In the wake of several cuts given to his upcoming film Rangeela Raja, Govinda has alleged that there is a group of people in the industry, who are conspiring to not let his films release, reports Hindustan Times.
A press conference was held Saturday evening after the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) reportedly refused to certify the film and ordered 20 cuts. The film is produced by former CBFC chief and filmmaker Pahlaj Nihalani.“This has been happening for the last nine years where a group of people in the film industry is conspiring against me and not letting my films release on any good platform,” Govinda told reporters. “Either my films are not getting a release or they are not getting good number of theatres or screens. The recent example was Fryday which released a few weeks ago and media gave it a good review. They took the film away from theatres,” he said, without taking any names.
Govinda, who made his acting debut with Nihalani’s Ilzaam, worked with him on films such as Shola Aur Shabnam and Aankhen. Both were superhits. “Our film industry was never like this and it seems we are living in a different world. If someone would have supported me then I would have not faced problems.
