The conversation that had started from talking about Govinda and Neelam’s joint appearance last weekend in ‘Super Dancer 4’, veers back to the show. “Oh, that episode was fab. I loved watching it. Neelam always made a special pair with Govinda but I wish I had also gone, we would have made a great love triangle,” he chuckles, adding, “Off-screen,” after a pause for effect.
Chunky then went on to narrate how Neelam had once got badly hurt due to him. “When Pahlaj Nihalani told me that my first film (‘Aag Hi Aag’ in 1987) was opposite Neelam, I went mad. Neelam was a teenage sensation back then. So, I told him mujhe sab kuch chalana aata hai–bike, car, ghoda (I can ride everything-bike, car, horse). Now, in one of the scenes, I had to escape with her from a mandap, and I dropped her off the bike. She badly burnt her leg. I apologised profusely, but she was a brave girl. It did not take long for her to take it in her stride,” Chunky concludes.
