Govinda: 'When I quit politics, Salman stood by me'


Mumbai, June 8 -- Buzz has been that all's not well between Salman Khan and Govinda in recent times. Here, Govinda clears the air where such talks have come from. They have a very solid chacha-bhatijee (uncle-niece) relationship.

We have known each other from the time we started our careers. When I came out of politics, I was in a dire situation but Salman was the one who stood by me. I was under a lot of debt too and he was a huge support. Whatever he did was with a lot of respect. That's why I feel bad when such things are written without any reason. I make sure that our relationship isn't damaged or tarnished. I overlook such reports. If a person has stood by me during tough times, it's more than enough. Then, I can never forget his deeds. And Salman has been with me for eight to nine years now. That's why I praise him a lot. There is a film which I had turned down before, but he has got the story reworked multiple times for me. I met him and discussed the script. But let them [the film's team] make an official announcement.
