Govinda was Ganesh's first choice for SWAMI
Abid, Bollywood Trade News Network
Actor-MP Govinda was the first choice for ace choregrapher Ganesh Acharya's debut film as a director, SWAMI. However Govinda turned down the offer saying that after movies like RADHA KA SANGAM and NASEEB, he had stopped doing serious stuff. Ganesh then turned to Manoj Bajpai, who agreed to act opposite Juhi Chawla in the critically acclaimed movie.
While there may be debates about how SWAMI would have fared had Govinda been a part of it, Ganesh must be credited for his choice of newfind Maninder, who essayed the role of the ideal son 'Adarsh' with aplomb. Maninder, who got praise for his histrionics in SWAMI (from almost every critic), is an actor to watch out for.
