It has been reported that Govinda Naam Mera appears to be a renewed version of Mr Lele, which was supposed to star Varun Dhawan in the lead. Shedding light on why the project did not work out with Varun in the lead, Shashank said, “We were not able to form a flow for the shoot. It was a small film that was to be based in Mumbai, but things were not falling in place. I kept feeling that something is not right. Since Karan, Varun and I collectively felt it, we decided to hold off the project for the time being.”
