Big Revelation! Govinda says he was offered James Cameron’s Avatar

By: Murtuza Nullwala

James Cameron’s Avatar is one of the highest-grossing films in the history of cinema. It is said to be the best film ever made and was appreciated a lot for its VFX. The movie starred Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, and Sigourney Weaver, and recently the Hero No.1 of Bollywood, Govinda revealed that he was offered Avatar.

While talking to a TV channel, Govinda said, “I gave the title of the film (Avatar). It turned out to be a super hit film. I had informed him (James Cameron, the director of Avatar) that the film will do really well. I told him that I feel it will take seven years for him to complete the film. He got angry. When I said so, he asked, How can you be so sure that I won’t be able to make Avatar for seven years?’ I told him that what he was imagining was something almost impossible. That he has named his film Avatar, but he is showing aliens.”

The actor added, “He wanted me to shoot for 410 days. For someone like me, to get painted all over the body was something I could not do. So, I apologised. But like I said, the film went on to become a super hit.”

Well, this is surely quite surprising that Govinda opted to star in Avatar and missed an opportunity to work with a director like James Cameron. Govinda was last seen on the big screen in Rangeela Raja which turned out to be a disaster at the box office. We surely hope to see the actor in a good Bollywood film.

Meanwhile, Cameron is coming up with Avatar 2 and Avatar 3. The second instalment of the film is slated to in December 2020 and Avatar 3 will hit the screens in December 2023. We are surely quite excited about these two instalments of Avatar.
