The Jim Carry of India, who ruled the hearts of millions in the 90’s is known for his impeccable comic timing and loud gestures.
Right from Love 86 to the very recent Kill Dil and Happy Ending, Govinda is still overshadowing his co-actors and giving them a run for their money.
One cannot forget films like Aankhen, Raja Babu, Coolie No. 1, Hero No. 1, Partner and many more such laugh riots where he teamed up with director David Dhawan. Starting from Taaqatwar in 1989, the actor has worked with David Dhawan for an astounding seventeen movies.
Apart from David Dhawan, Govinda gave us some memorable films with actors like Raveena Tandon, Karisma Kapoor, Kader Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Aruna Irani, Satish Kaushik and Johnny Lever.
He has the ability to make the most stupid situations look intellectual and the most insane dialogues sound sane.
Govinda took a sabbatical of sorts in the year 2002, during which, he entered politics. He had joined the Congress and was elected as an MP for the Mumbai North Constituency of Maharashtra, in the Lok Sabha elections in 2004, after defeating Ram Naik of the BJP.
However, his stint as a politician wasn’t too successful and Govinda returned to acting. In 2006, he was seen in Bhagam Bhaag alongside Akshay Kumar but the film did little for his sagging career.
The dancing superstar then teamed up with Salman Khan and made a smashing return to the big screen with Partner wherein he was paired opposite Katrina Kaif.
After this comic venture, the actor was seen in Life Partner which again failed at the Box Office and Govinda vanished from the limelight.
This year, he made a comeback Kill Dil and Happy Ending. Even though both his films did not do well at the Box Office, the actor received appreciation from all quarters. He is as entertaining today as he was fifteen years ago.
Here’s wishing the King Of Comedy, Govinda, a very happy birthday and hope he continues to entertain us for many more years to come!
