In a recent media interview, Vicky Kaushal opened up about his favorite comic actors and shared his experience meeting them on film sets.
"My favourite comedy actors would be Mehboob Saab, Govinda and Johnny Lever sir. The first time I was ever on a film set as a kid was on the sets of Fiza (2000). They were shooting Johnny Lever scene at Film City. I still remember watching him perform and making the entire unit laugh. I was one of them who was laughing along with him. Little did I know that he was just performing the scene but I was just mesmerised seeing him perform a gag which was so funny that the entire set was laughing." He adds, "Johnny Lever, Govinda and Kadar Khan combination over the entire 90s is just golden."
Kaushal’s upcoming comedy thriller Govinda Naam Mera also starring Bhumi Pednekar and Kiara Advani will stream on Disney+ Hotstar on December 16. The film is produced by Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma productions and is directed by Shashank Khaitan.
