Govinda said, “I had suggested the title of the movie to him and that movie became a super hit. I told Cameron it would take about 7-8 years to make the movie and he was disappointed. He asked me how can I say with such certainty that ‘Avatar’ can’t be done soon. I replied saying that it seemed impossible from my point of view and as I predicted, the film arrived after 7 years and was a huge success.
Turned down because of body paint
Govinda had further stated that “I told Cameron it was not in my power to paint the whole body blue and stay for 410 days”. In this way, Govinda refused to do James Cameron’s films.
