Dance+ is back with its 5th season. This season has four captains instead of three fighting for the coveted title. The captains on Dance+ 5 are Dharmesh Yelande, Punit Pathak, Suresh Mukund and Karishma Chavan. In this week’s episode, actor-dancer Mithun Chakraborty will grace the show.
Superstar Mithun Da will take center stage and help the team select the Top 16 contestants of this season. In order to make the superstar feel at home, the entire team of Dance+ 5 gave a special tribute performance during the shoot. They covered his entire journey right from his birth until he became The Mithun Chakraborty in Bollywood.
Did you know Mithun Da’s real name is Gourang Chakraborty? Did you know Remo D’Souza’s first directorial debut was a Bengali film which Mithun Da had signed? He was a football player in his childhood days. This and many more unknown facts about Mithun Da will unfold on the stage of Dance+ 5.
As the performance dwelled into his film journey, they revealed that filmmakers rejected him and called him a ‘bad’ actor. He received a lot of rejections due to his dusky complexion. It was in Mumbai that he got his name Mithun Chakraborty. Watching his journey once again in front of his eyes left dada teary eyed and he said, “Bas karo, kitna rulaoge yaar?”
Watch this heartfelt performance by Remo, Dharmesh, Punit, Suresh, Karishma, Raghav and the contestants only on Dance+ 5.
