In 2013, Mittal was invited by the BBC for the prestigious 100 Women Conference in London. Mittal has been featured in the American documentary ‘Stand-Up Planet’, alongside American and South African comics, which is a stand-up comic’s quest to find some of the best humour coming from corners of the developing world.
Mittal’s material has been described as “cutting edge.” Her jokes cover everything from Osama to sanitary napkins, toddlers to Miss India winners. She says, “My brand of humour is personal and observational.”
