Karan Johar Convinces Vicky Kaushal In Fun Video, The Film To Release On Disney+ Hotstar


New Delhi: Vicky Kaushal, Kiara Advani, and Bhumi Pednekar starrer ‘Govinda Naam Mera’ will release on Disney+ Hotstar. Produced by Dharma Productions, the film is the first collaboration of Karan Johar and Vicky Kaushal. 

Karan Johar shared a video with Vicky on Instagram and wrote, “Ladies & gentlemen, @vickykaushal09 seems to have chosen…#FunVicky! Buckle up, you don’t want to be missing this ride!🍿.” 

In the video, Karan is seen pitching the film’s script to Vicky who is not very impressed by the script and tries to avoid it by telling Karan he is busy in the coming months. But the filmmaker gives him the option to choose between ‘Govinda Naam Mera’ and Student of the Year 3. Vicky obviously has no choice but to choose ‘Govinda Naam Mera’. 

In the film, Bhumi Pednekar plays Vicky’s wife and Kiara Advani plays his girlfriend. The makers had earlier planned to release the film in the theaters. 

Producer Karan Johar said, “With the release of Govinda Naam Mera, Dharma Productions further strengthens its partnership with Disney+ Hotstar. We are excited to bring this holiday special film filled with power packed performances by Vicky Kaushal, Kiara Advani and Bhumi Pednekar exclusive to the viewers of Disney+ Hotstar.”    

Gaurav Banerjee, Head- Content, Disney+ Hotstar & HSM Entertainment Network, Disney Star said, “We are delighted to announce a new film in partnership with our partners, Dharma! Shashank Khaitan’s films have always touched a chord with young consumers and we are confident Govinda Naam Mera will add more to this filmography!” 

Director Shashank Khaitan, sharing his excitement about the film, said, “Working on this new genre of comedy was fascinating and with a talented star cast it only made it easy. Govinda Naam Mera is a complete family entertainer which will keep the viewers guessing until the end.
