Look Who Govinda's Dancing Partner in the Eighties Was

A still from the song Street Dancer

New Delhi: Actor Govinda has starred in evergreen dance numbers with Raveena Tandon and Karishma Kapoor in the nineties. But who was his dancing partner when he was still a Street Dancer? It was Bollywood choreographer- Farah Khan.

How do we know that? Farah herself spilled the beans on Instagram on Sunday. Farah, 51, Instagrammed this blast from the past picture.

In the image, Govinda is dressed in a jacket which reminded us of Michael Jackson's Bad leather jacket while Farah is all jazzed up in hot pink dress and make-up and gold accessories. And hey, is that Sunita (Govinda's wife) sitting beside him?
