    Mithun Chakraborty might be over 70 years old, but he has continuously been working. The Disco Dancer had made a mark as the dancing king of Bollywood , and in his 70s he is not just acting but has also been judging several reality shows at different points in time. Now, in a recent interview he opened up about how difficult the pandemic was.

    The actor also owns restaurant chains and has revealed that it suffered a huge loss during the pandemic. In an interview with TOI, the actor said that due to the pandemic, he barely made any money from the restaurants and some days, even a cup of coffee would not sell! He said, “Coronavirus ne bedaa gark kar rakha hai (Coronavirus ruined it all).” Moreover, the time was worse for those working in the restaurants and therefore, he asked the staff to divide whatever money was coming in without thinking about himself.

    However, he was also worried for his family. Being the only earning member in the family even at 71 years, he was tensed as to how he would run the family. But he decided to help the employees. He also said that he shuddered at the thought of how daily wage earners managed their livelihood during the tough times.

    The actor has recently joined as the judge in the talent hunt show, Hunarbaaz . Recalling his days of struggle, he had revealed on the show, “I thought no one would cast me as a hero, hence I decided to become a villain, moreover a dancing villain. I used to walk to work so that I could save money. I used to dance in big parties because I would get food to eat.” The actor is also awaiting the release of his upcoming film- The Kashmir Files , directed by Vivek A gnihotri.
