Mithun Chakraborty contemplated suicide over his profession. He was bred to battle and couldn’t lose, he said.
Mithun Chakraborty recalls a day when he was depressed and even considered suicide. In a recent interview,
Mithun admitted that he had doubts about his ability to achieve his goals. A return to Kolkata was not an option for him at the moment.
Best Actor went to Mithun for Mrigayaa, his first National Film Award (1976). The Don, Jallaad and Agneepath are some of his best works, as are Disco Dancer,
Surakksha, Sahhas, Wardat, Wanted, Boxer, Pyar Jhukta Nahin, Pyari Behna, Avinash and Dance Dance.
Aside from Tahader Katha (1992), he was also honored for his work on Swami Vivekananda (1993). (1998).
In an interview with the Times of India, Mithun stated that he was a fan of the show “This isn’t something I bring up often, and there isn’t a designated time for it.
There is a risk that artists would become demotivated if we talk about difficult times. My issues, on the other hand, were enormous.
I contemplated suicide when I realized I couldn’t achieve my goals. I was unable to return to Kolkata for a variety of reasons.
Never, ever take your own life without a fight. I’m a born fighter, and I’ve never been defeated. Now look at me.”
