Govinda: Politics not easy


Staff member
Govinda who took a break from acting to try his luck in politics says it was not a wise decision as he couldn't fit into the political world.

"Changing profession was very difficult. I won't call politics a dirty game, but it is not an easy game either. I was sad when I couldn't match up with the talent in the political world. I realised that I should focus on something that gave me name and fame, something that had changed my life — acting," Govinda said.

The 47-year-old, who made a comeback with the 2007 release Partner, said: "Coming back to my industry after the political stint was a very difficult phase for me. I really had to struggle a lot to make my presence felt. It was like starting from scratch. You feel empty. There were moments when I felt very embarrassed."
