Govinda will always be known as an iconic actor in Bollywood history. Every Bollywood fan would always have their dialogue, songs and movies in mind. There is no other like him, but despite this, the actor has had a difficult phase in his career. For 4 long years, he had no job and had to stay helpless at home. This is our anecdote on Riches To Rags today!
It was 2014 when the megastar returned to Bollywood with Kill Dill. Many continued to wonder where he had gone for over 3-4 years. But in fact, it wasn’t by choice. The actor witnessed a roadblock with the changing times and struggled to find work.
Govinda in a conversation with DNA revealed, “I was not absent. The point is, I haven’t received any offers. For four years, I sat at home doing nothing. Wahaan, I quit politics, yahaan film line ne mujhe chhod diya! No one approached me. When my fans met me at airports or elsewhere, they would ask me why I was doing a Sandhi Sudha soap commercial? I said that since I am not seen anywhere, I have to do something.
During this time, there were also rumors that Govinda did not want to play elderly roles. This mindset turned into an obstacle to his career, which ultimately left him out of work. Responding to the same, the actor said, “Believe me, I haven’t gotten a single offer, not even to play a dad!”
Kill Dill was a game-changer for the partner actor.
“Shaad Ali called me and offered me this naughty role in Kill Dil. I was determined to work, but since the role was negative, I asked my wife Sunita if I should go ahead and she approved. I said yes to this film and after that I signed nine films including Holiday and Happy Ending, in which I have a cameo. When I had enough money, I decided to produce and play in Abhinay Chakra, ”revealed Govinda.
