Govinda Govinda

Named for a Hindu deity, Govinda was born Govind Arun Ahuja on Dec. 21, 1958, in Punjab, India, but has spent much of his life in Mumbai. He debuted as a dancer in Tan Badan (1986) and eventually became a bona fide actor in the thriller Hatya (1988).

But Govinda's star didn't truly shine until he teamed with director David Dhawan for a string of successful films. Among their box-office hits are Aankhen (1993), Raja Babu (1994), Coolie No. 1 (1995), Saajan Chale Sasural (1996), Hero No. 1 (1997), Deewana Mastana (1997), Bade Miyan Chote Miyan (1998) and Haseena Maan Jayegi (1999).

Generally considered Bollywood's top comedic actor, Govinda has continued working steadily in the new millennium, appearing most notably in Aamdani Atthanni Kharcha Rupaiya (2001), Akhiyon Se Goli Maare (2002) and Sandwich (2006).
