“I help other women actors, my co-actors, and artists whenever I can,” she says, adding, “Catfights do exist within our industry. Women are jealous of other women over trivial issues too. Maybe jealous is not the right word, the correct reference here is of insecurity. And the issues of insecurity are sometimes very minor, like who is doing her makeup, I also want that makeup artist because her makeup is looking better than mine!”
While Mitaali says she has gone out of her way to help her junior actresses too, she adds, “But, I have bad experiences with that too.”
Yet, Mitaali remains undeterred in her humane temperament. “Actresses who are good humans definitely help other women actresses, and I am on that path too.”
Mitaali’s attitude is also shaped by her own debut few years ago. “Unfortunately when I was new, I did not get help or guidance from any female actors around me. So, I paved my own way in the industry. Whatever I learnt on my own in this profession, I try and impart the same knowledge to other actresses in the hope that they can be saved some of the struggles that I had to go through when I made my debut in this industry,” she says.
