Actor-director duo Govinda and David Dhawan, ruled the box office in the ’90s with over 15 back-to-back hits had a public fallout a few years ago.
Govinda had opened up about the same when he appeared on India TV’s show 'Aap Ki Adalat' in 2017 and revealed, "After I left politics, I told my secretary to keep the phone speaker on, so that I could listen what he (David Dhawan) was saying. I heard, David saying, Chi-Chi (Govinda’s nickname) is questioning a lot. He was telling my secretary, I do not want to work with Govinda anymore. Tell him to do some small bit roles. This shocked me and I decided never to work with him."
"After 4-5 months, I again rang him up just to find out if he would give me a guest appearance in his film. He then never rang me back. I am revealing this in public after so many years. I think he is under somebody’s influence. I do not think he is that same David Dhawan whom I used to know," he'd added.
Salman Khan starrer 'Partner', which released in 2007, was their last film together.
