"My son is a better dancer than me. I always try to encourage him in his endeavours," Mithun told reporters here at a promotion for his forthcoming flick "Enemmy".
Sharing screen space with his son in the forthcoming action thriller, he will be seen as a senior CBI officer, with Mahaakshay portraying young CID recruit.
However, son Mahaakshay contradicted his father, averring that there can be "only one original disco dancer".
"I believe that there is only one original disco dancer, and I think that is my dad. But I have tried my best to do a different kind of dance theme here. I have danced with my father in a promotional song in the film and I hope the audience will like it," said Mahaakshay.
Mithun, who doubles as grandmaster or 'Maha Guru' (MG) in the hit TV reality show 'Dance India Dance', likened late popstar Michael Jackson (MJ) as 'god' and said it was unfair to compare him with MJ.
"I don't think I can be compared to MJ in any way. He is god and I am MG, and I can't dance like MJ," said Chakraborty.
