Govinda is one Bollywood actor who can leave Aamir Khan in splits.
Khan, who has been a part of cult comedy hit Andaaz Apna Apna, says Govinda has a great comic timing.
"My favourite actor is Govinda. He can really make me laugh. I just love his films," he told PTI.
"Govinda is one actor who really entertains me. He has got a great comic timing and he is a fine actor," said Khan, who was here to promote his next release Peepli Live.
Among many films starring Govinda, one that Khan has seen a dozen times is Sandwich.
"I have seen his film Sandwich some 10 or 12 times," Khan said.Directed by Anees Bazmee Sandwich starred Govinda alongwith Raveena Tondon and Mahima Chaudhary and was released in 2006.
Without mentioning names of his contemporaries like Shah Rukh and Salman Khan, the actor said he does not like being compared with anyone.
"I m not comparing myself with anyone. I think they are all very successful and popular and doing films that have received a lot of viewership and have entertained a lot of people including me," the 45-year-old star said.
Asked if his recent films like Taare Zameen Par, 3 Idiots and Peepli Live are a step towards parallel cinema, Khan said he did not see cinema in commercial and parallel terms.
"For me its a mass media and I only do films that excite me. It should be economically viable and people investing money should not lose."
