Govinda never got his due recognition, says Rohit Shetty 

Back in the 90s, Govinda was one of the most popular actors of Bollywood. He had delivered several iconic comedic performances in his career before he faded away from the big screen. During a recent promotional event for his upcoming film 'Cirkus', filmmaker Rohit Shetty stated that Govinda never got his due recognition and that he should be considered the biggest superstar of Bollywood.

Rohit told Pinkvilla, "For 10 years that guy (Govinda) gave blockbusters. He and David Dhawan–like Shola Aur Shabnam, Aankhen, Raja Babu, Jodi No 1, Coolie No 1, and Haseena Maan Jaayegi, that was back-to-back. I think he didn’t get his due otherwise he would have been the biggest superstar. Ab social media hai, ek chalti hai toh sab chilate hai. Back-to-back for ten years both (Govinda and David Dhawan) had given hits.”

In an earlier conversation with Maniesh Paul, Govinda had talked about how his career failed to sustain longer. He had stated, "When you’re successful, there are many who’ll try to pull you down,” he had said, adding that his filmography speaks for itself. He said, “When I was at the peak for 14-15 years, when everything was going in my favour, nobody raised these issues… This is the film industry, people change with time, and so do equations.”

Talking about 'Cirkus', the film stars Ranveer Singh and Pooja Hegde in lead and it is set to release on 23rd of December.
