After 35 years of seeing ups and lows of the film industry, Govinda is all set to revisit it with his multi-edition autobiography. “I had decided early on that I would start writing my autobiography when I turn 57,” said Govinda, who began developing his memoir after crossing the milestone last year.
On what his autobiography will be all about, he said, “It will be a multi-edition autobiography. My story cannot be contained in one book. Each phase can be a different book — from my childhood years in a chawl, to my stardom, to the empty phase in my life when I didn’t have much work. I’ll write it in a light-hearted manner. I want to develop the memoir for the industry ka honewala sitara — if he reads my story, uss bechare ki bahut problems solve ho jayenge. Like Raj Kapoorji, I have tried to tell my story through my characters.”
His life hasn’t been without its share of controversies. About the same, he said, “You should never give it all away because then, there’s nothing left to say. I was an ordinary, short-tempered boy. I got lucky by God’s grace, aur star ban gaya."
