Govinda was last seen in 2019 film Rangeela Raja. When asked about his absence from parties and why he isn’t a part of any group, he said he has been like this for years now. The actor said, “Over the years, Bollywood parties have become these group parties, and if you don’t belong to a certain group (camp), you aren’t invited. If you are not seen at these parties, it is assumed that you aren’t social, which is wrong. I am not anti-social at all, and I don’t believe in groups. Back then, people used to say Govinda, Shakti Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor and David Dhawan are a group. I didn’t agree with that either. We are all artistes who worked together (sic).”
