Farah Khan, the choreographer and filmmaker, has revealed why she has never worked with Govinda during her recent appearance on Zee Comedy Show’s Laughing Buddha. During the conversation she also spoke about how the dance steps for Om Shanti Om’s Deewangi Deewangi happened.
In the show, Farah Khan spoke about why she hasn’t choreographed Govinda to date even though she has got many offers. She said “Today, my life feels complete. After 30 years, I’ve danced with Govinda, and I want to tell you all a secret today. Govinda is my childhood friend, but I’ve never choreographed him till date even though I’ve got many offers to do it. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to work with him, but for me Chi Chi is the best dancer ever in the Hindi film industry, so I didn’t feel I was worthy or capable of choreographing him. His jodi with Ganesh Acharya was so good that I felt if I choreographed him, it will be proven that I am not good enough to choreograph him”.
Farah also talked about how the choreography for the song ‘Deewangi Deewangi’ in the film ‘Om Shanti Om’ took place. She told “In fact, even when he came to shoot for Om Shanti Om’s Deewangi Deewangi song, I didn’t have the courage to choreograph him. Hence, I told Govinda to choreograph Shah Rukh Khan for his portion, telling them that we’ll keep those steps. They did the Bade Miyan Chote Miyan in the end and it came out so well. So, whenever we dance, Govinda will have to choreograph me, like how he did today”.
