Stars like Michael Jackson never die: Mithun

"Jackson connected himself well with audiences with his mesmerising performances. Such persons never die," Mithun told a local Marathi channel.

"I respect and love two persons the most - Michael Jackson and Mohammed Ali Kile, the boxing legend. That's why I named my son Mimo after these two great personalities - Mi of Michael and Mo of Mohammed Ali.

Mimo, also a good dancer, was launched by Mithun in his debut movie 'Jimmy' which did not do well at the box-office.

Mithun's dancing steps were also compared to that of Jackson, on which he said "it is a compliment, but I am not a patch of Jackson," he said.

"I never happened to meet him or got an opportunity to speak to him (Jackson), but I love and respect him a lot," the 'Disco Dancer' star said.
