Govinda’s New CRED Ad: Here’s Why the Dancing Superstar Said Yes
Dancing superstar Govinda started trending today after his CRED ad became a topic of hot discussion on Twitter. Apart from Govinda, many other B-town celebrities like Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor, Alka Yagnik, Kumar Sanu, Daler Mehendi, and Bappi Lahiri have been a part of his promotional campaign.
However, Govinda doing the ad became quite a sensation because it shows that in the end, the actor fails to clear the audition. This triggered hilarious reactions on Twitter. Some even debated that the entire campaign is quite stupid.
A user wrote, “Guys, Govinda has tested positive, positive for entertaining everyone.”

Didn't know Govinda can dance equally well without Ravina Tondon as well. https://t.co/9OCO80GZC2

A Twitter user thought that all these ads were stupid. He wrote, “Am I the only one who is finding this @CRED_club ad including Bappi Lahiri, Madhuri, Anil Kapoor, Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan, Govinda, etc stupid?”

Govinda Reveals Why He Said Yes For Doing Ad for CRED
The ad campaign shows famous people auditioning in front of a three-member jury but fails to make it. The campaign started in September along with the Dream11 IPL In this ad, you can see Govinda dancing energetically in his usual vibrant style.
In the end, he calls someone and asks for the voice-over guy. While most of his fans are happy to see him grooving to beats, journalist Sonal Kalra had an entirely different opinion.
In her Twitter post, she wrote, “Cred ads? The concept of the new-gen not getting melodrama of oldies makes sense. But more n more, it’s making fun of ppl iconic. Govinda, Bappi, Alka, Udit, Madhuri, Anil – they have done the ad for money. Are u ok bein made fun of for what u thought was super cool at ur time? Thoughts?”

But Govinda seems to have answered Sonal’s question. While talking to Times of India about his appearance in the CRED ad the Chote Miyan of Bollywood said, “Charlie Chaplin made fun of himself all his life and I admire that. I remember he said that failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself. When I was approached for that ad, I liked the concept that a superstar doesn’t clear an audition! (Laughs). I loved that concept. The parting line where I say, “Voice-over Waley ka number nikaal” was improvised. I added that.”
On dancing after six years, Govinda said, “I love dancing and it’s great to be back.”
