Actor-politician Govinda has expressed his unwillingness to contest from Mumbai North Lok Sabha constituency, Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan said in Mumbai on Sunday.

"Govinda, like other sitting MPs, was asked if he was willing to contest again in the Lok Sabha polls, but he declined the offer," Chavan told reporters at State Congress party office in central Mumbai.

Chavan said actress Nagma has showed readiness to contest from the seat. "She (Nagma) is one of the applicants for Congress ticket from this constituency," he added.

Govinda had won from Mumbai North constituency in the 2004 Lok Sabha elections, defeating BJP's Ram Naik.
