Will the real Raja Babu please stand up?


Govinda with his family at an award function
Today after losing 28 kgs today, he is fit and ready to take on the newcomers who’re probably half his age and have more credibility. But his downfall had corroded his mind at a time. Distinct signs of this were evident when this reporter met him just at the point in his life when he was preparing for his return to acting. He appeared weary, politically correct and grumpy. Any reference to his personal life and he would snap like it were taboo. He explained that he was trying very hard to get back in shape. One of the things he did for getting there was to have just one meal at the end of each day. While you don’t need an expert to point out the adverse affects of such a diet, he was firm about his diet plan. He added that he has even learnt a lot about Ayurveda and was preparing his own medicines at home. Even his meals were Ayurvedic and he would dish it out himself, since he only trusted his own judgment. And then he complains that the media is out to malign him!

But given his celebrity status coupled with his candid outlook to life, it’s only natural that his misdemeanors would make for juicy tabloid literature. So let’s ignore his past and celebrate the Raja Babu who we have grown to love over the years. Here are five songs that let us revisit the actor’s prime and allow us to reminisce the fun and flirty characters he played on the big screen:

Arey Ek Hai Anaar Yahan- Dulaara



Ek Chumma Tu Mujhko- Chhote Sarkar



Jaane Jaana- Achanak



Dil Leke Gaya Chor - Achanak



Ek Soni Kudi- Achanak
