Bollywood actor Govinda reveals why he has been absent from the big screen.

Bollywood actor Govinda has made a shocking revelation about turning down projects worth Rs 100 crores last year.

Govinda may not be very active in movies nowadays, but the actor was a huge superstar of Hindi cinema in the ’90s. Govinda has several super hits including Aankhen, Raja Babu, Coolie No. 1, Hero No.1, Dulhe Raja, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan and Partner to his credit. Most recently, the actor opened up about the reason behind his absence from the big screen.

During a media interaction on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, Govinda revealed that he’s become very choosy about the kind of projects he wants to do. “I don’t accept work easily. But the people who think I’m not getting work, I would like to tell them ‘Mujhpe kripa hai Bappa ki’. I have left projects worth Rs 100 crore last year,” he told the media.

The actor continued, “I was slapping myself in front of the mirror because I was not signing any projects. They were offering a lot of money but I didn’t want to do any random roles. I want something that I’ve done in the past. Something of that level.”

Interestingly, Ameesha Patel recently revealed that Gadar 2 director Anil Sharma originally wanted Mamta Kulkarni and Govinda as Sakina and Tara Singh. “I was cast as Sakina by Zee, not Mr. Anil Sharma. For me, Gadar was always about Sunny (Deol). In fact, Mr Nitin Keni was the reason I was in Gadar 1, and Mr Anil Sharma preferred Mamta Kulkarni over me. Anil Sharma wanted Govinda as Tara, but Zee wanted Sunny. So yes, his and my choices are poles apart.”
