"I'm Amitji's biggest fan. And that's why these comparisons are becoming a bit too much for me to digest, " says Govinda.
The final straw on the camel's back was a reality show aired on Sunday night where choreographer Saroj Khan praised Govinda to the skies…but relatively speaking.
Sighs Govinda, "I'm very grateful to Saroj-ji for all the wonderful things she has said about me. I respect her a lot.
My daughter Narmada has been training in dance with Saroj-ji. In fact she'll be directing a film for me soon. I know she meant well. But why am I being constantly compared with Amitji. Main to naukar hoon.
He's the true king of the entertainment industry. I played the naam ka Raja Babu. He's the true Raja Babu."
Though he's not willing to talk about it openly Govinda is also not amused by the constant reference to him in the context of the 'Govinda Govinda' chant in Ram Gopal Varma's Sarkar and Sarkar Raj.
At a recent awards function Govinda's picture was flashed on stage while the Sarkar Raj theme raged on.
"I won't say anything more, " says Govinda diplomatically. "But I'll say this. God bless all those who are using my name for their own reasons. I'll also say this.
Don't try the patience of a patient man. My willpower is about to give way. Now I've reached a stage where I'll react even if one hair on my head is tampered with."
