Eat right to look good, says Govinda

New Delhi, July 3 (IANS) Looking good and staying fit is important in showbiz and comic actor Govinda, who made a comeback with "Partner", is currently working hard to get into shape and says it is essential to eat right.

"Yes, I am working on my looks. It is important to change over time and one should not stick to one thing (or a look) for very long," Govinda told IANS.

"I don't eat!" he quipped on being asked what makes him so fit. "I eat less for taste and more to stay fit. Basically, I eat for fitness."

Though he is 44, Govinda's flexibility still matches new-age actors when it comes to dancing.

"People dance for various reasons - emotion, health, curing diseases. I dance for entertainment," Govinda, who was here to shoot for David Dhawan's "Do Knot Disturb", told IANS.

The movie also stars Sushmita Sen and Ritiesh Deshmukh.

"The film is a 'mirch masala' family drama," Govinda said, but refused to divulge details about the storyline.

For "Do Knot Disturb", Govinda has teamed up with producer Vashu Bhagnani and director David Dhawan in a bid to revive the magic of their earlier entertainers like "Coolie No.1", "Bade Miyan Chote Miyan" and "Hero No.1".

Govinda will also be seen in "Money Hai To Honey Hai" and in Ravi Chopra's "Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai". And Interestingly, he is part of Jagmohan Mundra's English project titled "Excuse Me, Please" too.

His daughter Narmada is now set to foray into Bollywood and the actor considers her his student. But Govinda believes it is more important to teach her honesty towards work than acting skills.
