After the success of ‘Partner’, the ‘jodi no 1′ of comedy, actor Govinda and director David Dhawan, will again try to tickle the funny bones of the viewers with ‘Do Knot Disturb’.Two former beauty queens — Sushmita Sen and Lara Dutta — are working together for the first time in the film. Dhawan has also roped in successful comedians like Riteish Deshmukh, Rajpal Yadav, Ranbir Shorey and Sohail Khan, besides his lucky mascot Govinda.

“Public likes to see us together. It is their unflinching love and faith which makes us successful together,” Govinda says about his partnership with comedy king Dhawan that has given hits like ‘Coolie No 1′, ‘Hero No 1′, ‘Sajan Chale Sasural’ and ‘Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan’.”We have worked in 17 films together and have been one of the most successful director-actor pairs in the film industry. We will come together for many more projects in future as well,” Dhawan said at a function here last evening to announce the start of the shooting of ‘Do Knot Disturb’.

Dhawan is also planning a sequel of ‘Partner’. The film’s leading lady Sushmita Sen said she and Govinda shared a very good chemistry onscreen and is enjoying shooting together again. “Shooting with Chi Chi (Govinda) is always fun. He is a great prankster,” she says.Govinda, who is also a Congress MP, had kept himself away from films in recent years barring a few roles and a stint in a television quiz show which did not meet with much success. He, however, found favour with viewers with ‘Partner’, co-starring Salman Khan, Lara Dutta and Katrina Kaif.

“I am making up for the three years that I lost not doing films. I am balancing my film career now.” he says when asked about his disappearance from the silverscreen. Govinda now admits that his decision to keep away from films was a mistake.”I was nervous for the first shot for ‘Partner’. I became normal only after the second shot,” he says. When asked about his opinion about the latest debutantes from the film fraternity — Harman Baweja, Imran Khan and Sikander Kher, Govinda comes up with a politically correct answer, “I think all of them are very good, talented and hard-working youngsters.”

“They work hard and are very professional in their life. They don’t party and survive on boiled food to maintain a good physique,” he quips. With Shah Rukh Khan making six-pack-abs a new fashion in film industry, will Govinda ever hit the gym to tone down?”It is very difficult to do, but why not? We are actors and if a role demands something like that I will definitely try it,” he says. Riteish Deshmukh, who had made a name with comedies like ‘Apna Sapna Money Money’, ‘Masti’ and ‘Malamal Weekly’, has teamed up with Dhawan for the first time.

“I had worked in some very good comedies and working with Dhawan completes the circle.” When asked about him being touted as the Govinda of the present generation, Deshmukh says “It is a great complement for me to be compared with someone like him.”

Strange behaviour on the sets of Kumar Mangat’s Money Hai To Honey Hai.

Sources on the sets says, “Govinda was feeling low on a particular day while shooting for the film in Mauritius. That’s when he called his astrologer in Mumbai to know more about his state of mine. The astrologer suggested that since there was Rahu kaal on him that particular day, he will have to shoot some sequence with a hen and the Rahu kaal will vanish for good from his life.

“Knowing how superstitious Govinda can be, he somehow came up with a suggestion to use a hen in the sequence. The production house had to arrange for a hen because of which the shooting was stalled for a couple of hours. However the poor hen was tired soon as the astrologer had asked Govinda to shoot for an entire day with the hen.

The source adds, “The poor hen was so exhausted that it died on the sets. However, the astrologer insisted that Govinda shoot till 7 pm with the hen. So, the actor decided to shoot with the dead hen till 7 pm and even has a shot with him carrying the dead hen in his hands. Govinda stop shooting only at 7 pm. However, everyone on the sets was wondering where they will fit this sequence as it is not even a part of the script!”

Freaky shit.

On the face of it seems like IIFA is not attracting the big-time sponsors. But they have a fairly large star cast performing in Bangkok. Priyanka and her beau Harman (who’s making his stage debut) will showcase a song from Love Story 2050. Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaid, Govinda and Kareena Kapoor have promised to perform.

Aftab Shivadsani, Ritesh Deshmukh and Ayesha Takia andvare there to promote their venture De Taali. Zayed khan, Vivek Oberoi and Shriya sahan are there as a part of the Mission Istanbul cast. And the first look of Acid Factory with Dia Mirza, Dino Morea and Fardeen Khan will be revealed on stage.

Let’s hope the IIFA awards go smoothly without any mudslinging which seems to have become an integral part of award functions.
