Mumbai, Oct 26 (IANS) Actor Govinda says “Rangeela Raja” is typically his brand of film, complete with dances and songs.
Govinda was interacting with the media at the music launch of “Rangeela Raja” along with his co-actors Shakti Kapoor, producer Pahlaj Nihalani and director Sikander Bharti here on Thursday.
Nihalani and Govinda have together given Bollywood films like “Ilzaam”, “Shola Aur Shabnam” and “Aankhen”. The duo is joining forces again after over 25 years for “Rangeela Raja”.
Govinda, who plays a double role in the movie, said: “I started working with Pahlaj sir in ‘Ilzaam’ and after that, we both delivered number of hit films like ‘Shola Aur Shabnam’ and ‘Aankhen’. I am feeling like a newcomer who has started his career. There are lots of surprises in the film.
“I would like to say that it’s a typical Govinda film in which the audience will be able to see dance and songs throughout the film. I feel that this film will touch the heart of the audience because in every household, there are people like Rangeela Raja. We have also tried to give a really nice message through the film.”
Govinda hasn’t been able to deliver a hit film as a solo lead from very long time.
Talking about his struggling period in the Hindi film industry, he said: “I am thankful to Pahlaj sir for giving me the opportunity to work in his film. I hope we would continue our past record of hit films with this one as well.
“Since past 9 years, I wasn’t getting an opportunity to do substantial roles of my choice. I did comedy in ‘Happy Ending’ and in ‘Kill Dil’, I played a negative character. I haven’t got an opportunity to appear as a hero in a film from a very long time. Therefore, I produced ‘Aa Gaya Hero’ but it didn’t do well because of demonetisation at that time.
“My last released film ‘FryDay’ did well. So, I hope that I keep getting success with my upcoming films.”
