Govinda recently shared that he was apparently offered a role in James Cameron’s Avatar back in the day.
Govinda claimed he was offered a role in Cameron’s record-breaking flick which he declined because he “couldn’t commit the time to shoot for 400 days”.
“Also, I can’t stand body paint,” added the actor.
I gave the title of the film (Avatar). It turned out to be a super hit film. I told him (Cameron) that the movie will do really well and that I feel it will take seven years for him to complete the film. He got angry. He asked, ‘How can you be so sure that I won’t be able to make Avatar for seven years?’ I told him that what he was imagining was something almost impossible.”
Yes, we’re intrigued and so was everyone else as the jokes started pouring in on Twitter.
If Govinda was offered the lead role of Avatar my dad was offered the lead role of Sholay and declined it as he did not want to work with @aapkadharam . #Govinda #jhootmatbolo pic.twitter.com/M3wDzWHOes
