Love it or hate it, it is true that Bollywood is one of the biggest identifying factors for India whether we agree with it or not. And over the years, we’ve had people who made the industry what it is today. The Bollywood industry is something that has evolved over the years and has reached new heights. For making it possible to reach this level, the credit solely goes to all the classic actors and actresses of Bollywood.
Just like the industry has evolved, so have the stars. But what excites us the most is the lavish lifestyle of these Bollywood actors and it always makes us curious to know what these stars own and what they are up to these days.
Though there are various classic actors in the Bollywood industry, today, with this post, we are going to ascertain you about the great deeds of the Bollywood actor “Mithun Chakraborty”. Apart from being an immensely talented actor, he is also a singer, producer, writer, social worker, entrepreneur, television presenter, and a former Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament.
The actor lovingly addressed as Mithun Daa by his fans became popular in the Bollywood industry with his performance in the film, Disco Dancer. He has also been a part of various other blockbuster movies.
It would be highly surprising for you to know that the real name of the actor is Gouranga Chakraborty who was born and brought up in Kolkata, India. The actor has not only worked in Hindi cinema but is also famous for his acclaimed performances in various Bengali, Odia, Bhojpuri, Tamil, and Kannada movies which crosses over 350 movies as of now.
Apart from being a prominent figure in the acting industry, he has also been a brand ambassador for various companies starting with being an ambassador for Panasonic electronics for India back in the late 1980s.
He also has a political career where he joined as a Member of Parliament after he was nominated for the Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament elections by the Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee on 7 February 2014. On 26 December 2016, he resigned as a Rajya Sabha MP.
Apart from the name and fame that he has earned from this industry, he also successfully owns a property worth more than 258 crore rupees and lives in a ravishing bungalow in Mumbai with his family. He is also the owner of the Monarch Group of Hotels having his roots spread in locations like Tamil Nadu, Masinagudi, and Mysore.
Coming to his family, the actor has three sons and one daughter. His son, Mahaakshay Chakraborty is also an actor who got married last year to the popular TV soap opera actress Madalasa Sarma who has gained immense popularity with her work in the recent daily soap “Anupama” as “Kavya”.
Coming to the actor’s good deeds, even after being a father to three sons, the actor along with his wife actress, Yogeeta Bali decided against adopting Dishani, their daughter. They found her in a trash can and raised her as their daughter. She is currently studying abroad and is soon to be expected to make her remark in Bollywood.
While no one is bothered about what all bad is happening around them, the actor Mithun Chakraborty came forward to raise a child found in a trash can which certainly depicts that there is still some humanity left in people.
While something like this is done by an established person, it helps to set a good example amongst the public and fans and helps us to encourage and engage towards contributing our bit towards society.
Bringing up an orphan and giving them a good upbringing, love, and respect that they deserve is certainly one of the greatest works that we can do Right!!?? While most people think twice before going for such things, Mithun and his wife didn’t hesitate in doing such a thing and brought home Dishani and raised her as their daughter.
The story sets in around some 20 years back when Mithun heard a little girl crying in a dustbin. The actor went forward and held the little girl in his hands and finally went on to adopt the child.
He not only gave her a beautiful name, Dishani but also sent her for further studies abroad. As per the reports, Dishani would be soon seen making her debut in the Bollywood industry. The girl has all grown up and looks beautiful.
