Govinda is considered to be one of the finest actors in Bollywood. He is well-known for films like Coolie No 1, Hero No 1, Raja Babu, Dulhe Raja, Partner, Aankhen, Shola Aur Shabnam, Naseeb, Swarg, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan among others. However, he has been away from the big screens for quite some time. But recently, in an interview with the ETimes, Govinda revealed that he was a victim of nepotism during his initial days in the industry and also spoke about his work plans for 2021.

Talking about his work plans for 2021, he said that it’s going to be like those good old days when he worked round the clock. He also said that he has read many scripts and will be signing a few films. He might even produce some of them. “This bad patch of 2020, that has just gone by, has affected not just me but the whole world too. Besides, the year has allowed us to work on different platforms like OTT,” he added.

While Govinda refused to talk about the remake of his hit film Coolie No 1, directed by David Dhawan that starred Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan in lead roles; when asked about the same, he said while others often like to talk about him, he never talks about other’s work or judges it because he respects everybody's hard work and money invested. The actor also revealed that he is planning to give opportunities to the lower strata of aspiring artists, who want to work in this industry with respect and don't want to indulge in unethical things. “I will help them through my company and would like big companies to invest in this project of mine,” Govinda stated. He wants to eliminate the difficulties the aspiring artists have to go through, created by the big names in the industry. 

“I am no longer in the age bracket to struggle again; now is the time for me to give back to people so that they can navigate the present scenario,” the actor added. Talking about Nepotism, Govinda said that what people are saying today, he has been saying that for several years. He further explained that he has been fighting this battle for 20 years and some people have maligned his name but he ignored them.
