Govinda, who has been keeping a distance from the spotlight, recently appeared in Rajat Sharma’s show – ‘Aap Ki Adalat’. The actor spilled the beans on several controversial questions. Govinda also grabbed the attention of the nation after making a shocking revelation on his fallout with filmmaker David Dhawan.

Actor and filmmaker duo – Govinda and David Dhawan – are known for delivering box-office hits such as ‘Coolie No.1’ and ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ to name a few. Both have worked together for about seventeen films. All of them went on to bag many accolades from the audience. During a recent interview with India TV, when Govinda was asked about the fallout with David Dhawan, the actor revealed that he was not on speaking terms with David for the last few years.

He said, “He can ask me this question only when his son –Varun Dhawan makes 17 films with him. I do not think his son will ever do 17 films with him. Because he is David Dhawan’s son. He is educated. I never realized the meaning of doing 17 films with a single director. It was Sanjay Dutt back then, who told me to offer work to a fellow Punjabi – David Dhawan. Back then, I used to support a lot of Punjabis. And I liked David, thus did many hit films with the filmmaker. The way I have treated David, I didn’t even treat my family members the same way. My brother, who is even a director, I didn’t do 17 films with him. It was really something to do these number of films with David.”

While revealing about the fallout with the filmmaker, Govinda said, “When I left politics, I had asked my secretary to keep the phone speaker on, because I wanted to listen what David would say. I was shocked to listen, David saying that Chi-Chi (Govinda’s nickname) is apparently questioning a lot. He informed my secretary that he (David) didn’t want to work with me any further. Not just that, he also suggested me to do some small roles in films. This was really shocking for me and I decided not to work with him ever again.”

Even though, after 4-5 months, I called him up just to find out if he would give me a guest appearance in one of his films. He didn’t revert back. I do not think he is that same David Dhawan whom once I knew,” Govinda said while concluding.
