In a 2017 interview, when Govinda was preparing for the release of his film Aa Gaya Hero, he said that he did not like Karan Johar’s release of Varun Dhawan’s film Badrinath Ki Dulhania, just a week after the release of his film. .
In an interview with Pinkvilla, when Govinda was asked if he will appear on Karan’s talk show Koffee With Karan, he said: “He must have said that. It would be a matter of national respect for him to call Govinda, but he releases Varun’s (Dhawan) film only a week after my film. He shows that he is very humble and innocent, but David (Dhawan) se zyaada jealous and zyaada khatarnak lagta hai (I think Karan Johar is even more jealous and dangerous than David Dhawan).”
“He’s never called me in 30 years, he doesn’t see any actors who aren’t part of his group and doesn’t even say hello, I doubt it. He’s not that kind-hearted. It’s a well-planned and smart move by Karan that he releases his movie a week after mine. Mujhe woh kabhi seedha nahi lagta hai (I never thought he’s nice).” Govinda added.
In 2020, Govinda opened up about his disagreements with David. He said he heard David Dhawan say that the actor “has been questioned a lot” and that “I don’t want to make movies with Govinda.” He also said that David stopped taking his calls after that.
Govinda made his film debut with Love 86, which became a huge hit. On that success, he drew several films. He established himself as a leading star of the 80s and 90s. Many of Govinda’s greatest successes came about in collaboration with David Dhawan, including Raja Babu, Hero No 1 and Partner.
