Govinda’s daughter Narmada’s launchpad in Bollywood faced a roadblock in the form of boxing champion Vijender Singh.
The sportsman who was on the brink of making his tinsel town debut declared recently that he was no longer interested in playing the male lead in Narmada’s debut film Manchali. Daddy Govinda however was in no mood to give up. In an effort to fix things for his daughter’s film, the actor spoke to Vijender and convinced him to change his mind.
According to a source, Govinda, who had been hearing and reading reports of Vijender opting out of Manchali, decided to talk to the sportsman himself. The outcome was favourable and Narmadda’s debut film is now back on track.
When contacted, Govinda said, “Vijender is a self-made personality like me. Look at how proud he has made our country. I’d love him to play the lead with my daughter. And I’ve no qualms in telling him so.
The rest is up to him. He has not said even once to me or anyone else that he doesn’t want to work with my daughter. I think it’s important to get everything sorted out before Narmada’s film goes on floors. Once the shooting starts there should be no glitches.”
Denying having ever opted out of the film, Vijender Singh told Mumbai Mirror, “Maine kab kaha mujhe film nahin karni? I want to do the film.

The Indian boxing champ and Narmada will make their debut together
TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; February 16, 2011)
It is a known fact that the 26-year-old Olympic boxer champ Vijender Singh Beliwal from Haryana, is keen on an acting career. He has been undergoing training in martial arts, horse-riding, Bollywood dancing and has even hired a leading PR agency in Mumbai to handle his portfolio. Narmada, the attractive daughter of Govinda has also been waiting in the wings for her Bollywood screen debut.
Narmada was considered for the same role as Sonakshi Sinha in Dabangg; obviously that was not to be. Reliable trade sources say that filmmaker Lovely Singh who made Kya Love Story Hai (2007) is going to be directing the internationally renowned boxer and the star-kid in a subject that Lovely has contributed to.
Sources indicate that it will be a film with a love story at the core. However, Lovely refuses to give out any details on the project. Our source says, “Lovely flew up North to meet Vijender and finalise the details.” If this film comes through the way it is planned it will be a coup.
