Ranveer Singh is an unabashed fan of senior actor Govinda and he has often copied his style for songs and performances. Govinda says he is grateful to such young talents who feel his inimitable dancing style is worth being imitated.


Ranveer is getting a chance to match steps with Govinda in Shaad Ali's "Kill Dil".

In fact, Ranveer even paid a tribute to Govinda's dancing skills in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela", as well as at an awards function.

Showering praise on the younger talent, Govinda said: "Yes, I saw Ranveer in the song 'Ishqyaun dhishqyaun' in '...Ram-Leela'. He was in full form. I am grateful to the younger actors who think my style is worthy of being copied."

The duo is said to be sharing a great bonding on the set of the Shaad Ali film.

"Shaad now plans to incorporate a full-on Govinda-Ranveer dance number where the fan will try to match steps with his idol," said a source associated with "Kill Dill".

Meanwhile, Govinda has lately lost a lot of weight to look convincing as Ranbir Kapoor's father in Anurag Basu's "Jagga Jasoos".

The versatile actor is excited about his first villain's role in "Kill Dil".

"It's my first full-fledged negative role. I had played a negative part in N. Chandra's 'Shikari' years ago. Times have now changed. Back then there was a past history for my character's dark deeds. Now in 'Kill Dil', my character is the way he is because he chooses to be."
