Mithun Mania

Mithun’s  magic is potent enough to draw scores of people from across the country to Mumbai. This was proved at the auditions of the show Dance India Dance recently.  Mintu Melbia, a dhobi from Indore who traveled all the way to Mumbai just to touch Mithun’s feet on national television. Mintu Melbia came up on stage and confessed, “Everybody said I’ll never get a chance to meet my icon. In fact, some time back a girl rejected my marriage proposal saying I’m a nobody. I told her that a day will come when you see me on television with my idol Mithun da and you will regret having rejected me.” Talk about dreams coming true, eh Mintu!
