Bachchan Jr celebrates Mithun Da’s B’day on Dance India Dance Li’l Masters

Abhishek Bachchan celebrates Mithun Da's 63rd birthday on DID Lil Masters-2. The cute kids on Zee TV’s DID Li’l Masters haven’t stopped trembling with fright yet … after all, a visit from the ‘Raavan’ is bound to send shivers down their little spines.

Abhishek landed up on the sets of Zee TV’s immensely popular dance reality show to celebrate his favourite Mithun Da’s 63rd birthday. Ever since he was a child, whenever Dada visited the Bachchan household, little Abhishek would insist that the original ‘Disco Dancer’ teaches him some cool moves from his latest dance hits.
Abhishek would then use those very moves in all the dance competitions he would participate in as a kid. Ever since, the two have shared a great bond. “Mithun Da holds a very special place in my heart right since my childhood and I’m certainly not letting go of this chance to celebrate his birthday.” It was at Bachchan Junior’s request that a giant strawberry cake with the letters ‘GM’ denoting ‘Grand Master’ was rolled up on stage. What followed was a grand celebration with the judges, the skippers and the kids digging into the yummy cake and dancing to Abhishek’s popular dance Hit ‘One Love’.
