Govinda To Play Alia Bhatt’s Dad In Shaandar
Veteran actors like Govinda never fails to surprise his fans. After making a brilliant appearance in ‘Holiday’, the actor will be again seen in two more films, ‘Kill Dil’ and ‘Jagga Jasoos’. Now, it seems that the actor is about to embark on a new role in his acting career. According to reports, it seems that Govinda is fast becoming the go-to guy to play onscreen fathers. The actor, who is playing Ranbir Kapoor’s father in Anurag Basu’s ‘Jagga Jasoos’, will soon begin shooting for Vikas Bahl’s ‘Shaandar’, in which he will be seen playing the role of a father to leading lady Alia Bhatt.
A source close to the production reveals, “It’s a comic role though not a large one. But Govinda responded positively to the script. He is perfect for the part and is quite excited about it as well. He’s ready to play a father now because he knows that he cannot play, or get the romantic roles he did during the 90′s”.
‘Shaandar’ will be Vikas Bahl’s third film after the much acclaimed films like ‘Chillar Party’ (he won the prestigious National Film Awards twice for this movie – Best co screen writer and co director) and ‘Queen’. The movie ‘Shandaar’ is all set to be shot extensively in Europe too. Vikas, who is currently on a recce for the film, couldn’t be reached for a comment. However, Govinda confirms the news and says, “I’ve received a narration. It would be unprofessional to divulge any details at this point.”
