Namashi posted a video on his Instagram story capturing father Mithun's response to the Padma Bhushan Award win. In the video, the veteran actor expressed, "Bohot khushi, bohot anand, sab kuch mila ke ek aisi feeling hai jo main bayaan nahi kar sakta. Bohot takleefo ke baad jab itna bada sammaan milta hai toh uski feeling hi kuch aur hoti hai."
He continued, "Sab ko thank you itna pyaar aur sammaan dene ke liye. Aur main iss award ko dedicate kar raha hoon mere saare fans ko, India aur world main. Jo bhi, jinhone bhi mujhe niswarth pyaar diya hai, mere well wishers ko, sab ke liye main yeh dedicate kar raha hoon. Thank you for giving me so much love and respect."
In an exclusive conversation with News18, Namashi shared his thoughts on his father's achievement, stating, "I think India has finally given its OG hero his due. My father, in his entire life, has never asked for an award. He always won them because of his own merit. That’s what makes us prouder."
In addition to Mithun, other distinguished recipients of the Padma Bhushan include the renowned singer Usha Uthup, acclaimed music composer Pyarelal Sharma from the iconic Laxmikant-Pyarelal duo, and the late Tamil actor Vijayakanth, who is honoured posthumously.
