In Govinda Naam Mera, Vicky plays the titular character of Govinda Waghmare, a struggling choreographer caught between his bullying wife Gauri (Bhumi Pednekar), and girlfriend Suku (Kiara Advani), who wants to marry him. It’s all fun and games until he discovers that he may end up losing his inheritance, the ancestral bungalow in which he lives and what follows is a thrilling set of events.
In an interview with news agency PTI, Vicky said, “It’s (world) really something very, very new that I have attempted… Eventually, it is about adding the grammar of the director’s vision to your process. That precisely is my process or at least a very integral part of my process. I learned a very interesting thing from Shah Rukh Khan sir. He told me there is always a grammar attached to every film and it comes with the director, what vision he has. It is important to understand the grammar that the director is coming with and my job is to fully suspend myself.”
Speaking about Govinda Naam Mera, Vicky added, “For me, this film is like my debut film because this is something I’ve never done before. It’s only been seven years, but still I have not done anything like this before. It’s a big test, it is like my first film. It might or might not work for me as an actor, and I’m really excited for that… as excited, I was for Masaan.”
Govinda Naam Mera, directed by Shashank Khaitan, also features Renuka Shahane, Sayaji Shinde, and Dayanand Shetty. Govinda Naam Mera is set to stream on Disney+ Hotstar from December 16. The film is jointly produced by Viacom18 Studios, Dharma Productions and Shashank.
