Like millions of others, Sumeet Mittal too yearned to come to Mumbai to give wings to his dream of becoming an actor. However, being a married man and a father, he had the welfare of his wife, Shashi, and four-year-old daughter to think about. It would mean uprooting their lives from Ahmedabad and leaving behind the stability of the family textile business. As a bachelor, venturing into the unknown might seem exciting, but with a family to fend for, it was a daunting prospect. It would, by no means, be an easy move, but the decision was clear to his wife: she would leave no stone unturned to help her husband achieve his dream. So they sold their house in their hometown and moved to Mumbai in 1998 to begin a new journey.
