A couple of days back, Govinda left everybody shell-stunned when he guaranteed that he was offered James Cameron’s notable film, ‘Avatar’, however he dismissed it since he needed to utilize body paint for his job. Before long, the online life was loaded up with amusing images and trolls on the entertainer’s stunning disclosures.
In his most recent meeting with Bombay Times, the on-screen character lashed out at the jokes and interesting images made to his detriment and said that individuals may trust or not trust him.
Govinda Says It’s Off-base Of Individuals To Uncertainty How He Got Offered The Film
Talking with a leading daily, the performer expressed, ‘I am fine with people wondering how someone like Govinda could refuse a James Cameron film. I can understand where they are coming from. I respect that thought. They are entitled to have that opinion, but to say how come Govinda got that offer in the first place, is wrong. It’s not like meri aukad nahi hai. It’s prejudiced behaviour. Chai wala aagey kaise badh sakta hain? TV actors films mein kaise aa sakte hain? This is that same elitist, superiority complex. Yeh galat hai. Aapko vishwas nahi karna hai toh mat kijiye, but don’t say things like this.’
James Cameron Must have Seen My Movies: Govinda On How The Film Offer Came To Him
‘I was a superstar then. He must have seen my films, but I am not too sure about that. There was a sardarji, who knew me well, and belonged to the medical world. He was my senior, and Dev sahab’s (Dev Anand) friend. He was also one of the financers of the film (Avatar). James Cameron and he met me in London, where I was narrated the story of Avatar. In a way, while I was talking to him, I suggested the title to him. Mere muh se woh shabd (Avatar) nikal gaya aur unhone pakad liya.’
We Don’t Have a clue How To Respond To This!
He further included, ‘However, I refused the film. The sardarji even complained to Dev sahab that I had refused this big Hollywood film despite the massive money that I was offered for it. Dev sahab even called me and asked about it.’
Govinda Uncovers The Motivation behind why He Dismissed ‘Avatar’
‘When I heard the subject, I thought I won’t be able to match up to the physicality required to essay that character, that needed to be covered in body paint for over 400 days (Australian actor Sam Worthington played the role of Jake Sully, a disabled former Marine in Avatar, the part which was offered to Govinda). Iraada accha tha, but uss process ko sehne ki kshamata mujh mein nahi thi.’
This Is The reason He Spoke About Turning Down ‘Avatar’ After Such a significant number of Years
‘How is that no one wondered why Govinda was asked this question on that show? I did not tell the anchor (of the television show) about it before the show at all. He must have heard about it from someone. In fact, I was shocked when I was asked about it. I couldn’t have avoided the question, so I gave an answer, and whatever I said, is the truth. Jo sach hai, woh bola. Maybe people thought yeh uss layak nahi hai. Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, Taal, Devdas, Nayak, Chandni and Slumdog Millionaire… I have declined all these films, too. Why just Avatar, kya baaki films achhe filmmakers ne nahi banayi? All these films turned out to be huge hits.’
