Rumours of Govinda's reportedly strange behaviour on the sets of Rajnish Thakur's Loot in Bangkok have perturbed the actor, but he refuses to give any clarification saying his forthcoming releases will prove the naysayers wrong.

"All sorts of strange rumours about my behaviour in Bangkok were reported while I was away. I don't know where they came from. All I'll say is let my films, from Money Hai To Honey Hai to Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai to Loot, be released. My mental condition will be made clear," Govinda told IANS.

"It was even reported that I moved out of the hotel that I was staying in with the unit and that I first fed my food to the dogs to make sure it wasn't poisoned. First of all, I stayed in the same hotel throughout with the rest of the unit. As for my meals, yes I did share my food with other members of the unit. So I'd like to know which of them they are calling a dog."

Reports say Govinda was scared of ghosts in Bangkok.

"If I've the guts to take on all kinds of bullying and intimidating from politicians why would I be scared of ghosts?"

The actor, who made a comeback in the hit Partner, is laughing all the way to the bank. News is that he has cut a deal with a corporate house for Rs.80 million.

Actor-producer Suniel Shetty, who is producing Loot, too gives the dancing star a glowing work report.

"Govinda was a delight to work with. Every day without fail he reported at 9 a.m., sometimes much ahead of others, and worked till late in the night to complete our long schedule. In fact, because of Govinda's thorough professionalism we wrapped up shooting five days ahead of schedule," said Suniel.

Suniel is surprised by stories about Govinda's un-professionalism.

"Where did those come from? On the contrary, I'm ready to release Loot ahead of schedule because of Govinda. Earlier, my partners TV18 and I were planning to release the film early next year. Now we're going for a release in August," Suniel said happily.
