Karan Johar is jealous and dangerous, Govinda


In an interview, veteran actor Govinda lashes out at filmmaker Karan Johar, calling him more dangerous and jealous than David Dhawan. Govinda also expressed his disliking for director David Dhawan with whom he has worked in 17 movies and accused him of stealing his script.

Slamming the ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ director, Govinda said hat he is miffed with Karan for his "smart move" to ensure that his comeback film, ‘Aa Gaya Hero’, does not do well.

In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Govinda talked about him coming on Karan's show, "He must have said that it would be a matter of national respect for him if he calls Govinda, but he is releasing Varun's (Dhawan) film just a week after my film. He shows that he's very humble and innocent, but woh mujhe David (Dhawan) se zyaada jealous and zyaada khatarnak lagta hai. (I find him more jealous and more dangerous than David Dhawan)"

Govinda also talked about his bad relationship with David Dhawan.

Govinda opened up on his tiff with David in an interview with Mid-Day. He said, "I did 17 films with him. When I asked David to make the 18th film with me, he took my subject and titled it 'Chashme Baddoor' and cast Rishi Kapoor in it. Then I asked him to put me as a guest appearance. He didn't do that too. After that, I didn't meet him for some years. I kept requesting him to take at least one shot with me so that it could be my 18th film with him. But I don't know what he had in his mind." 

Govinda also talked about how groupism exists in Bollywood. "He (Karan) has never called me in 30 years, he doesn't see actors who are not the part of his group and doesn't even say a hello, I doubt. He's not that kind-hearted. It's a well-planned and smart move by Karan that he's releasing his film a week after mine. Mujhe woh kabhi seedha nahi lagta hai. (I don't find him as straightforward as he projects himself)," he told Pinkvilla.

In the past also Govinda slammed Karan Johar in an interview with The Indian Express, "Karan Johar never called me for any of his interviews. He has called comedians, singers, actors, newcomers and everyone else... You start a Karan Johar show in which Govinda should never be seen. Throw parties in which Govinda should never be seen. Many such things have happened with me," adding, "Bhayankar camps exist here. Inki badi milli bhagat hai (all are in collusion). Bade chalu hai yeh log. (They are very smart)."
