"At the time when (K.C.) Bokadia sahab was selecting the heroine for the film, he told me that he would be finalising Priyanka Chopra and asked me how is the idea. I said she will be a top actress. And today she is one of the top actresses of Bollywood. May God bless her," the 49-year-old said here on Monday in an interview.
With Deewana Main Deewana, Govinda will break away from his image of a comic actor. However, he is not worried about it at all.
"People have not the seen the kind of cinema which I used to do for a long time now. The young generation knows only that much about my cinema which they have been seeing on television. So I don't think this image thing will create any problem for the film," he said.
Deewana Main Deewana, releasing on Friday, also features Kader Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Prem Chopra and Johnny Lever.
