A month ago, we had spoken about Govinda's plan to re-launch his banner, Govinda Entertainment No 1, and introduce his daughter Narmada. Now we've learnt that the star is going ahead with not one but four movies.

The film with his daughter will be the last one to take off because the actor feels Narmada needs more training. Meanwhile, he'll get cracking on a multi-starrer toplining Sanjay Dutt, Fardeen Khan and himself. The planning for two more lavish ventures is underway.

Playing safe
A source informs that a new director has been zeroed in to direct the Dutt-Khan-Fardeen stareer.

"The idea is to establish the banner first since in the past Govinda has suffered huge losses with Ssukh and Radha Ka Sangam. So this time he wants to play safe," he reasons.

The actor is on the lookout for an established director who can give his beti a flying start. In all probability, a new actor will be cast opposite Narmada.

"But," adds our source, "apart from the two newcomers, the film will have a couple of seasoned stars to enhance the viability of the project".
