Govinda Naam Mera is yet to release in theatres but filmmaker Karan Johar has already hinted at a spin-off. KJo has hinted that there might be a spin-off for a pivotal character in Govinda Naam Mera. The character, he spilled about, was Bhumi Pednekar’s Gauri.

At the grand trailer launch of the film, Karan was conversing with Bhumi when he spilled that there is a possibility of a spin-off for Govinda Waghmare’s wife, Gauri. “Bhumi’s portrayal of Gauri will keep you wanting for more,” Karan promised. He then revealed that there’s a spin-off there.

After speaking of it, he tried to state that every character has a twist and turn and thus, they cannot and should not reveal too much about it. Thus, he refused to spill more beans on it.

Bhumi is elated to work on Govinda Naam Mera. She said, “I really wanted to do a comedy and thriller and here was this script with this fantastic cast. What an ensemble cast we have where every character was done with so much justice.”

The actress described the movie as ‘really funny’ and one that ‘keeps you guessing and at the edge of your seat.’ She added that the role of Gauri in the movie pushed her out of her comfort zone.

Karan and Bhumi have collaborated for a movie the third time since Lust Stories and Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship. Both the films also had Vicky in the lead roles. While he was paired romantically with Bhumi in Bhoot, the actor played Kiara Advani’s husband in Lust Stories.

Interestingly enough, Kiara is also a part of Govinda Naam Mera. She plays the role of Vicky aka Govinda Waghmare’s girlfriend in Govinda Naam Mera. Meanwhile, Bhumi plays his wife.

Apart from Govinda Naam Mera, Vicky and Bhumi are also paired together in Karan Johar’s directorial film Takht. The movie will go on floors once Karan completes shooting for Ranveer Singh-Alia Bhatt starring movie, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.

Directed by Shashank Khaitan, Govinda Naam Mera also stars Trupti Kamkar and Amey Wagh in pivotal roles. The movie is slated for a theatrical release on December 16, 2022.
