Former CBFC (Central Board Of Film Certification) chief, Pahlaj Nihalani, who has been a film producer as well, is all set to turn director. And his directorial debut will be none other than a biopic on the Kingfisher founder, Vijay Mallya, titled Rangeela Raja. And Govinda is likely to portray the titular role. Now that comes as news!
If you remember, Govinda’s film, Money Hai Toh Honey Hai, had a spoof on Mallya and now a decade later, he himself is all set to don the role, that’s what we call irony! Nihalani, who has produced Shola Aur Shabnam and Aankhein, both Govinda starrers, is now directing him. The makers have already shot a song for the film.
When asked about the same and what we can expect from Govinda’s role, this is what he said, “The entire look, feel, appearance and rhythm of the song sequence is based on the Kingfisher calendars. As for Govinda playing who you say he is playing, let’s just keep the suspense going. I am neither denying nor admitting it. A lot of people asked me who Govinda is playing. All I can say at this point of time is that Govinda plays a man who is the biggest scamster of our times. Need I say more?”
The film is slated for an August release.
