Mithun Chakraborty is one of the most loved superstars in the country. But do you know that he probably was one of the ‘most working’ superstars? While going through some of the data and facts, we found that the OG Disco Dancer of India had done 50 films in a span of only four years! That number just popped into our eyes, and our brains froze!

But it is a fact. While going through Mithun’s filmography, we discovered that from 1997 – 2000, in a span of four years, the superstar did 50 whopping films. Looking at the list, two things were very clear – A. He was a hustler, you say why? Because all of these films flopped except for two. B. He wasn’t bothered much about what people said!

In 1997, Mithun Chakraborty was featured in eight films, followed by 17 films in 1998, 14 films in 1999, and 11 films in 2000. However, only two of these films attained the status of being semi-hit. These two films were Shapath in 1997 and Chandaal in 1999! Together, these 50 films collected 71.12 crore at the box office.

Mithun Chakraborty’s most successful yet disastrous attempt this year was Shera, which collected 2.62 crore at the box office. Ganga Ki Kasam and Aaag hi Aag were the other two popular disasters.

Films In 2000

Jwalamukhi, Billa No. 786, Aaj Ka Ravan, and Dada were all popular yet disastrous films. Mithun’s highest-earning film of this year was Sultaan, which collected 1.38 crore.

If you are wondering how we reached such extensive research, then it was just Mithun Chakraborty and his health-grabbing headlines. For the unversed, the actor suffered a brain stroke and was admitted to a hospital in Kolkata. He was about to shoot for a film a week from now in Bengaluru, but he suffered an attack and is struggling with his health.

However, the latest reports suggest that the actor’s condition is now stable, and he is retaining his sense. In fact, he has also greeted West Bengal BJP Chief, who dropped in to visit the ailing actor.

We also wish Dada a speedy recovery. Hope he turns hale and healthy soon.
