In an interview to Mirror earlier (December 21, 2015) Mithun Chakraborty’s son Mahaakshay, following rampant speculations surrounding his father’s health, had revealed that the veteran actor was laid low following a bout of sickness.
In 2008, Mithun was shooting for Soham Shah’s actionpacked thriller ‘Luck’ when a daring stunt-gone-awry left him with a back injury. While the spasms eased up after a while, the back ache returned in 2015. The same year, a bout of fever forced him into a brief hibernation and last year, he flew out to Los Angeles for treatment.
Talking about his health and treatment, Mithun Da stated at an event, “I’m completely cured but the doctors have warned that my health now will depend on the lifestyle choices I make here on. I was bedridden for a long time but I have recovered and hopefully, have learnt a lesson from the past.”
When asked about the actors on the show The Drama Company, the actor added, “All the actors on this show are established names and have proved themselves in the field of comedy while I have been doing only dance shows so it’s more difficult for me. I have shot for two episodes and their talent has left me speechless. Their timing is fantastic, I’m the one who’s nervous.”
Besides this show, he has signed a handful of films and has begun shooting for them. “I am doing Geher with Ram Gopal Varma and Anil Sharma’s Genius. There’s also Anup Jalota’s Saahas and a Kannada film, The Villain, which features Sudeep and Shiv Rajkumar. They wanted me desperately so I took them up on the offer. Except Anup’s film, all the others are on the floors. I don’t think I can handle more work at this time,” he added.
While he has judged a dance-based reality show in the past, the actor believes a comedy series will be a challenge for him.
Mithun was also asked about Kapil Sharma, to which he replied, “Kapil is one of the biggest talents. In my film career, I have never seen such a talented person. Kapil is really good. His show is so good and it’s huge, hope we get to his level before falling flat.”
The Drama Company also stars Krushna Abhishek, Ali Asgar, Sanket Bhosle, Ridhima Pandit, Sudesh Lehri, Sugandha Mishra to name a few.
