Mithun Charaborthy and Salman Khan have fun on the sets of DID
Actor Salman Khan was in a full-on masti mode when he dropped by on the sets of Zee’s DID L’il Masters recently with co-star Katrina Kaif, while promoting his film Ek Tha Tiger. And on the receiving end of this non-stop fun was Grandmaster Mithun Chakraborthy. Not only did Salman drag India’s original disco dancer into taking on a series of crazy challenges and stunts, he also made sure that Mithunda show his signature moves.
An onlooker reveals, “Salman made Mithunda climb up a slippery slope on the stage with his leather shoes on, even as he comically slid back down. Salman also got him to ride pillion with him on a kiddie bicycle and even cornered him into trying the ‘Slow-Mo’ style and catching him unawares by suddenly crawling right between Dada’s legs, leaving the veteran actor stumped and everyone else rolling with laughter.”
Master Geeta Kapoor reveals, “This was by far the most entertaining shoot experience on the show. Salman has done what no one ever managed to do across multiple seasons of Dance India Dance. No one dares to rag Dada! Only Salman could have pulled this off. He always brings such energy on the sets that it’s a pleasure to have him on the show.”
Anchor Jay Bhanushali, who is often at the receiving end of Dada’s challenges, joked that it was a dream come true! “After the merciless manner in which Dada has ragged and bullied me on the show, watching Salman bully Mithunda is like a dream come true… It’s payback time!” he said.
