MUMBAI: Govinda was truly overwhelmed when Salman Khan presented him with a Mercedes Benz because the actor-politician had refused to take remuneration for a film. â€œHe signed me at a time when he is at the peak of his career and my career was in the pits. I wanted to thank him but even before I could do so, he went one step further and presented me with a Mercedes. I can never forget this gesture of his for the rest of my life,â€ Govinda says. Not many are aware that Govinda had costarred with Salman in Deewana Mastana many years ago, when he made a fleeting appearance in the film, reports Bollywood Trade. â€œI merely managed to say hello to Salman at that time but now heâ€™s more than a friend to me,â€ he says. He is very excited about Salman and Sohailâ€™s yet untitled home production to be directed by David Dhawan. â€œWorking with David Dhawan is like homecoming after a long time. I really feel privileged,â€ he says.
