Furthermore, the actor shared how frustrated he felt post after rejecting so many lucrative film offers. He stated, “I was slapping myself in front of the mirror because I was not signing any projects. They were offering a lot of money but I didn’t want to do any random roles. I want something that I’ve done in the past. Something of that level.”

Govinda on accusations of being ‘unprofessional’

In an interview earlier, Govinda had addressed the frequent allegations on him about behaving unprofessionally in the industry.
