With his previous films, he may have made you laugh till your sides hurt. But Govinda is all set to undergo a transformation, as he gets ready to play villain in a film for the first time.
Sources say the film in question is Aditya Chopra’s Kill Dil, where Govinda will be making his comeback as an actor.
A source from the production unit says, “Govinda has played all kinds of roles but never played a villain before in his entire career. He might have done a character with grey shades in a one odd film like Shikari but this will be his first out and out negative role. Earlier too he was to do another YRF film, which did not work out.”
In his career spanning nearly three decades, the actor has never worked with Yash Chopra’s banner before. This film helmed by Shaad Ali will be his first.
Says Govinda, “It has been 29 years in the industry and this film will release next year as I complete 30 years. It is more of a realistic character than a totally negative role. In today’s world, we see all kinds of people who have grey shades. However, one can’t compare this film to Shikari, as that was a tragic film while this is not.”
The spokesperson from the production banner adds, “Yes, Govinda is doing a pivotal role in the film.”
