Raaz of ‘Raja Babu’

Country’s comedy-star and most loved actor Govinda, popularly known as ‘ChiChi’ was in the Pink City to attend a talk show. Meanwhile, City First got in touch with him for an exclusive interview, and he spoke about his journey in the industry till now and what keeps him going with so much energy and positivity.

Talking about his journey, he said, “My first movie released in 1986, and that’s where it all began. I’ve had many ups and downs, but I think that is something that has made me the person I am today. I believe that there is hard work in every field, but I also believe that luck plays a major role- and I feel that I have been lucky to have received so much love from everyone during my journey till now.” The star had also entered the political industry between 2004-09, but realised that he was not “meant to be where he was.”

After his nephew Krushna Abhishek, his daughter Tina Ahuja is a part of this industry too, with her first music video ‘Milo Na Tum’ that went live in September. As there is a lot of struggle in the Bollywood industry, Govinda must have definitely given his daughter a few tips to handle this pressure. Talking further about this, he mentioned, “Honestly, there are struggles in every field you look at. Everyone must know how they are supposed to deal with situations that are put on to them in life, and that is something which would teach them a lot many things. But I think that all of us have been blessed with great luck, and Tina is definitely going to give the best that she can in everything she gets.”

Govinda is always known for his iconic comic roles, but he has also been a part of a few intense roles, like in the film ‘Kill Dill’. Talking about this, he stated, “There is this particular perception that everyone has about me. Yes, I enjoy doing comedy and I think that is what people know me for, but change is always good. I love doing what I do, and always put my hundred percent in it. But again, comedy is something that people expect from me.” Govinda also mentioned that his mother Nirmala Devi started her singing career from Rajasthan, and says that “Rajasthan has been a blessing to the family.”
