Mitali Rannorey – Modeling was meant to be for her

in Entertainment by

Mitali Rannorey was just like the kids in her neighborhood. She went to school, college and eventually graduated with an engineering degree. But, life had more to offer for this dusky beauty. Just before finishing her engineering course, she was introduced to Prasad Bidapa, who is one of the elite Bangalore based fashion stylist and choreographer for various fashion shows. Mitali had absolutely no ambition or dream of becoming a model. However, Prasad Bidapa discovered for her a career in modeling that she cherishes till date. “I feel blessed to have been given this opportunity by Mr. Prasad Bidapa. He has groomed me into a personality and entertainer. I could have been caught in the net of the regular ‘Nine to Five’, but with a little bit of luck and right guidance, I found myself walking the ramp with some of the biggest names in the industry.”

I feel blessed to have been given this opportunity by Mr. Prasad Bidapa. He has groomed me into a personality and entertainer. I could have been caught in the net of the regular ‘Nine to Five’, but with a little bit of luck and right guidance, I found myself walking the ramp with some of the biggest names in the industry.”

Mitali has always been an easy going and fun loving person. She never stresses about things that don’t go her way. She instead focuses on things that our under her control. “I am not a stuck-up person. I happily embrace change and welcome the good and bad in my life. Everything happens for a reason, and I do not stress on things that are uncontrollable. However, one area that I feel I should work on more is being more socially active. I sometimes restrict myself to my comfort zone, which prevents me from meeting new people, who I could interact with and learn from.

Mitali got a lot of attention in her college days. Well, we could imagine her sitting an engineering class dominated by boys. She was definitely the reason for the good attendance percentage of her class. “People used to compliment my height, skin color and eyes,” she laughs and says. She admits that she loved the attention, but she was never arrogant or proud about it. It’s something that came her way naturally and she enjoyed it. Being in the industry for a couple of years, Mitali has had the opportunity to do myriad international shows. She loves shopping for clothes and shoes. There’s a high possibility of finding identical dresses in her closet.

It angers Mitali, when people question her about how long she would pursue this career. She cannot comprehend why people struggle to accept her career choice as normal. “I strongly believe that this could be my career for the long run. If I keep myself fit and make the right food choices, I can walk the ramp for a considerable time. Every career is rewarding if we make the right choices and work hard. I work just as hard as anyone doing the ‘white collar’ jobs.” Mitali dispelled rumors about the “casting couch” in her line of work. She explained that the industry acknowledges and respects women who are talented and have what it takes to become a top model. “People would tell you that the fashion world is built on the philosophy of ‘Drugs, Sex and Alcohol’, but in reality even the corporate world or other business units party and go extreme. It’s just that the fashion line is more open, which is why we are asked more questions. It’s not right to label an industry as a whole, but it’s an opinion that will take time to change.”

If given a chance, Mitali would love to go on a date with Tom Hardy. From all the cities she has visited London is her favorite and she would love to settle down there. Before she retires, she would like to make enough money so that she could work with an NGO providing relief to children or animals. She would never want to do something that’s boring or repetitive, because the fashion world has always offered her a different and new experience each time she has walked the ramp.
