Arguably the “No. 1” Hero of the 90s. He transcended the traditional leading man role to doing comedy, with David Dhawan directing him in countless blockbusters. Armed with impeccable comic timing and pelvis thrust that can still be seen when any Indian takes to the dance floor. You can’t talk about 90s Bollywood without dedicating a major chunk of conversation to this man.

Trivia: Govinda was voted as the tenth greatest star of stage or screen of the last thousand years by BBC News Online users.
