Mithun Chakraborty recently met Prime Minister Narendra Modi after being honored with the prestigious Padma Bhushan Award. This marked their first encounter since Mithun's hospitalization. The actor's son, Mimoh Chakraborty, took to social media to express his pride and admiration for his father, sharing photos of their meeting and lauding Mithun's achievements.

In a heartwarming message accompanying the photos, Mimoh described Mithun as his hero and expressed his gratitude for being his son. Mithun's resilience and contribution to the entertainment industry have been recognized with numerous accolades, including the National Award, making his Padma Bhushan recognition a fitting addition to his repertoire.

Earlier this year, Mithun faced health challenges, requiring medical treatment following a stroke. During his recovery, Prime Minister Modi personally reached out to check on him, displaying genuine concern for his well-being. However, Mithun revealed that alongside the concern, PM Modi also scolded him for neglecting his health, emphasizing the importance of self-care.

Despite his health setback, Mithun reassured the public of his improving condition, attributing his recovery to better dietary habits. He expressed his eagerness to return to work soon, showcasing his determination and passion for his craft.

The viral video of Mithun receiving the Padma Bhushan from President Draupadi Murmu highlighted his humility and gratitude. Reflecting on the unexpected honor, Mithun expressed his joy and disbelief, emphasizing that he had never sought personal recognition throughout his career.

Mithun's impact transcends borders, with his iconic films like 'Disco Dancer' achieving remarkable success internationally, particularly in the former Soviet Union and Russia. His widespread popularity in these regions solidifies his status as a global icon and cultural ambassador.

Mithun Chakraborty's journey from a National Award-winning debut in 'Mrigayaa' to receiving the Padma Bhushan serves as an inspiration to aspiring actors and fans alike.
