It was reported earlier this week that Mithun Chakraborty collapsed on location during the shooting of Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files in Kashmir. Confirming the same, Vivek says, “It’s true, Subhash. Mithunda had massive food poisoning. It was frightening. But the magic of working with an old-school superstar like Mithunda is that they are producer-friendly actors.
He added, “They make sure a film never suffers on account of their health. A superstar like Mithunda would never let a unit sit idle just because he’s unwell.”
Frail but determined. Mithunda has resumed work.
Says Vivek, “Mithunda took IVs, injections antibiotics and resumed work in just a day after his illness. The very next day after the food poisoning he was back on the set early in the morning. He completed his work in no time at all. Mithunda is an asset to any unit. He is the portrait of professionalism.”
Mithun Chakraborty was last seen in Vivek Agnihotri’s 2019’s dark horse The Tashkent Files.
