When Salman Khan helped Govinda
Zee Media Bureau
Mumbai: Salman Khan’s ‘Being Human’, which is all set to produce its first Bollywood film, will now give a new lease of life to Govinda’s film career.
Many in the film industry would swear by Salman Khan’s friendship. The hunk of an actor is enormously popular as a lion-hearted superstar, who doesn’t think twice before extending help to people.
Govinda, who is known to be a very close friend of Salman, has grabbed the lead role in the project which is said be inspired by a Marathi film titled ‘Shikshanachya Aaicha Gho’ directed by Mahesh Manjrekar.
Here’s what Manjrekar had once said about Salman Khan:
“I don’t think there is a better human being than Salman. He is always there for you, just a call away. I have never seen a more rooted guy than him. He is one of the biggest stars we have, but he has no airs. Though his vanity van is always parked on his set, he is never inside it. He never eats his lunch alone. He gets food from home and ensures that everybody shooting with him eats with him. Whenever I send him a message, he replies in 10 minutes. He is one guy I can call anytime,” a daily quoted the filmmaker as saying.
Reportedly, it was Salman who had recommended Govinda aka Chi Chi for ‘Salaam-E-Ishq’ and ‘Partner’. And going by the latest buzz, the money-spinning superstar will be playing a major role in reshaping Govinda’s career.
The film in question is slated to go on floors this July.
Here’s wishing Govinda, all the very best.
