David Dhawan and I will work again: Govinda

Actor Govinda is very excited about getting together with David Dhawan and producer Vashu Bhagnani again and says he will create something thoroughly entertaining.

"We've created quite a sensation in the past with Hero No. 1 and Coolie No. 1. We'll definitely create full entertainment again. Yes, it'll be a comedy. I'll try my level best that we come back with a film that will do justice to all three of us," said Govinda.

Govinda says he owes his comeback to David Dhawan.<b1>

"It's something I learnt from Mr (Amitabh) Bachchan. When he needed to make a comeback, he called Yash Chopra for Mohabbatein. Similarly, when I needed to come back I rang up David and he gave me Partner."

Govinda has no qualms in admitting he was influenced by the Big B.

"Yeah, I copied Mr. Bachchan. I'm not anything like Mr Bachchan, but why shouldn't I copy a man as great as him? If he can reach out to a filmmaker, why can't I? David is such a big man. Today, if he asks me to do another film with him, I don't even need to think about it - I will do it blindly."

Govinda has never been more charged about his career.

"I don't really care what people say about me. All I know is I'm doing my work with sincerity. And I've become very punctual. I reach my sets on time. I'm not here to create any problems for anyone. If I'm doing my work quietly, why are some people troubled by it? But I'm not going to get rattled."

Govinda, who joined politics and earned a lot of flak from colleagues in the party, has no regrets.

"I don't regret anything, not even my entry into politics. I respect politicians because they are doing their jobs very efficiently. But the fame and fortune I've got has come through Mata Saraswati, my art (movies). No one has the right to eye my career and try to ruin it."

Kumar Mangat, producer of Govinda's Money Hai To Honey Hai, added: "A miracle happened during the shooting. We finished Govindaji's work in 60 days when we had reserved 85 days for him. In Mauritius, where we shot most of the film, Govinda was the first of the cast to wake up.

"In fact, he'd wake me up and we'd have our morning tea together. I remember we had to shoot at a discotheque in Mauritius. We had to reach at 8 am. and all we saw were the janitors at work. That's how punctual Govinda has become."

In fact, Mangat is planning another film with Govinda this year.

"He's a pleasure to work with," the producer said
