In one of Govinda’s iconic entertainer, a renowned name in Bollywood’s family entertainers decided to make a snake travel into Govinda’s dhoti and what happened next is history..
Well we all know that Govinda was a phenomenon during the 90’s. The entertainer no.1 has casted his spell with blockbusters like HERO NO. 1, COOLIE NO. 1, AANKHEN etc.
An actor is handicapped without a writer and the blockbuster writer director Anees Bazmee in an interaction reveals how suddenly during the middle of a shoot of AANKHEN, decided to make a snake enter into Govinda’s dhoti to give his character Gaurishankar the required nuances.
Here is how it happened. “ The scene was decided and we have shot half of it, suddenly in the middle I realized that the innocence of Gaurishankar can be trapped marvelously if something like his can be done right at his entry, giving it more authenticity and understanding the ability of Govinda to pull a difficult comedy scene with great hilarity.
So I decided to make a snake enter into his dhoti, I requested the producer Pahlaj Nihalani and director David Dhawan to hold it and add this ‘snake’ factor.”.
“ They initially where surprised and asked why now, almost half of the scene is done, I convinced them that this will add to the nuances of the character and add more humour, they agreed and the result is known to everyone”. Anees said further.
Govinda pulled it off masterly and Pahlajji and David Dhawan where kind enough to a allow me to experiment” adds Anees who has written blockbusters like DEEWANA MASTANA, RAJA BABU, AANKHEN, SHOLA AUR SHABNAM and his debut as director SWARG for Govinda apart from directing blockbusters like READY, SINGH IS KING, WELCOME, NO ENTRY, DEEWANGEE, PYAAR TO HONA HI THA.
The blockbuster writer director is on the verge of launching a unique initiative for writers and is currently filming PAGALPANTI starring John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Ileana D'Cruz, Kirti Kharbanda, Urvashi Rautela, Arshad Warsi and Pulkit Samrat. Anees Bazmee has also announced the sequel to Akshay Kumar starrer BHOOL BHULAIYAA – BHOOL BHULAIYAA 2 starring Kartik Aryan.
