Kolkata: Veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty was admitted to a private medical facility in Kolkata on Saturday morning after he complained of chest pain.
He was feeling uneasy, following which he was taken to the hospital. Currently, he is undergoing treatment, and his health condition remains a matter of concern, India Today reported quoting sources close to the actor.
His family is yet to confirm or issue a formal statement. The hospital has also not issued any statement so far.
Mithun Chakraborty was conferred with the prestigious Padma Bhushan in January. Following the news, the actor and politician conveyed his sentiments through a video message in Bengali “I am proud, I am happy to have received this award. I would like to thank everyone. I have never asked anything for myself from anyone. I am experiencing the feeling of receiving something without asking today. It’s a different feeling altogether. It’s a great feeling.”
Mithun was last seen as a judge in the dance reality show Dance Bangla Dance. He also featured in Bengali movie ‘Kabuliwala’, released in December 2023. “Kabuliwala is not just any film that I thought of doing casually. Although it’s a Bengali film, it’s important to remember that it’s about an Afghan speaking Bengali, not a Bengali-speaking Afghan. Nowadays, everyone observes everything very minutely, so this was a big deal. The film shows how an Afghan learns Bengali and speaks it with a mix of Hindi and Bengali.” Mithun said this while speaking to Hindustan Times Bangla about the film.
