Govinda was recently trolled for his ingestable statement on a news channel. He said that he suggested the title Avatar to the Hollywood director James Cameron. His statement did not go down well with netizens and they brutally trolled him for it.
Now his another statement from the same show has surfaced where he can be seen claiming that James even offered him a role, that too the main role, in Avatar but he declined. In an interview by journalist Rajat Sharma, Govinda said that he was offered the main role in 2009 blockbuster film Avatar.
Citing the reason behind his rejection he said that the director wanted him to shoot for 410 days and he was also against body painting. Govinda said, “I gave the title Avatar. It went to become a super hit film and I told him (Cameron) that ‘your film will do really well. Your film will take 7 years and it can’t be completed before that.’ He came angry and asked ‘how could you say that?’ I told him ‘the film you are planning to make is next to the impossible project’.”
And as expected, as soon as the video went on air, people started laughing at the actor and twitterians trolled for shooting his mouth off. Here are some hilarious reactions from Twitter users.
Director #SamRaimi first offered the role of #Spiderman to #Govinda, but he rejected as the role needed him to swing from one building to other in #NewYork, which was not that pleasing. He chose to act in #BadeMiyaChhoteMiya
