Indian Idol is all about Song and Dance. So can we get the Best Entertainer right here? The Master of Twists and Turns in Dance, Govinda is the Celebrity Judge this week in Indian Idol. Watch out for some electrifying performances by the contestants, matched with some great moves and shakes from the Master, Govinda himself….The stage this week was set on fire by the scintillating performance of Ankita Mishra , but as always, she made the Dancer in Govinda to shake his ribs…
Govinda's moves could put many a youngster to shame. The ease with which he danced to the vintage hit “Babuji dheere chalna” brought the house down. He followed it up with “Babuji zara dheere chalo bijlee khadi deko…”.
Ups and Downs are Part and Parcel of life.. The best example for this is Govinda, who after a slip in career is now back with a bang with the film Partner… Govinda is all praise for Buddy and ‘Friend Indeed’ Salman Khan who stepped in to help Govinda in his hour of need. Talking about the film Partner, Govinda exclaimed, “We only realized how funny the film has turned out to be when we saw the final result,". He is keeping his fingers crossed that the film will put him back on the comeback trail. Govinda fans are hoping the same too.
