Bollywood funny man Govinda has always been very clear about his goals and his likes and dislikes. During a recent interaction with a leading daily, he was asked to give his opinion on the current crop of actors. He said that Ranveer is his favourite young star.
“Among the current crop of actors, Ranveer Singh is my favourite. He is the best among the whole lot and is very hard-working. After Akshay Kumar, he is the most hard-working guy in the industry. I feel that he chooses cinema, not films, which is working in his favour. Other youngsters are doing films, which doesn’t work,” he said.
He also criticized the way stars push themselves to get the perfect physique.
“Only the six and eight-pack abs are visible now. Unke chehre toh choose hue aam jaise hai. I am not kidding. Frankly speaking, earlier the faces had glamour. I don’t find any of the actors looking like Dharmendra now. Those who have a good physique have drained out faces, while those with faces don’t have the body. Only Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar are the exceptions,” he added.
Interestingly, the fast rising Varun Dhawan has often been compared to Govinda thanks to his lively onscreen mannerisms. Responding to this, Bollywood’s Hero No 1 said that Varun is similar to Salman Khan.
“No, he has a much better body, he is like Salman Khan. But people are scared to compare him to Salman. I feel that he is inspired by both of us and that shows in his work. There is nothing wrong in that,” Govinda added.
Interestingly honest Govinda sahib.
