If it weren’t for Govinda, 90s Bollywood would’ve been different. The entertainer, who carried the ultimate swag, was the king of comedy in the 90s. He also had the enigma to set the screens on fire with his impeccable dancing or acting. Even the emotional dramas he did, showed why Govinda is not just restricted to comedies. A lot of stuff which he did way back then, can never be recreated onscreen today. Maybe, he was present at the right time and at the right place to make a mark, but for millennials, he will always remain an integral part of their movie watching memories. Govinda has always been the ultimate definition of ‘desi’. He was everything that defined icon of the masses in his heydays.
Govinda ruled an entire decade. Take for instance 1994 when he had 8 releases and one guest appearance. Such was his charisma. Govinda might be trying hard to return to limelight but his fans know that the iconic actor deserves better. And it will only be satiating for them, if Govinda retires gracefully, rather than producing his own films (Aa Gaya Hero).
Govinda has made more news for wrong reasons in the past year, majorly for his standoff with David Dhawan, the man instrumental in making Govinda – the Hero No 1! As the actor tries hard to regain his spot and win back the audience, we as his fans know that what he did in his reigning years, is already a benchmark. As Govinda turns 54 today, we recall all those things that cannot be done today, because nobody has the courage and talent to do that.
