Which 'Baba' is Govinda playing in Rangeela Raja?

July 20, 2018 11:17 IST

'It is the time for Sanju Baba, why speak of another Baba?' Director Pahlaj Nihalani tells Subhash K Jha.

Rangeela Raja -- Govinda's comeback film -- just became more intriguing.

It is known Govinda plays a double role. One of his characters is based on the fugitive tycoon Vijay Mallya.

It now comes to light that Govinda's other character in Rangeela Raja is based on a 'baba'.

 

Nihalani, usually so outspoken, is reluctant to call a spade a spade. Or a Baba a Baba.

"Bhai, abhi Sanju Baba ka zamana hai. Doosre Baba ka zikr kyon karen? (It is the time for Sanju Baba, why speak of another Baba?) But if you look at the pictures of the song, you will know whom Govinda and newcomer Anupama Agnihotri are playing in that song. The rest I leave to your imagination," says Nihalani.

Govinda and Nihalani reunite after 25 years.

They last worked in Aankhen (1993). They also worked on Shola Aur Shabnam (1992) and Ilzaam (1986).
