Superfan Karisma Kapoor would tell parents she wanted to meet Govinda, recalls the prediction he had made for her
Actors Karisma Kapoor and Govinda will make a guest appearance on India's Got Talent Season 9, marking 15 years of their film Hero No 1. On Friday, Sony Entertainment shared a clip from the upcoming episode in which Karisma is seen confessing that before she joined the film industry, she was a big Govinda fan. In another part of the video, Karisma, Govinda and rapper Badshah are seen dancing to the song Husnn Hai Suhaana.

In the video, Karisma is heard saying, “I was a big fan of Chichi ji (Govinda's pet name), just like all of us. I remember when Khudgarz was released..(hums a line from Khudgarz's song Aap Ke Aa Jane Se). I was crazy about that song and I told my mom and dad that I really want to meet Govinda ji. When chichi ji met me, he asked 'Do you want to be an actor?' I said yes, maybe. He said, 'You will be one day'. He has been giving me blessings since then. I never thought that we would work together, dance together. Thank you so much to the audience for all the love.”
Later, Shilpa Shetty, who is one of the judges on the show, asks Badshah to dance with Govinda and Karisma. The trio grooves to Coolie No.1's hit song Husnn Hai Suhaana.
One fan commented on the video, “Both are adorable.” Another one said, “Lovely Govinda.” While one fan said, “Inki jodi kitni sahi thi unn dino mein (Govinda and Karisma used to look so good together onscreen)," another one dropped heart emojis in the comments section.
Govinda and Karisma came to the show on occasion of Hero No.1's silver jubilee. The comedy-drama was released in 1997. After the film's box office success, it was remade in Telugu as Goppinti Alludu.
