New Delhi: The actor who brought new dancing trend ‘Disco’ in tinsel town made groove by his impeccable steps. His dance moves and his own unique dialogue delivery in films like 'Disco Dancer', 'Dance Dance' and 'Agneepath' made him a popular face of the matinee shows in India. Yes we are talking about none other than our disco king, Mithun Chakraborty. As he goes one year older, Mithun Daa celebrates his birthday on the sets of DID.

Although this jovial star  was best known for his dance moves that were imitated by millions of his fans in the 70s and 80s (known more as the disco age of B-town), but a young Mithun had spell-bounded the audience by his acting talent in his debut film 'Mrigaya' which fetched him National Film Award for Best Actor.

Easily one of the most versatile actors of the country, Mithun Chakraborty fell in love and married Sridevi while still being married to Yogeeta Bali, a former actress. Yogeeta Bali couldn't digest this and tried committing suicide. The Mithun-Sridevi marriage cracked after the incident. The couple is a happy family now and has four kids including actor Mimoh.

Recently, he was seen in movies like 'Guru', 'Golmaal 3’, 'Chandni Chowk to China' etc. He's currently basking in the glory of being the ‘Mahaguru’ on a kids Dance reality show. We wish a hearty and healthy wish to our Dada on his birthday and pray that he keeps rocking throughout his life.
