Mithun Chakraborty’s son Namashi Chakraborty says people focus on dad and not mom Yogeeta Bali
Namashi Chakraborty was in a recent interview with Aaj Tak where he opened up about the fact that everyone talks about his father Mithun Chakraborty and not his mother Yogeeta Bali who is a former Indian actress. He said that mostly, people associate him with his father alone and no one has ever mentioned his mom. “Even she was a wonderful actor in her era. People get focused on Papa. I share a special relationship with my mom. She keeps the family together,” he divulged.
“I can only watch her onscreen with Papa”
Further on in the interview, the actor said that he has watched a lot of films in which her mother played an important role. “I have seen some of her films but she gets embarrassed and tells me ‘Do not watch my films’. Between the 70s and the 80s, she did more than 100 films. Among her films, I like Ajnabee and Beshaq. I can only watch her onscreen with Papa. I feel bad when she is with some other hero,” he said adding that his entire life he has watched his dad act. However, he feels weird when he watches his mother on the big screen.
