Govinda’s Rangeela Raja climax changed, here’s why
Govinda’s latest innings in Bollywood has been a damp squib. Even his last movie Aa Gaya Hero sank without a trace at the box office. However, the actor is now reuniting with Pahlaj Nihalani for Rangeela Raja, in which he plays a double role and his characters are inspired by Vijay Mallya and Baba Ramdev. The movie is a satirical take on both of these personalities. Now, we hear there’s a bit of trouble on the sets.
A source from the crew told us, “The makers had planned to shoot the entire climax this month. But when Pahlaj discussed it with the whole team, they were a little concerned. Although it will be done in jest, they are worried that the ending might offend followers of Baba Ramdev.”
According to our source, the team is ‘reshooting the entire climax’. “They are mellowing it down and changing the scene’s tonality. Mallya is a national villain now, so they aren’t too worried about his character. But disrespecting Baba Ramdev will only invite trouble for the makers, which they want to avoid,” added our source. When After Hrs contacted Pahlaj, he said, “I don’t know what the climax will be, at this point. But I won’t change it for anyone. Nobody knows what it will be because there’s no script. I haven’t given the actors any narration, I’m filming each day as it comes. I’ll shoot the climax towards the end of June. By then, I’ll know what it will be.”
