Bollywood actor, Govinda has not been seen on the big screen for quite some time now, but has managed to make a rather humorous comeback on social media. The actor recently made an appearance on the famous show Aap Ki Adalat, which is hosted by Rajat Sharma. During his time on the show, the Coolie no. 1 actor made some revelations which included Hollywood director David Cameron. What Govind revealed was hard for many to believe and led to a hilarious chain of tweets and memes being shared on the micro-blogging site.
On the show, Govinda revealed that he was offered a role in David Cameron’s movie Avatar and that it was him who had suggested the film’s title to the director as well! While we have no words to describe what we think or feel about this, Twitter seems to be having a field day and has well and truly lost it.
The show is notorious for bringing out the deepest or the lesser-known secrets of actors, or news that never comes out in the open, in the form of revelations. Given that the show’s format is to speak the truth, the confessions made are assumed to be absolutely true. On the show he said, “It was me who had given the title of the movie. I had told (James Cameron) that your film will run successfully in cinemas. I also added that your film will take at least seven years to complete. That infuriated him (laughs)!”
The actor went on to explain the reason behind why he backed out of this film. “I told him that the ‘Avatar’ you want in the film is handicapped. Woh ishwar ka ansh hai aur apang hai…maine kaha ki yeh nahi hoga. And you want me to shoot for some 410 days and colour my body during the shoot. So I apologized for declining and left. And as predicted by me, the film released 8 or 9 years later and was a super-hit!” he said.
Govinda’s revelation gave rise to some of the most hilarious memes and tweets which have been circulating on social media ever since his interview.
