Veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty’s father Basantakumar Chakraborty passed away in Mumbai on Tuesday. He was 95 and was battling age-related ailments for some time.
However, Mithun will not be able to meet his father as the actor is currently stranded in Bengaluru due to the lockdown. He was there for a shoot and after the 21-day nationwide lockdown was announced, he had to stay back in Bengaluru. The actor is trying to reach Mumbai to perform his father’s last rites.
Popular Bengali actress Rituparna Sengupta confirmed the news on Twitter as she wrote, "My deep condolences on the sudden demise of your father, Mithun Da. Stay strong & may his soul rest in peace forever (sic)."
Basantakumar Chakraborty is survived by his wife Santimoyee Chakraborty, his eldest son Gouranga Chakraborty aka Mithun and his family.
Our deep condolences are with the Chakraborty family...
