'Fryday' might just do the trick, the 54-year-old actor said

In Abhishek Dogra’s upcoming comedy “Fryday,” Varun Sharma’s salesman Rajiv knocks on Gagan’s door to sell a water purifier. However, things do not go as planned, since the customer he is dealing with happens to be cheating on his wife. Gagan is played by comic legend Govinda, so you know what to expect.

“Check your brains at the door before you come to watch the film,” Govinda said at the launch of the trailer in Mumbai on Saturday. 

Directed by Abhishek Dogra (“Dolly Ki Doli”) and written by Manu Rishi Chadha and Rajeev Kaul, the comedy of errors also stars Brijendra Kala, Sanjay Mishra and Digangana Suryavanshi. “Fryday” will be released on October 12.

“Fryday” is Govinda’s only release in 2018. He has been making sporadic appearances on the screen, including in “Kill Dil” (2014) and “Aa Gaya Hero” (2017), but he hasn’t been able to match the success of his films with David Dhawan in the 1990s and 2000s.

“Fryday” might just do the trick, the 54-year-old actor said. 

“After a long time, I have got such a nice film to work on,” he said. “It was a pleasant surprise working with such talented actors. Varun [Sharma] is too good. I knew that this film would be a super hit. If both of us reduce weight, we will both become superstars.”
