Gunday star Ranveer Singh, who is a huge fan of veteran actor Govinda, pays tribute to the great actor at a recent award show. Ranveer has often copied his style in songs and performances.
Govinda says he is grateful to such young actor who feels his inimitable dancing style is worth being imitated. Ranveer is getting a chance to match steps with Govinda in Kill Dill.
In fact, Ranveer even paid a tribute to Govinda’s dancing skills in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, as well as at an awards function.
“Yes, I saw Ranveer in the song Ishqyaun Dhishqyaun in Ram-Leela. He was in full form. I am grateful to the younger actors who think my style is worthy of being copied,” said Govinda, Showering praise on the younger talent.
The two will be seen sharing screen space with a great bonding on the sets of Shaad Ali’s Kill Dill.
A source close to the film, said; “Shaad now plans to incorporate a full-on Govinda-Ranveer dance number where the fan will try to match steps with his idol.”
Meanwhile, Govinda has lately lost a lot of weight to look convincing as Ranbir Kapoor’s father in Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos.
The versatile actor is excited about his first villain’s role in Kill Dill.
“It’s my first full-fledged negative role. I had played a negative part in N Chandra’s Shikari years ago. Times have now changed. Back then there was a past history for my character’s dark deeds. Now in Kill Dill, my character is the way he is because he chooses to be,” he said.
