Govinda to promote football in Avatar
What the Shah Rukh Khan film Chak De did to the game of hockey, similarly Govinda promises to do the same to football in his new film Avatar produced and directed by Pahlaj Nihalani. In fact, Nihalani intends to sell the film as football’s answer to Chak De.
Govinda too has made it clear that he will promote football with a vengeance in the film. “We neglect all games and sports except cricket. Hopefully my film will break that monopoly and motivate youngsters to try games other than cricket,” says the actor.
Though the actor isn’t really known for films other than masala entertainers, let alone sports-related ones, but he is very keen to do this film. Not only has he been spending time working on his physique to look the part of a football coach, he has also been honing his football skills.
Govinda believes too much attention is given to cricket in our country. “We neglect all games and sports except cricket. Hopefully my film will break that monopoly and motivate youngsters to try games other than cricket,” he observes.
Once the film is ready, the actor plans to organise football benefit matches with his football-crazy colleagues in the film industry like Ranbir Kapoor and Vishal Bharadwaj.
