Bhumi, Kiara, Shashank and producer Karan Johar also unveiled the first look posters on their respective social media handles. ‘Govinda Naam Mera’ is being written and directed by Shashank, whose film ‘Mr Lele’, on a similar theme, was shelved last year. ‘Govinda Naam Mera’ appears to be a renewed version of ‘Mr Lele’, which was set to star Varun Dhawan in the lead role.
Call me Mrs. Waghmare!😉

Just a few months before ‘Mr Lele’ was shelved last year, Shashank made an announcement in a tweet. He wrote, “Hi Guys, here is an update on Mr. Lele. Karan, Varun and I have mutually decided to postpone the shooting of the film. It’s a script we all love and am sure will revisit soon. But scheduling the film was turning out to be very tough, as the film has a solid ensemble cast and the dates were just not falling into place.” Apart from donning the director’s hat for the upcoming romantic comedy, Shashank will also produce the film with Karan, Hiroo Yash Johar, and Apoorva Mehta.
‘Govinda Naam Mera’ is slated to release on June 10, 2022. Apart from ‘Govinda Naam Mera’, Vicky’s upcoming films include ‘Sam Bahadur’ and ‘The Immortal Ashwatthama’. Bhumi also has films such as ‘Raksha Bandhan’ and ‘Badhaai Do’ in her kitty. Kiara will be seen in ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ and ‘Jug Jugg Jeeyo’.
