GOVINDA TO PLAY CONMAN 'VIJAY MALLYA' IN PAHLAJ NIHALANI'S NEXT

Bollywood actor Govinda, who is busy working in 'Bheja Fry' with young lad Varun Sharma, will play embattled business tycoon Vijay Mallya in the next film directed by former CFBC chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani. "I have made a movie inspired by the life of Vijay Mallya, and Govinda is in the main lead, audiences will be surprised to see his new avatar. The movie will be completely entertaining," Mr Nihalani told news agency ANI. Earlier this month, it was reported that the film is titled Rangeela Raja. Vijay Mallya, 62, the founder of Kingfisher Airlines, is wanted in India over fraud and money-laundering charges amounting to around Rs. 9,000 crore. A court in London is hearing the case and latest reports suggest that he would be regarded as a 'fugitive from justice.' He left India in 2016. Pahlaj Nihalani had launched Govinda in Ilzaam in 1986. He had earlier divulged details about the project to IANS and said, "Unlike the streetwise comic characters, Govinda is famous for, he plays a very sophisticated character in Rangeela Raja." Also, three new heroines will be launched opposite Govinda in the film.
