In an interview with PTI, while talking about Bappi da, Mithun said, “The best part was that Bappi da understood my dancing. I brought something new– disco dancing, which was a departure from others. Bappi da understood that I dance ‘hatke’ (different) and so he started giving music accordingly. It became like 1 1=2, hum jud gaye (we connected). When we became one, we gave legendary hits.”
Earlier, while speaking to Hindustan Times, Mithun talked about how the industry over the years has been changed. He also revealed his love for Allu Arjun and his super-hit film ‘Pushpa: The Rise’.
One being asked if he feels that Pushpa is similar to the movies that he did in 80’s and 90’s, he stated, “Yes exactly like that, It is all about playing to the gallery. Allu’s. Allu Arjun is a superstar and his superstardom has been used in the film with some fantastic timing. That is why people like it. I watched it. I found it beautiful. Allu has been one of my favourite actors.”
