Pahlaj Nihalani had launched Govinda in Ilzaam in 1986. He had earlier divulged details about the project to IANS and said, "Unlike the streetwise comic characters, Govinda is famous for, he plays a very sophisticated character in Rangeela Raja." Also, three new heroines will be launched opposite Govinda in the film.
Deccan Chroincle reports that Mr Nihalani has already shot a song-and-dance sequence with Govinda for the film. "Not the Mallya card, the Mallya calendar. The entire look, feel, appearance and rhythm of the song sequence are based on the Kingfisher calendars. As for Govinda playing Mallya, let's keep the suspense going. I am neither denying nor admitting it. All I can say is that Govinda plays a man who is the biggest scamster of our times. Need I say more?" he told Deccan Chronicle.
Pahlaj Nihalani had a controversial tenure as CBFC chairperson and in August last year, he was replaced by lyricist Prasoon Joshi.
