In 2016, actor-turned politician Mithun Chakraborty who was elected to the Rajya Sabha by Trinamool Congress(TMC) resigned from the Upper House citing health reasons. And since then, the actor's health has been a cause of concern for everyone in the industry.
And now giving an update on the same, Mithun Chakraborty's youngest son Namashi, told a leading newspaper that the actor is currently in Kerala undergoing therapy for his back and will be in Mumbai soon. He also clarified that everytime that his father travels to Los Angeles, everyone starts assuming that he sick. Namashi also said that 90% of his back pain has gone and he is waiting to return to work soon.
For those unaware, sometime back Mithun Chakraborty's manager informed the media and released a statement saying: "Dada had a hairline fracture in his back, but thankfully he doesn't need a surgery."
Mithun Da admitted and told a publication in 2017 that he has been completely cured. He also said that he was bedridden for a long time but have recovered and have learnt a lesson from the past.
After a two-year break because of chronic health issues, Chakraborty featured in Anil Sharma's 'Genius'. His son Namashi also said that he will soon come before the release of his next film 'The Tashkent Files' — a thriller film about the death of former Indian prime minister Lal Bahadur Shastri.

The film is produced by Pranay Chokshi, Haresh Patel, Pallavi Joshi and Vivek. The movie is slated to release on 12th April.
For the uninitiated, Mithun and Naseer saab had a fallout years back due to professional rivalry. “They both told me that they had problems, but they were big stars in their prime, and are more mature now. Naseer came on board immediately, but Mithun took time. But, they loved working with each other, and we realised that their fight was media-created,” ,” shared director Vivek Agnihotri with a news publication.
Meanwhile, Namashi will debut along side Ayushmann Khurrana in ‘Article 15’, directed by Anubhav Sinha. Mithun was last seen attending his son Mimoh Chakraborty's wedding with his girlfriend Madalsa Sharma. Here's a picture -
