Govinda suggested the Avatar movie title to James Cameron

Recently, bollywood actor Govinda came in the episode of India Tv channel's Aap Ki Adalat show where he claims in front of Rajat Sharma that he suggested the title of Avatar movie to the legendary filmaker James Cameron.

The 55 years old actor also claim that he refused to do the role in Avatar as he couldn't set aside 410 days for the shooting and also because he was not okay with the use of body paint. In addition, Govinda claimed that he told the filmmaker James Cameron that the film would become a huge hit.

"I gave the title of the film (Avatar). It turned out to be a super hit film. I told him (James Cameron) that the film will do really well.

I told him that what he was imagining was something almost impossible," Govinda said on the show.
