together with fans across the world to celebrate his birthday today.
Arun Ahuja was born on 21st December 1963 to actor cum
Kumar Ahuja and singer Nirmala Devi in a Punjabi family. He was the
child in the family. He is the uncle of actress Ragini Khanna as well as
actress and popular comedian Krushna Abhishek. Govinda graduated in
Commerce from Annasaheb Vartak College, Mumbai. He is happily married to Sunita, who he met while working on Tan-Bandan (1986). The couple has two kids Narmada Ahuja and Yashvardhan Ahuja.
His journey in Bollywood began with
the film Ilzaam (1986). Apart from being a hit, this movie launched the actor as
a dancing icon. He continued to wow audiences with hit movies like Dariya Dil (1988), Hum (1991), and Ghair Khanooni (1989).
In 1990, his popular No. 1 series movies started along with several
comedy movies, establishing Govinda as a Comedy King of the time. Some
of these movies include Aankhen (1993), Coolie No. 1 (1995), Hero No. 1 (1997), and Haseena Maan Jayegi (1999). He continued to star in hit movies starting in 2006 with Bhagam Bhag. His other hits include Partner (2007), Life Partner (2009), Holiday (2014) and the most recent one, Kill Dil (2014). This fabulous star appeared in negative roles in Shikari (2000) and Kill Dil (2014), both of which received much appreciation from critics and viewers alike.
Govinda holds the record
of signing maximum films. He has been paired with actors like Shakti Kapoor,
Kader Khan, Johnny Lever, Sanjay Dutt, Anil Kapoor, and Paresh Rawal, all of which always turned out to be successful ventures.
He has tried his hand in politics and served as a MP. Govinda lent his voice in the movie Delhi Safari
