Mithun Chakraborty is a fine actor and an even finer dancer. The actor first turned heads with his groovy performance in the 1982 film Disco Dancer. He has been a heartthrob ever since and has appeared in over 400 films in multiple languages like Bengali, Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Punjabi, and others.
He impressed the audience with his dancing skills to an extent that he was dubbed as the ‘Michael Jackson of Bollywood’. He made his debut in Bollywood in 1976 and now it is safe to say is an icon.
As the actor celebrates his 71st birthday, we look back at some of his greatest hits which had all of us grooving and moving.

Super Dancer – A Bappi Lahiri product, this number is catchy and is from the movie Dance Dance.
Rock and Roll – This song was sung by Kishore Kumar and Nazia Hassan. However, Mithun’s unmissable charm is the star of this song.
Jhoom Jhoom Jhoom Baba – This song is still a party favourite and Mithun’s energetic drumming in the video had everyone shaking a leg.
Yaad Aa Raha Hai – This is another Mithun classic as this song was what gave him the name ‘Disco King.’
