Even after almost two decades, Govinda’s comical antics from the 1990s are still memorable for the Hindi film audience. Abhishek Dogra, director of Govinda's upcoming film Fryday, calls it ‘Govindaism'. While speaking about the film, he said that the audience will also get to see the old Govinda in the film. 

“Although Govinda sir is known for slapstick comedy, the plot required situational comedy. We have added a tinge of ‘Govindaism’ to the film without any doubt. Therefore, the audience will see the amalgamation of both new and old Govinda. And with situational, as well as slapstick comedy both running the plot, Fryday dwells in contemporary cinema,” said Dogra in an official statement. 

Dogra is highly impressed by Govinda’s style of working. “Govinda sir rehearses entire scenes before an individual take which helps improve the quality of the shot. He works like theatre. His entire body language changes while he is acting. Unlike other actors, Govinda works on his body postures too while working on his face impressions for a scene,” he said. 

The director also praised Govinda's ability to improvise. “Govinda sir has an art for enhancing scenes and taking them from one level to another. He has done that in Fryday as well and it is brilliant!” added Dogra. 

Fryday will see Govinda pitted against Varun Sharma, who is known for his act as Choocha in the Fukrey series.
