Govinda claims David Dhawan’s ‘Chashme Baddoor’ was his subject

In 2013, David Dhawan had directed a film titled ‘Chashme Baddoor’ which was a remake of 1981 film with the same name. However, Govinda, who has collaborated with David for 17 films, claims that the 2013 release was his subject and the director made the film without him.

When asked him about the reports of his fallout with David, Govinda said, “When I asked David to make the 18th film with me, he took my subject and titled it ‘Chashme Baddoor’ and cast Rishi Kapoor in it. Then I asked him to put me as a guest appearance. He didn’t do that too. After that, I didn’t meet him for some years. I kept requesting him to take at least one shot with me so that it could be my 18th film with him. But I don’t know what he had in his mind.” (Also Read: Govinda to endorse chain of restaurants in UP named ‘Hero No 1’)

David Dhawan’s son, Varun Dhawan is said to be the new-age Govinda. Talking about it, the ‘Hero No 1’ star said, “Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan both have a body like Salman Khan. But they can’t say it. If they call themselves as Salman Khan, then they won’t get films. They can’t afford to be against Khan. This is how the filmy world works.”

He further added, “How can he (Varun) be like me? To become Govinda, he needs to be innocent, uneducated and a poor village boy. Varun is already a son of a director. In the last six years, he hasn’t done more than two films with his father, whereas I did 17 films with his father (David Dhawan).”

Govinda, who was last seen on the big screen in 2014 release ‘Kill Dil’, is all set for a comeback with the film ‘Aa Gaya Hero’ which is slated to hit the screens on March 3.
