Earlier, when Govinda had tested positive for COVID-19, his wife Sunita Ahuja had opened up about his health while speaking with Etimes, "He had symptoms of a cold and we thought it would be best if he could get a COVID test done as those symptoms were not receding. His senses of smell and taste are intact, he has no fever either. Importantly, he is eating well. Currently, he has just a bodyache and cold."
Workwise, Govinda was last seen in 2019 film Rangeela Raja. The movie was a box office disaster.
