue filmmaking

“From the age of 13 to 21 I did exactly what I was told to do, and at 21 when graduation was over I said that I still wanted to make films. I did an Advertising and Public Relations Course because at that time there was no course for TV and, 7 years later I came to Mumbai,” she adds. Sharing her learning from the industry, Mitu says, “One very big learning from the industry that I have had is that no show ever waits for anyone. I have also learnt that you find friends at the most unlikely places and scenarios. And, people who believe in you will believe in you no matter what, people who don’t want to believe you won’t believe you whatever you do. End of the day, this is a business.”

Mitu also worked with Ekta Kapoor and Balaji Telefilms. “When I was in Balaji I was a hard taskmaster because that’s the way I was supposed to be. We had strict deadlines. We were making products which were on top but having said that we used to have a lot of fun. My closest friends even today are all the cast and crew of Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii. Be it our director, Partho Mitra, Deepak Qazir, our cameraman or the actors. Whatever respect and reputation I have built has been on the basis of the work I have done. I had launched many new talents during my stint there. We were like a family in Balaji. After Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii ended, I threw a huge party for all. Not only actors, but the head of production, Rakesh Roshan were also present. I gave them all with a yellow pencil, which was my coveted thing, as a parting gift. . The second incident that I really remember well is when Sweta Keswani and I had a bad fight on the set of the show. The same evening she called me and said let’s meet in Poptates (laughs softly). That’s the bond we still share,” she adds.

Among the celebrities Mitu bonded well over these years are Sakshi Tanwar , Deepak Qazir, Madhuri Bhatia, Pranitaa Pandit, Arshima, Gautam Chaturvedi, Sucheta Trivedi, Sweta Keswani, Manav Gohil, Bharat Chawda, Raj Singh Arora, Chetan Hansraj, Mita Vashisht, Rajeshwari Sachdeva, among many others. “I have worked with all of them. I have seen the professional growth of actors like Raj Singh Arora, Bharat Chawda, Jatin’s Dhah, Rituraj, Rajeshwari Sachdeva as well. They are all very nice people. I was lucky that I got to work with Meeta Vashisht and Neena (ji) Gupta, Kamlesh Pandey, Purnenedu Shekhar and the late Mohan Bhandari ji. I have learnt a lot from them.,” she says.

Talking about Positive Thinkerz, her YouTube channel, Mitu adds, “My ambition is the reason why I started this. A senior once said if you want to be a name in this industry you either become a producer or an actor. I always wanted to make my own content and started making short films and slowly this idea came about. In 2006 I put my money together to start a production house but the other producer backed out at the last moment. A friend lent me money. We made the pilot Samaan in 2006 which got passed in 2008. After that I made my second short Bawara Maan in 2011, followed by Bhaage Re Maan in 2014-15 which got featured on Netflix and Pehel Ek Nayi Subah in 2016. Later a pilot for Star Bharat was made in 2017 ”

Meanwhile, Mitu has also produced episodes for Nishabd for Atrangii. On her future plans, Mitu shares, “Right now I’m in the process of making more content for Atrangii. We’re pitching to other channels too. People are now calling us for pitches, which is a good thing. So it’s been a good upward journey through and through.”

Somy Ali: In today’s era, we are all hunting for something or the other…nothing seems to be enough for us, which leads to more stress

The biggest stress comes from social media platforms where one is worried about the number of followers they have. Somy feels that it literally takes a toll on the human psyche.

Somy Ali: In today’s era, we are all hunting for something or the other…nothing seems to be enough for us, which leads to more stress

Actor Deepesh Bhan died while playing cricket, and comedian Raju Srivastav was gymming when he collapsed. Their sudden demise raises questions like are we doing something wrong in the name of fitness? Is our fast paced life and extra stress that we don’t acknowledge resulting in something fatal? Looking back our grandparents were not into gymming but they led a healthy life. Somy Ali shares her opinion on the issue. The actor turned humanitarian, who now runs her NGO No More Tears, explains whether we are fundamentally going wrong in our approach to health or not.

“I would first like to express my condolences to Raju’s family and loved ones. Deepesh passed away due to brain aneurysm and Raju died of a heart attack. I do know that brain aneurysm deaths have a lot to do with genetics as my grandfather and his father both passed away due to the same. However, these two actors died at a very young age, which is a significant distinction, when it comes to death between them and my relatives passing away in their 70’s and 80’s. I truly believe that our ancestors had less stress in their lives. They led a simple life unlike what we have today. In this era everyone is a hunter. We are all hunting for something or the other whether it’s love, money or fame. Nothing seems to be enough for us and nothing satisfies us which leads to more stress,” she says.

The biggest stress comes from social media platforms where one is worried about the number of followers they have. Somy feels that it literally takes a toll on the human psyche.

“It’s gotten so absurd that people wake up and check their phones before they do anything else. The competitiveness is out of control with actors and influencers. Our lives are based around how many likes or fame we get from a post. Our past generations did not have to deal with this kind of stress. I have a great deal of respect for those who are not on social media and I also respect those who use their social media to bring forth change and awareness. Bottom line is that we are all chasing something and eventually that chase leads to so much stress and disillusionment that our bodies give up. It’s a very fast paced world and the race is never ending, so one never reaches the crossing line. Stress plays a pivotal role in our lives and I know this personally due to the work I do and the atrocities I witness on a daily basis. Our minds and bodies are severely connected and who knows what these two were carrying in terms of stress or trauma,” she adds.
