Govinda to romance 18 year old!
In Bollywood, apparently no age is too young or too old for actors, which is why we’re soon going to see Govinda romancing an 18-year-old newcomer, Raika (who apparently has no surname)! It is a little disturbing to imagine that this decision was taken by famous filmmaker Pahlaj Nihalani who has given Govinda some of the biggest hits of his career like ‘Shola Aur Shabnam’ and ‘Ankhen’. Their hit jodi was as good as that of David Dhawan and Govinda. But just trying to imagine a 50-odd-year-old Govinda grooving to another song which makes no sense, with this teenager is repulsive!
“This borders on creepy; it’s quite difficult to be all right with Govinda romancing someone who is younger than his own daughter! I think the actors in Bollywood should have some moral responsibility towards who they work with because these kind of deals are exactly why they are accused of being sleazy!” shares an industry insider.
Nihalani’s film also stars Sunny Deol, who is also in his 50s! One did not expect this from a respectable director who has launched people like Neelam Kothari and the late Divya Bharti.
Raika is also supposed to have a tantalising swimsuit scene in the movie. Is it really surprising at this juncture?
