Mithun Chakraborty had a glorious career path. He debuted in 1976 in Mrinal Sen’s Mrigayaa with Mamata Shankar and bagged the National Award in the Best Actor category. That was just the beginning. The actor saw many ups and downs in his career and delivered entertainment consistently. This year, he was awarded the Padma Bhushan.
Mithun is happy about getting the award and said, “I am proud and joyful getting the award. I want to thank you all. I never wanted anything from anyone. I feel the joy of getting something without asking for it.” Mithun recently came back to India after a long foreign trip. A close source said that he would come to Kolkata at the beginning of February. He is coming to shoot for Raj Chakraborty’s next film.
