Mamitha’s journey in the film industry began at the age of 16 with her debut in “Sarvori Palakkan.” Despite her young age, she continued to pursue acting, balancing it with her studies. She even enrolled in Kochi’s Sacred Heart College to study Psychology, showing her commitment to education alongside her passion for acting.

Over the years, Mamitha appeared in various films, including teen dramas and supporting roles in bigger productions. It was her performance in “Operation Java” in 2021 that caught the attention of many, paving the way for more prominent roles in films like “Kho-Kho,” “Super Sharanya,” and “Pranaya Vilasam.”

However, it was “Premalu” that truly put Mamitha on the map. The film, made on a modest budget, became a massive success, earning a whopping Rs 136 crores worldwide. This remarkable achievement not only made Mamitha a household name in Kerala but also garnered her recognition across India. Her recent debut in the Tamil film industry with “Rebel” further solidified her status as a rising star.

What makes Mamitha‘s success even more impressive is that she achieved all this at a young age, surpassing the box office collections of established actresses like Katrina Kaif, Yami Gautam, and Kriti Sanon. “Premalu” stands as the eighth-highest-grossing Indian film of 2024 as of April 24, a testament to Mamitha’s talent and appeal.
