Govinda’s new work philosophy: Only two films a year.

The uncrowned comedy king has decided to restrict the number of assignments he takes up in such a manner that he’ll have only two releases every year. So what prompted the actor, known for signing films indiscriminately, to do an about-turn?

Says he, "Something somebody once said forced me to rethink about my way of functioning. He asked me, 'How many times does Navratri come in a year?' When I said, 'Twice', he said, 'And how about Shivratri?' Once again, I replied, 'Only once.'

Hearing this, the guy said, 'When even those up there have only one or two occasions in a year for themselves, why do you come six and seven times every year?"

This, says he, influenced his decision to do two films a year!
