Every newcomer (despite being a star son or daughter), aspirant or struggler wants to get under the wings of the ‘Khans' to crack in Bollywood! But that's not the case with Mahaakshay (Mimoh) Chakraborty, son of Mithun Chakraborty. He rather believes to make his own mark than to cash in on superstars.
||MAHAAKSHAY CHAKRABORTY AND SALMAN KHAN
Says Mahaakshay “Shah Rukh, Salman & Aamir are the Gods of the industry. Khans, Kumars, Kapoors are the pinnacles of our industry and getting their blessing is a big thing for me. If one of them also comes and gives their blessings then my career is made. But I believe that I need to become Mahaakshay. The struggle is very essential for an actor. If a certain superstar is helping me that is completely grateful but where is Mahaakshay's contribution? Did I grind? Did I suffer? Did I sacrifice? I need to do everything on my own. I believe we all have to fight our own battles. My father also says that you always have to fight your own battle.”
He gets candid further, “When people say that they want to be under the wings of the Khans they all want to be those Khans. But the point is, there is only one Salman Khan. Period! There can never be another great Salman Khan. He is the God today and biggest superstar of the country. I plan to be a better Mahaakshay than to be a better Salman Khan. It is impossible to be in the shoes of such a great man. I can be great in my own self.”

Mithun shares a great rapport with Salman, however, Mahaakshay never capitalized on it. Unlike other newbies, who seek shelter in superstar, Mahaakshay preferred to create his own path.
“Bhai (Salman) has always been there for guidance. He always said that if you need any help I am just a call away. He always says to be humble. Today I have reached a certain place because of my humility and the reason that I have been nice to people. Being a star is destiny but being a nice human being is in your hands and Bhai always tells me that - be a nice human being first and everything else will follow. He treats me like a brother,” Mahaakshay says.
Ask him if he took grooming lessons from Salman, who's known for his fab body & sex appeal, and Mahaakshay says, “I take lessons from everyone. I do look up to him and learning from him right now. But it's not about going and taking classes. It's about observing. An actor always observes.”
Meanwhile Mahaakshay is gearing up for his film ISHQEDARRIYAAN that also stars Evelyn Sharma.
