As Mithun turned a year older today, we are going back in time when he opened up about actresses who refused to work with him on the advice of male actors in the industry. Talking about ‘a lot of obstacles’, Mithun once said in an interview that he doesn’t want to and doesn’t want to ‘demoralise or discourage so many people’ with his ‘depressing’ struggle story.
However, the veteran actor recalled being targetted by his competitive male actors. Without taking names, he said that even after making a name in the industry, he had heard stories of female actors refusing to work with him citing that the ‘other heroes’ didn’t want them to work with Mithun.
While he faced ups and downs in his career, Mithun said he continued his work keeping faith in himself and believed that it must be him who’s lacking somewhere which is why people are saying no to him, and thought that he must correct himself. “I will remain ever-grateful to Zeenat Aman ji for that, to break that barrier and get into the A-grade of stardom,” he further added.
On the work front, Mithun was last shooting for his upcoming film ‘The Kashmir Files’ helmed by Vivek Agnihotri. The story focuses on Kashmiri Pandits from the timeline of 1989-1990.
