Now, another bit has been revealed that he was also offered the role of Chunnilal in Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Devdas. The role was played by Jackie Shroff. Govinda stated, “I asked Sanjay aapko mere mein Chunni Lal kaha dikhta hai? I was a superstar at that time. Mujhe laga theek hai, aap top ke director ho, achchhi baat hai, par aap mujhe character role kyu de rahe hai. Maine kaha ek kaam karna, Shah Rukh se kaho ki woh mujhe kahe. I can do the film for friendship but I won’t do it otherwise. I won’t do the film because you are a star or a top director. I love Shah Rukh a lot. We haven’t done a film together but he is a very nice person.”

He also revealed that he refused Gadar. “When Anil Sharma sir was reading the film to me, it had a lot of swear words. I said mein kisi aadmi se pang nahi leta tum ye kya kya kehte ho film mein. Bahut galia thi sir, I can’t even discuss it here,” he said.
