Mithun Chakraborty Biography

Mithun Chakraborty Education

He primarily attended schools in Kolkata and received his bachelor’s in chemistry from Scottish Church College there.

Mithun Chakraborty Early Life

Gourang Chakraborty (Mithun) was born to a Hindu and Bengali family on June 16, 1950, in Barisal, East Pakistan (now Bangladesh). He currently resides in Ooty, Tamil Nadu, with his family. After receiving his degree, he relocated to Pune, India to enrol in the Film and Television Institute of India. He was a close buddy of famed Naxalite Ravi Ranjan before breaking into the film industry, but until the mid-1970s, very few people were aware of this. He made the decision to leave the Naxal movement and pursue a career in filmmaking as a result of problems at home.

Hindu Brahmins Basantokumar and Santirani Chakraborty, both from Bengal, were the parents of Mithun Da. When an electrical current killed him, his lone sibling also perished. With Indian actress Yogeeta Bali (Kishore Kumar’s third wife), he had four children in 1979: three sons (Mahaakshay Chakraborty aka Mimoh, Ushmey Chakraborty, and Namashi Chakraborty), and a daughter (Dishani Chakraborty).

Mithun Chakraborty Career

In 1976, Mithun Da made his acting debut in the film “Mrigaya,” for which he received the National Film Award for Best Actor. He appeared in more than 400 films. He dominated Bollywood in the 1980s with films like “Mujhe Insaaf Chahiye,” “Ghar Ek Mandir,” “Pyaar Jhukta Nahin,” “Swarag Se Sunder,” and “Pyaar Ka Mandir,” and he hasn’t looked back since. He rose to fame in India after the 1982 release of the movie “Disco Dancer.” His dance moves to the tune “Disco Dancer” are still well-known today.

Along with Hindi, he also worked on films in Bengali, Oriya, Bhojpuri, Punjabi, Kannada, and Tamil. With the release of “Troyee” in 1982, he made his cinematic debut in Bengali. He has accumulated a number of National Film Critics Circle Best Actor and Supporting Actor awards throughout the years. In 2007, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Role Model of the Year Awards.

Additionally, he has hosted reality shows like “Dadagiri Unlimited” on Zee Bangla, “Rannaghore Rockstar” on ETV Bangla, and the Bengali version of “Bigg Boss.” You might see him right now (in 2018) on The Drama Company on Sony TV.
