Don’t have any regrets about my film choices, says Govinda

Mumbai: Actor Govinda, who is gearing for the release of his forthcoming film ‘Rangeela Raja’, says he doesn’t have any regrets about his film choices and that ups and downs are a part of everyone’s life.

Govinda was interacting with media to promote ‘Rangeela Raja’ on Friday in Mumbai.

Till early 2000, Govinda was considered a bankable actor in the film industry but after that, his films started bombing at box-office.

“I don’t have any regrets about my film choices. I always did films based on my gut feeling. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t,” he said.

“I think when you feel pressured by failures then, it’s a sign of weak human being. Experiencing ups and downs is a part of every individual’s life,” said the actor.

“When I started working in this industry, we were very poor and it was tough for us to buy a ticket to watch a film. But god gave me opportunities to work in films and because of that I was able to do some good work. I am thankful to my audience who have supported me over the years,” he said.

“When I quit politics that time, I did films like ‘Kill Dill’, ‘Raavan’ and ‘Happy Ending’. All of them were of different genres. Now again, I started working as a solo hero with my last released film ‘Aa Gaya Hero’,” he said when asked if he would like to experiment in other genres apart from comedy.

After ‘Rangeela Raja’ I have two more films which are lined up for release. So, there is nothing as such that now I have to work in certain genre of film. I am just focusing on doing good work,” he said.

‘Rangeela Raja’ is a comedy film, written and produced by Pahlaj Nihalani, and directed by Sikander Bharti. The film stars Govinda, Shakti Kapoor and Prem Chopra. The film introduces Mishika Chourasia and Anupama Agnihotri.
