Pahlaj Nihalani compares Govinda to Ajay Devgn, as if he knows what Chi Chi's last film made
There’s no doubt that Govinda is one of the most talented actors we have in Bollywood. He ruled the industry in the 90s with his comedy films. But, one cannot ignore the fact that the Hero No 1 has lost his charm. The 54-year-old actor has tried his best to reinvent himself but has failed to do so. Well, he is all set to be back on the big screen with Pahlaj Nihalani’s Rangeela Raja.
According to a report in Mid-day, Nihalani has spent Rs 3 crore on a song in the film that features Govinda. Not just that, he has also went on to compare Govinda to Ajay Devgn. He has stated that if a huge amount of money can be spent on song featuring Ajay Devgn in Total Dhamaal then why not Govinda. While the Haseena Maan Jaayegi actor is known for his amazing dancing skills, Devgn’s dancing skills have always faced criticism.
Well, we agree with Nihalani that Govinda is a better dancer than Ajay Devgn. But, apart from comparing their dancing skills, he should compare their box office collection of their respective films too perhaps? Spending Rs 3 crore for a song on Govinda is surely a risk. His last release Aa Gaya Hero didn’t even collect that much money. Do you know the lifetime collection of the movie? Well, it was Rs 99.75 lakh (according to BOI).
Talking about Ajay Devgn, his last release Raid had collected Rs 98.02 crore (according to BOI). Just putting it out there for you.
Let’s wait and watch what will be the fate of Rangeela Raja at the box office. The movie is said to be based on the life of Vijay Mallya.
