kader govinda

Actor Govinda, who has worked with late actor Kader Khan in several films, has paid tribute to the comedy icon in a new Twitter post. Khan died after a prolonged illness at a hospital in Toronto in Canada on Tuesday.
“RIP Kader Khan Saab. He was not just my “ustaad” but a father figure to me, his midas touch and his aura made every actor he worked with a superstar. The entire film industry and my family deeply mourns this loss and we cannot express the sorrow in words. #ripkaderkhansaab,” Govinda wrote in his tweet.

More often than not, the onscreen chemistry and camaraderie between Khan and Govinda was more entertaining and significant to the film than the chemistry between the hero and heroine. Take Dulhe Raja for example. The film is all about Govinda trying to convince his girlfriend’s rich father to let him marry his daughter. The whole film is full of funny exchanges and hilarious sequences involving Govinda and Khan, Raveena Tandon has very little screen time.
Some of the most memorable Kader Khan-Govinda pairings were in films like Aankhen, Raja Babu, Hero No 1 and Rajaji, where they played father and son.  Then the two were seen complementing each other as father-in-law and son-in-law in films like Coolie No. 1, Dulhe Raja, Joru Ka Ghulam and Kunwara.
Putting them together in the same frame produced comedy gold. It was as if Khan had met his match in Govinda in the genre of comedy. Throughout the ’90s, the two of them acted in a series of comedies that created a niche of their own in Hindi cinema.
