Govinda admits, "Yes, I have bought a house in Kolkata but I can't disclose where it is as my privacy will get disrupted. I adore Kolkata and it's of great importance to me. I have always felt that I have a strong emotional connection with the city." Why a home in Kolkata of all places? "Main wahaan rehta hoon jahan mujhe pyaar mile… I enjoy the breeze and shanti I get in Kolkata. Nobody invades my privacy. Whenever I have free time, I go there and spend some time. I fly down and drive straight from the airport to my home where nobody recognises me."
Buzz is that he's doing a Bengali film. "No. I am not doing any Bengali film. I did not find the space I wanted in Mumbai. I love being by myself but that doesn't happen in Mumbai. There, I am always thinking of my career, work, money and other material things. In Kolkata, I can be myself." Govinda's next releases are Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai and Run Bhola Run. "I feel as if I am always on the move and running… in Kolkata, I feel I have found my groove — finally. I am at peace with myself."
