One of the top Bollywood actors of the 90s, Govinda ruled the era with his impeccable performances, whether starring in comedies, action movies, or flaunting his disco dancing skills.
On his 57th birthday today, his fans have flooded the social media with some nostalgic memories of the best of his dancing movies, wackiest look and great comic timing.
