Over promotions are not required for films: Mithun

Mumbai: Veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty, who has spent more than three decades in the film industry feels that movie promotions should not go over the top.

"Promotions are required but over promotions are not required. It is necessary to tell people that a film is coming. In our times we used to say that so-and-so film is coming through posters and today through you all (media), things have become quicker and faster. I feel doing everything over is not done," Mithun said.

He would be seen next in Sajid Khan`s multi-starrer comedy film, `Housefull 2` alongside Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Boman Irani, Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Riteish Deshmukh, Shreyas Talpade, Asin, Jacqueline Fernandez, Zarine Khan, Shazahn Padamsee.

For this film, the 61-year-old has teamed up with both the younger and older lot of actors and he says, "I feel younger generation is energetic, I am in the middle, Rishi, Randhir ji come first, then I come in. But whatever it be we all enjoyed a lot while filming the movie. It is a fun film."

The film is up for release on April 5. The senior actor has worked across all genres be it drama or action or comedy all through his career span of 36 years, and has planned nothing fresh.

"I haven`t thought of what I would do next. You are an actor and you have to do everything, as an actor you should not think about genre. Whatever I do, I give more than 100 percent," he said.

"I finished one Bengali film. Then this year I have this film (Housefull 2) coming up and I am hearing some scripts but nothing finalised yet," he added. .

Mithun Da, as he is fondly called, made his acting debut with art house drama `Mrigayaa` (1976), for which he won his first National Film Award for Best Actor. Then he went on to deliver many hit films including `Do Anjaane`, `Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan`, `Hamara Sansar`, `Amar Deep`, and `Surakshaa`.

Lately, he has been part of films like `Guru`, `Heroes`, `Veer` `Golmaal 3` and others.
