Actor Mitali Mayekar was in for a pleasant surprise when her group of friends organised a birthday party for her, that too, two days in advance. The Urfi (2015) actor says, “I knew they would plan something, however, hosting a party two days in advance was a nice surprise. They filled the entire corridor of a friend’s place with balloons, which I love. My best friend baked a cheesecake for me. It was a great evening. They tricked me to come out for dinner and planned this. There were friends who I had never expected would come. It has been one of the best birthday’s ever.”

Mitali doesn’t believe in “making resolutions” or “planning for the future”. “I never make resolutions because it’s impossible to keep them. I like to do things when I want to. Also, I like to be childlike because I feel maturity is overrated. I agree that in some situations you are expected to behave like a grown-up but I prefer to look at the world from a child’s perspective.”

Mitali adds, “Life is short; you cannot spend the entire time abiding rules and regulations. You should just focus on doing good work, that’s it.” The actor who is currently in a “transition mode”, says, “I recently did television, so as of now, I am not keen on taking up any TV projects. I want to concentrate on quality projects now. Also, TV is like a fixed job, it puts you in a mould and there is not much scope to explore and experiment. I do not want to get stereotyped; hence, I am looking at film offers now.”
