Govinda’s daughter Narmadda and boxer Vijendra Singh to debut in Manchali
Govinda finally admits that his daughter Narmadda is being launched in April. Though he declines from divulging the film’s name, it’s called Manchali. Earlier there were several false starts to the pretty girl’s launch. Govinda is so very excited about his daughter Narmadda’s debut that he’s eager, willing and determined to play any role that is offered to him in the film.
“I’ve told the film’s makers that I’m at their service for anything that they need. Bhai beti ka sawaal hai. Hum beti wale hain. Whatever is required I’ll do. I’m willing to play even a small role in Nammo (Narmadda)’s debut film.”
Apparently, the director Lovely Singh is now modifying the script to accommodate Govinda in the role of his own daughter’s father.
The father is of course enormously superstitious about Narmadda’s debut as he has every right to be. She has waited for almost three years for things to start moving ahead for her career.
When contacted, Govinda initially tried to conceal his daughter’s debut plans saying nothing has been finalized. A little later he called back to say it’s all in place and that it happened in his absence.
“I had only heard the first draft of the script. I was in Gujarat. I’ve just returned. So I wasn’t aware that Nammo heard the full script and loved it. Her co-star is boxer Vijender Singh who’s a good-looking chap. Nammo and Vijendar make a good pair…and you can’t blame me for being protective about her debut.”
Though the film stars a boxer there’s no sports in the film.
Informs Govinda, “It’s an out-and-out love story. No sports at all. We waited so long for Nammo’s debut because we didn’t want her to make the wrong start. We’re convinced this is the right project for her. She will have to work hard to prove herself. I just don’t want her to struggle the way I did. I’m still struggling.”
About his own role in Narmadda’s debut film, Govinda says, “I just want to be there for my own happiness. To watch my child finally face the camera is joyous enough. To be in the same frame as her is a double joy. I couldn’t have asked for more.”
Narmadda’s debut film with Vijender Singh starts shooting from April.
