If you’re a 90s child, chances are that you have watched and loved the heist comedies by the team of David Dhawan and Govinda. But times change and so do people.

The duo, which has churned out entertainers like ‘Hero No 1’, ‘Coolie No 1’, ‘Raja Babu’, ‘Bade Miyaan Chhote Miyaan’ and ‘Partner’ among others, may not work together again. Govinda doesn’t intend to work again with the director as it seems their relationship has hit a rough patch.

According to a report published in Times Of India, Govinda said, “No, I don’t want to work with David Dhawan as he didn’t stand by me during my bad patch. I feel when a person thinks that you are not capable of doing his film or working with him, then one should not ask for work, or work with that person if he thinks that you are a liability on him. I think the love between us, that has been there over the years, should remain the same. We should live a healthy life. Currently, he is a proud father and let him be happy. I have nothing to do with his films, nor do I want to discuss films with him.”

Earlier in 2014 too, the duo had a fallout and Govinda released a statement against David Dhawan. The actor revealed that he had given Dhawan the idea to make Chashme Buddoor (2013) back in 2009. “Suddenly, I got to know that Rishi Kapoor is doing my role. I never get upset with David because we have worked in so many films that we are used to quarrelling. But this time, we had a fight. I was like, ‘You didn’t even tell me’. “I feel, this is how the film industry works. Personally, even if I can’t work with you because your time isn’t right, I’d still like to maintain a relationship with you,” said Govinda.

As much as we are concerned and disappointed with what culminated, we sincerely hope the actor-director pair resolves their difference and give us chances to laugh yet again.
