Govinda seeks divine intervention for Narmada

Govinda apparently offered Puja at a temple near Indore as yet another effort to kick start daughter Narmada's Bollywood career

It’s been several years that Govinda’s daughter Narmada has been waiting in the sidelines to have her much-talked-about entry into Bollywood. And now we hear that the actor specially flew to the famous Maheshwar temple, 90 kilometres from Indore, on Tuesday evening, to offer prayers for the success of his daughter and son Harshvardhan. 


Sources say Govinda had earlier booked the puja through the Dayalu Mitra Mandal, a religious organisation in the temple town.

Hemant Jain, president of Dayalu Mitra Mandal of the temple says, “Govindaji wanted to visit the temple for a religious ceremony. He spoke to me through a common friend from Mumbai. In fact he was to come around a month back but he could not make it then.”

However, this time the actor made sure he made it to the temple and a priest by the name of Alok Purohit conducted the puja for him.

Govinda apparently remained at the temple for about 40 minutes and even received a souvenir from them. Jain adds, “He just said that he wants his kids to do well in life. He is a complete family man and is extremely concerned about his family.”

Waiting for too long?
Those close to the actor have often voiced how Govinda has been quite concerned about Narmada’s long wait. Earlier there were even reports that Govinda had a tiff with Salman Khan as the latter was supposed to launch Narmada which did not ultimately materialise.

Later on Narmada was scheduled to make her debut finally with producer Lovely Singh’s Tutak Tutak Tootiya but the film got stuck along the way. Looks like the family is praying hard for the star daughter’s dreams to take off. Let’s wait and watch.
