Mithun-Mimoh share screen space


Watching a real-life father-son duo on screen is the ultimate high for a movie buff! Raj Kapoor/Randhir Kapoor [KAL AAJ AUR KAL], Rajendra Kumar/Kumar Gaurav [LOVE STORY], Sunil Dutt/Sanjay Dutt [ROCKY], Dharmendra/Sunny and Bobby Deol [APNE, YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA], Vinod Khanna/Akshaye Khanna [HIMALAY PUTRA], Amitabh Bachchan/Abhishek Bachchan [BUNTY AUR BABLI, SARKAR, KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA, SARKAR RAJ, DELHI 6, PAA]... now add Mithun Chakraborty and son Mimoh aka Mahakshay to this impressive list. Yes, the father-son duo of Mithun Chakraborty and Mimoh are sharing screen space -- for the first time -- in a film titled ENEMMY. That's not all, the film in question is also produced by the Chakrabortys, with Mithun-da's wife Yogita Chakraborty holding the production reins of the film.

Directed by Ashuu Trikha, ENEMMY -- yes, that's how the title of the film is spelt -- is named after the six pivotal characters in the film: Eklavya [Suniel Shetty], Naeem [Kay Kay Menon], Eric [Johny Lever], Madhav [Mimoh], Mukhtar [Zakir Hussain] and Yugandhar [Mithun Chakraborty]. "ENEMMY is about the unholy nexus between the politicians, underworld, police and businessmen," Ashuu enlightens. The film is currently 85% complete.

Ashuu recalls that he never approached Mithun-da with the intent that the veteran would produce this film. "I was keen on casting Mimoh for a significant role. In actual fact, there wasn't a role for Mithun-da initially. But a vital character emerged after several brain-storming sessions with the writer. Later, Mithun-da volunteered to produce the film himself. Looking back, I couldn't have asked for a better producer. Mithun-da is a hands-on producer. He would perform dual responsibilities on the set -- that of an actor as well as a producer -- most effortlessly," Ashuu states.

Besides ENEMMY, which is slated for release in the second half of 2012, Ashuu has one more film slated for release this year -- OH GOD SAARE HAIN FRAUD -- which is based on hacking. This one stars Shreyas Talpade, Mugdha Godse, Johny Lever, Mahesh Manjrekar, Sharat Saxena and Om Puri.
