This isn’t the first time when Dishani has poured her heart out for her daddy. As she had done something similar on the occasion of Father’s day (June 16, 2019), when she had posted a heartfelt note for him on Instagram. The doting daughter had shared five beautiful pictures from their memory lane and along with it she had written a long note, and it could be read as “Happy father’s day to all the super dad’s out there. and a very happy birthday to my mine. A true superhero & superstar.” Take a look.
Well, Dishani is not the biological daughter of Mithun but much more than that. Mithun had rescued her from a garbage bin in her childhood. Yes, you read that right. Years ago, a leading Bengali daily had once reported that a child had been abandoned by her family and left her all alone near a garbage bin. A few passers-by had noticed her and one of them took her home. Mithun had read the news the next day and had immediately darted across the city. He had instantly expressed his wish to adopt the baby to the rescuers. His wife, Yogita Bali had fully supported him in his noble endeavour and had taken an instant liking to the baby. They had completed the paper works and had taken the baby to their home and the rest is history.
Coming back to the noble actor’s birthday, in an interview with the IANS, Mithun Chakraborty’s son, Namashi Chakraborty has revealed that his father is extremely saddened by the news of Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely demise and isn’t going to celebrate his birthday. He said, “Given the current scenario of the COVID-19 pandemic and the untimely demise of our dear colleague Sushant, this year me and my father have decided to not celebrate on birthday and we urge people to stay safe and stay indoors as much as they can. No matter who we are, we don't know what someone in our friends and family circle is going through. Allow their thoughts and feelings to come out in the form of words. We all can save a life by just building a small habit of listening.”
The doting son, Namashi has also posted a birthday wish for his daddy dearest on his Instagram handle. The actor has posted a picture with him in which we can see him talking with his father. Along with the beautiful photo, Namashi wrote a simple but a caption with a deeper meaning and it can be read as “Happy Birthday Dad. You are my hero. #happybirthday.” Take a look.
