Mithun Chakraborty and his older son Mimoh will be coming together for the first time in Enemmy. Produced by Mithun Paparattzy Productions and directed by Ashuu Trikha, the film revolves around four cops, played by Suniel Shetty, Kay Kay Menon, Johnny Lever and Mimoh, with Mithun as a CBI officer.
“The first time we faced the camera together, I was afraid Mimoh would shatter, but he sailed through and I knew my boy had grown up. I pushed him into films too early. It was my mistake. But Vikram Bhatt’s Haunted (2011) was the turning point and I’m sure with Enemmy, he’ll further consolidate his position,” says Mithun.
Will we see the father and son duo do a remix of Disco Dancer in their home production? “No you won’t, but Mimoh is doing an item number with Johnny bhai and Mumait Khan. And I’ve done a Disco Dancer remix in Golmaal 3 and even in Housefull 2. Sajid (director Sajid Khan) and Farah (choreographer Farah Khan) convinced me to repeat my signature moves,” he smiles.
The sequel is rocking the box-office and Mithun is all praise for the brother-sister duo, who he says really love and respect him and are vocal about it. “Other one-time fans have stopped speaking about me after becoming stars but I saw Farah’s mouth fall open as she viewed my first take on the monitor and Sajid had tears in his eyes after I gave my first shot,” he reminisces.
Sajid waited five years before approaching Mithun for Housefull 2, telling him he’d come only when he had something worthy of him. “Earlier, he’d come with another offer that he wasn’t too happy with, and the film wasn’t made. But with Housefull 2, he was confident of cracking the box-office and he has,” smiles Mithun. “Yes, I know credit for the Friday figures go to today’s stars like Akshay (Kumar) whose off-screen chemistry with me is evident on camera too. But the film’s a hit and like everyone associated with the project, I get to eat a piece of the cake too.”
