Tusshar Kapoor is happy with the presence of Govinda as his co-star in LIFE PARTNER. As per the actor who has proven his flair for comedy in films like GOLMAAL RETURNS and ONE TWO THREE in recent times, Govinda adds as much value to the narrative of LIFE PARTNER as Salman Khan did in NO ENTRY.
"LIFE PARTNER tells the story of two young men played by Fardeen and me. And then there is Govinda who keeps coming in and going out of the scene, just as Salman Khan did in NO ENTRY. While the story revolved around Anil Kapoor and Fardeen Khan, no one could deny the importance of Salman Khan in the film. Same is the case in LIFE PARTNER too where Govinda is such an integral part of the plot", says Tusshar who is also working with Govinda in RUN BHOLA RUN, a comedy.
Talking about the three male protagonists in the film, Tusshar says, "The best of the enterprise is the conflicting view that each of us has around marriage. Fardeen is quite flamboyant and believes in love marriage. He has a girl friend (Genelia D'Souza), is very westernized in appeal, just as he is in real life too, and has a free side to him. We both play best friends in the film."
"While I play someone who believes in an arranged marriage and gets hooked up with Prachi Desai, Govinda doesn't believe in marriage at all. In fact he plays a womanizer. As a divorce lawyer, he keeps advising Fardeen and me against the so-called evils of marriage. He loves putting a spoke in the wheel even though at heart he is still full of 'masti'. Whenever he comes on screen, there is bound to be excitement amongst the audience", details Tusshar.
Directed by Rumi Jaffery and produced by Abbas-Mustan, LIFE PARTNER is an Abbas-Mustan production with music by Pritam. The film is releasing all over on 14th August 2009, the same day as Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra starrer KAMINEY.
