Govinda: I lost a lot of money as a producer

Govinda, whose home banner last produced the 2007 debacle Ssukh, has not produced a movie ever since. The actor-producer is not trying to revive his banner with his next film Abhinay Chakra.

Talking about it, Govinda says, “Bahot saare dhakke khaayen hain. I’ve lost a lot of money as a producer. But still here I am. I’ve revived my production house under the banner Mangal Tara Films. This is my humble effort to keep the culture of cinema going in my home.”

The film was completed in a record 29 days. “That’s why I am so happy about Abhinay Chakra. When the director Deepankar Senapati narrated the subject to me, I felt I had to do it. It’s something I’ve never done before. At this stage of my career it’s important for me to go to a new level. Repetition is death for me. I wanted to play this idealistic cop. And I wanted to complete the film in one schedule. Which we did,” laughs Govinda.

“We’re ready with the film. But we have to find a suitable Friday. No point in releasing inappropriately. I’ve suffered enough due to clumsy releases. Now I only want to work with people who can deliver on time,” adds the 49 year old actor.

When asked if his daughter Narmadda will make her debut in the industry, he says “It all depends on how Abhinay Chakra is received. To be honest I’d have never produced another film after my past experiences. But this subject fascinated me. I had to make it happen.”
