The name game and Govinda films

The titles of Govinda's films are being changed ever so often. "That is true," laughed Govinda. "My film with Ravi Chopra was called Pappu Paas Ho Gaya. Now it's titled Bandaa Yeh Bindaas Hai."

He said the film had a "fabulous socially relevant subject, questioning the loopholes in our legal system".

"Though serious, the mood is forever light. So the title is just right," Govinda told IANS.

Another Govinda comedy to be directed by Neeraj Vora has undergone a change of name. Earlier entitled Run Bhola Run, the film is christened Lucky 2.

"I think this title suits the mood of the film far better. I enjoy comedies, always have. But I won't call Bandaa Yeh Bindaas Hai or Lucky 2 out-and-out comedies. These are comedies with a strong romantic element. So I'd like to call them romantic comedies. We've just completed Ganesh Acharya's Money Hai To Honey Hai in Mauritius. That again is a comedy but with serious undertones."

Govinda says he hasn't signed anything new at the moment.

There's Dharmesh Darshan's proposed film with Sushmita Sen. They get together again after the Ekta Kapoor fiasco Kyunki Main Jhooth Nahin Bolta.

"I'm no longer that emotional about signing films. I'll only work with big banners who will ensure my films get a proper release," said Govinda. And that's his New Year resolution too.
