When Govinda left 25 films for Dilip Kumar; the reason will leave you stunned

Govinda is one actor who has seen failure at its peak and same is for the success. The actor who has a whole dance form name behind him recalls the time when young actors in Bollywood used to follow and admire their senior actors that are majorly missing in today’s time.

It’s a known fact that Govinda is a huge admirer of veteran actor Dilip Kumar and Dharmendra Sahab’s work. In fact he also kept their pictures in his bedroom when wife Sunita was expecting son Yashvardhan. Now in a recent interview Govinda also revealed that his admiration for Dilip sir was so much that he left 25 films for him when the latter told him to do so.

Speaking about the incident, Govinda said, “Dilip Saab & Dharam Ji are my favourite. I feel blessed to be working with them when I started my career. They helped me a lot. Dilip Saab asked me to leave 25 films that I had already signed. He told me that you’ve acted in a lot of films. I said that I had already taken and used the money I had got from those films (laughs). He then asked me to borrow money from somewhere & return it to the people. So I eventually left those films.”

Govinda often considers Dilip Sahab as his Guru in acting. Well this is definitely the biggest Guru Dakshana any student can give to his teacher.
