It’s well known that Govinda and Salman Khan are good friends. It seems when the former was going through a tough time, the latter was on hand to help and even offered him films. However, it comes as a surprise that Govinda didn’t accept any of the offers his friend put his way.
Recalling those times, Govinda is quoted by Deccan Chronicle, “Salman is like a brother but one of the subjects was slightly arty, our understanding and interpretation of the script was different. He brought a huge signing amount but I wasn’t comfortable taking it because I was not convinced about the project. I needed the money but my heart wouldn’t allow me to take it. I told the director Mahesh Manjrekar that offbeat cinema is for an actor with a terrific and deep understanding of the medium”.
The actor also spoke about friendships in the industry often being without meaning, “There are no permanent friends here. And while I’m craving, I’m not crying, while I’m wanting, I’m not dying, while I’m expecting, I don’t expect anyone to just support me unless they truly believe in me. Right now I’m the one who believes in me. My good times were the result of several people’s prayers and wishes. You need to thank the Universe when things are good and stand your ground when things are not. It’s a karmic cycle”.
Govinda will be making an on screen comeback in ‘Aa Gaya Hero’.
