Ghosts Of The Past Revisit Priyanka As Govinda Starrer Resurfaces

While Priyanka Chopra gets ready for the release of her Barfi!, there are old skeletons coming out of her cupboard. One of her long delayed films has gone for a title change and is now arriving as Deewana Main Deewana. The film stars, hold your breath, Govinda in the lead. Incidentally, this is the fourth title change for this near-decade old film.
"Yes, the film was earlier titled Ek Hasina Ek Deewana. After that it was called Bekasoor. Then a couple of years back it came quite close to release with the title Don't Worry. Now when the makers are actually serious about releasing it and have also released a few songs on the music channels, it is with a new name Deewana Main Deewana'", informs our source.
This is a film that Priyanka had signed when Govinda was a reigning star and she was fresh out of her Miss World stint. While she had signed The Hero and Andaaz with other two superstars Sunny Deol and Akshay Kumar respectively, even Govinda was in her wish-list. This is when director K.C. Bokadia approached her for Ek Hasina Ek Deewana and PC was game for it.
"Of course the film wasn't the grandest of setups for Priyanka but guess she may have found the unusual pairing to be exciting enough", comments an observer, "Govinda too was hunting for a new pairing post Karisma Kapoor and together they must have felt that a masala fare like this would fetch them a safe outing and also pave way for a new jodi."
However, as luck would have had it, the film was completed but never saw the light of the day. Now even though the makers feel that it may be a good idea to finally unleash the film, we doubt if either Priyanka or Govinda would indeed be willing to reveal much about it.
