There have been numerous cases of Bollywood actors being threatened by underworld men. Many big names in the glamorous world are present on this list. But today we are going to talk about an incident where Dawood Ibrahim threatened Mithun Chakraborty, and the reason was Mandakini. But did you know that it was Sanjay Dutt who finally came to his rescue?
Mithun, who was at the peak of his career in the 80s, had many projects in his kitty. His on-screen chemistry with Mandakini was appreciated by many, and fans wanted to see this Jodi more on-screen. These two actors worked together in several films, and eventually rumors about their relationship began to surface on the internet. This happened at the same time the actress was reported to be in a relationship with Dawood.
According to several reports, Mithun Chakraborty and Mandakini are in a relationship. It apparently didn’t go well with Dawood Ibrahim, who seemed head over heels in love with the controversial actress. Even though the two actors ignored these rumors, the underworld did not seem to have believed them.
The next step taken by Dawood Ibrahim was to send his men to threaten Mithun Chakraborty. The star actor began to receive continuous phone calls from the house, claiming to be the men of the underworld. He even received several death threats. Fearing the escalation of events, he rushed to his friend Sanjay Dutt for help.
Sanjay, who had openly admitted to having friends in the underworld, made a few phone calls and saved Mithun from trouble.
Sanjay Dutt advised Mithun Chakraborty to stop working with Mandakini, after which we never saw the two in movies together.
