While promoting his film Aa Gaya Hero, Govinda has been making shocking statements about people he was associated with. He lambasted at David Dhawan, Karan Johar and even at Varun Dhawan.
Of late, Govinda commented on Varun, he said:
How can he (Varun) be like me? To become Govinda, he needs to be innocent, uneducated and a poor village boy. Varun is already a son of a director. In the last six years, he hasn’t done more than two films with his father, whereas I did 17 films with his father (David Dhawan).
Recently, in an interview Varun Dhawan reacted to Govinda’s controversial statement against him. He said:
Alochna honi chahiye…Alochan se mein bahut kuch seekhta hoon. Woh kehte hai mujhme aur unmei koi samantaye nahi hai. Yeh sahi hai. Kisi mein samantayein ho bhi nahi sakti. Woh varisht hai, mein unka samman karta hoon. Mein unki barabari kabhi nahi kar sakta.
Earlier, Varun praised Govinda as he said:
Govinda sir has spoilt my dad. As an actor, he has set such high standards that it is extremely difficult to reach up to that level. After having worked with him in numerous blockbusters, my dad kept expecting the same perfection and madness that Govinda ji used to bring to his performances and dance moves. He is a living legend of our industry and nobody can be like him.
