Actor Govinda, whose much-delayed film, Deewana Main Deewana, released recently, says he always knew his co-star Priyanka Chopra would go on to become a top actor.

“When KC Bokadia (director) was selecting the film’s heroine, he told me that he’d be taking Priyanka Chopra and asked me about her. I told him that she will be a top actress. And, today she is one of the top actresses of Bollywood. May God bless her,” says the 49-year-old.

With this film, Govinda will break away from his image of a comic actor. “People have not seen the kind of cinema which I used to do for a long time now. The young generation knows only that much about my cinema which they have been seeing on TV. So I don’t think this image thing will create any problem for the film,” he says.
