During the shooting of the film The Kashmir Files, actor Mithun Chakraborty’s health deteriorated due to a serious stomach infection. The director of the film, Vivek Agnihotri had to stop the ongoing shooting of the film owing to the same reason.
Director Vivek Agnihotri stated “We were shooting for a big action sequence. Everything was centered around Mithun Chakraborty’s character, but suddenly he suffered from a bout of infection, and it was very bad. No normal person can stand or still in that condition but he went out for some time and came back and finished the entire shoot. In no time, it was so bad I couldn’t imagine anybody shooting in such a condition. But, he went ahead and gave the shot. That is the reason why he has been a superstar. He told me in the last so many years he hasn’t fallen sick. He was constantly asking me, “your shooting is not getting halted right?”. I am really, really surprised because I haven’t seen anyone in the new generation working so dedicatedly.”
Further, he added “Mithun Da is the most focused hardworking, and professional actor and that’s why he is a superstar. Not only that when we came back for the shoot in the morning, but he also charged everybody with his energy and made sure that everyone is working at a fast speed. Because of that, we could cover the backlog which we had. Actors like Mithun Chakraborty are assets to any unit, any crew, and any film.”
The movie The Kashmiri Files is about the predicament of the Kashmiri Hindus when they had to migrate from Kashmir. Apart from Mithun Chakraborty, the film also casts popular actor Anupam Kher in a major role. The film The Kashmir Files is all set to release in the year 2021.
