Mithun Chakraborty (Indian Film Actor)


MITHUN CHAKRABORTY A TALENTED DANCER

 


Mithun Chakraborty was born in Ujirpur, Barisal and educated at the Scottish Church College, Calcutta, from where he earned his undergraduate degree in chemistry (B.Sc). After that Mithun attended and graduated from the Film and Television Institute of India. Mithun started his film career at a late age of 26 in a film made by Mrinal Sen.

It is a little known fact that Mithun was a staunch Naxalite before entering the film industry. But tragedy struck his family when his only brother got accidentally electrocuted and killed in a freak accident. Mithun returned to his family and left the Naxalite fold, even though doing so meant a grave risk to his own life from the Naxalites, because this was considered a one-way. This proved to be a turning point in his life and became one of the prime causes that led to his iconic status. Another lesser known fact is that he had undergone expert training in martial arts.

Mithun is married to Indian actress Yogita Bali and has six children, four sons and two daughters. The eldest son, Mimoh Chakraborty is an upcoming actor whose debut movie is scheduled to be launched in 2007.

Numerous sources claim that Chakraborty had a relationship with actress Sridevi from 1986 to 1987, and that Sridevi ended the relationship when she found out that he had not divorced his first wife, Yogita Bali. Chakraborty and Sridevi were believed to have been secretly married and that the union was later annulled.

showcased him as a talented dancer. During the mid 1980s he was regarded as a rival to Amitabh Bachchan as the genre of films he did then showcased him as an angry young man at odds with the ills of society and corruption. This was the characterization of an image that made Amitabh Bachchan famous in the 1970s.

Mithun achieved not only commercial success but also tremendous critical acclaim. Mithun  performances in his first film Mrigaya as well as for films such as Tahader Katha and Swami Vivekananda, were widely appreciated.

During the mid 1990s Mithun shifted his focus from the mainstream Hindi cinema and went into starring in his own low-budget B-grade movies. These movies were mainly produced to cater to the audiences of Madhya Pradesh and Bihar, where Mithun has a cult-following even today, thanks to his Bhojpuri movies. Mithun made a comeback to the Bollywood mainstream film industry in 2005 with the film Elaan which was not successful. After a few supporting roles in films such as Lucky: No Time for Love (2005) and Classic: Dance of Love (2005), he gave a critically acclaimed performance in Chingari (2005) which was however, not a commercial success. Mithun recently starred in Mani Ratnam's film Guru for which he received lots of acclaim.
