Whenever we talk about the dirtiest songs in Bollywood, Raja Babu’s Sarkai Lo Khatiya with Govinda and Karisma Kapoor never fails. In 1994, this song was both a hit parade and controversial. While the masses loved, the intellectuals criticized the lyrics.
But do you know, Govinda returned it to critics in the classic way through his other chartbuster? Yes, we’re talking about Main To Raste Se Ja Raha Tha from Coolie No 1 (1995). Both films had Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in mind and were directed by David Dhawan. So when Sarkaai Lo Khatiya was criticized by many, the team responded in their style by including some special lines in the CN1 song.
The lines we are talking about are:
Maine jo sarkaai khatiya, toh aapko laga bada ghatiya
Lekin maine kisi ko, buri nazron se dekha nahi
Logo Maine Bemaut Ko Maara Nahi
Kisi started ah ke dil mein, bewajah khanjar utara nahi
Duniya ke circus ka, principal toh ek joker hu
Nachata hu gaata hu, aapka dil behlata hu
Ho tujhe naachan na aaya toh, principal kya karun …
Isn’t that interesting?
Meanwhile, Coolie No 1 was remade by David Dhawan and released last year. Starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan, the film was released direct on Amazon Prime Video but did not receive the kind of love 1995 received from audiences.
Recently, during a conversation with YOU, Govinda spoke about the remake of Coolie No 1 and reacted to whether it was a mistake to make this movie or not. He said, “You will never see me speak against others. While others often like to talk about me, I never talk about or judge their work because I respect everyone’s hard work and the money invested. Over the past 14-15 years I have invested money and lost around 16 crore rupees. I was also mistreated by some people in the fellowship. My films weren’t released in theaters and they wanted to demolish my career, which didn’t happen. Now I am ready to kick off 2021 in a big way. “
