Mithun Chakraborty’s Padma Bhushan
In an interview with ETimes last month, Mithun Chakraborty’s son, actor Mimoh Chakraborty, expressed his happiness over Mithun’s Padma Bhushan and said, “I have no words to describe this feeling of euphoria and joy. It is such an honour to feel this moment of pride… Dad is truly deserving of this award and I am so grateful to our government and institutions for honouring dad with this prestigious award. I am so grateful and full of joy right now. Touchwood.”
Mithun Chakraborty, who has acted in around 350 films in Hindi, Bengali, Odia, Bhojpuri, and Tamil, among other Indian languages, had said he could not believe when he first heard that he was being awarded the Padma Bhushan.
In a video message last month, the 73-year-old actor, who made his acting debut in Mrinal Sen’s Mrigaya, and has had a career spanning about five decades, said, “After a lot of struggle and hard work, I have finally received such an honour… It is a feeling I can’t express. I am dedicating this to all my fans in India and abroad, who have given me unconditional love.”
Mithun is among the 17 Padma Bhushan recipients this year.
