Early life and education[edit]

Bhaa was known for his manipulational skills and oratory abilities.[25] He had also undergone expert training in martial arts to the grade of black belt[2][26] that made him excel in fight sequences.

Film career[edit]


Chakraborty receiving his Best Actor National Award for Mrigaya

Mithun Chakraborty made his debut in the 1976 Mrinal Sen-directed film Mrigaya, for which he won the National Film Award for Best Actor.[2] His film Mera Rakshak was a success of 1978. Chakraborty rose to stardom with the low budget Ravikant Nagaich directed spy film Surakshaa, released in 1979. The film was so successful, that many movies starring Chakraborty in the lead role were launched. The combination with director Deepak Bahry also happened for the first time in 1979 with Tarana. Another important film for Chakraborty in the late 70s was Prem Vivah, directed by Basu Chatterjee.


Chakraborty had over 110 releases in the 1980s.[2] Disco Dancer released in 1982, became a blockbuster and made Chakraborty a star.[2] He had also done lighter roles in Shaukeen, Sun Sajna and Aamne Samne. As Amitabh Bachchan moved to politics, Chakraborty became Bollywood' s second highest paid star after Bachchan.[27] He also became India's highest tax payer in 1986.[28] Chakraborty went on to star in a number of romantic and family dramas during the 1980s, such as Mujhe Insaaf Chahiye, Ghar Ek Mandir, Pyaar Jhukta Nahin, Swarag Se Sunder and Pyaar Ka Mandir. These films remain his most commercially successful films to date.[29] He was also widely recognized as an action hero in films like Jagir, Jaal, Dilwaala, Watan Ke Rakhwale and Waqt Ki Awaz. His performances never won any award in 1986 and 1987 as Filmfare Awards was never announced due to technical reasons. As Chakraborty always had higher number of releases, sometimes it affected the business of his own films as happened in 1989, where he had a record 19 films.


Chakraborty had another 100 plus releases in this decade too,[2] starting with Agneepath which won him the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor. Films like Shandaar,Gunahon Ka Devta, Pyar Ka Devta,Trinetra and Mere Sajana Saath Nibhana followed. In 1992, the critically acclaimed Bengali film Tahader Katha won him his second National Film Award for Best Actor.[2] In this period he decided to take a break from Mumbai. He shifted his entire family to Ooty and he constructed The Monarch Hotel. Chakraborty then decided to do movies only to be shot at Ooty and nearby locations and he provided discount rates to the film crew to stay in his hotel as well. This strategy paid off as numerous films starring Chakraborty was launched every week, so he shifted his focus from mainstream Hindi cinemas to low-budget movies.[2] Dalaal was released followed by other low-budget films like Phool Aur Angaar, Ravan Raaj: A True Story and Shapath, which created a market for low budget productions.[30]

Jallad won him the Filmfare Best Villain Award and Star Screen Award Best Villain for the year 1995. His economical film production was popular as Mithun's Dream Factory.[31][32][33][34][35] Even he could not do Mani Ratnam's Tamil film Iruvar as his character had to crop his hair, which would have affected his other 15 films at that time. By this time, Chakraborty held the record for appearing in the most number of Hindi films as a hero. A third National Award followed in 1998, this time for the Best Supporting Actor, for his portrayal of, in G. V. Iyer's Swami Vivekananda.[2] Once again the overdose of Chakraborty releases affected the business as 1998 and 1999 itself had almost 30 releases. Meantime, he paid more tax than anyone else in the country in the mean period for 5 continuous years, from 1995 to 1999.[36][37] This decade proved Chakraborty as a businessman more than a star as low-budget filmmakers were given their due by Mithun. He operates hotels in Mudhumalai and Ooty in Tamil Nadu, Darjeeling, Siliguri[38] and Kolkata.[39]


Mithun's Dream Factory films still continued to hold the audiences, moreover he started doing more Bengali films and gave consistent films like Titli, Guru, Barood, Yuddho, Tulkalam and Rehmat Ali. Chakraborty also made a comeback to the mainstream Hindi film industry in 2005 with the film Elaan.[40] After a few supporting roles in films such as Lucky: No Time for Love (2005) and Dil Diya Hai (2006), he starred in Mani Ratnam's film Guru. He was also acclaimed for his villainous role in Kalpana Lajmi's Chingaari (2005).[2] His 2009 movie Zor Lagaa Ke...Haiya! won multiple International awards[41] and Chal Chalein was appreciated by critics for its bold theme. Critically acclaimed Phir Kabhi with Dimple Kapadia had a première through a direct to home (DTH) release in September 2009 and won as many as six awards in as many categories at the Los Angeles Reel Awards 2009.

His first release of 2014 Kaanchi... directed by Subhash Ghai where he played an evil politician wearing facial prosthetics has won him critical acclaim.[42]
