Wife & Children

Govinda tied the knot with Sunita Munjal on March 11, 1987. However, their marriage was kept a secret for one year as they were concerned it might affect Govinda’s female fan following. Together, they are blessed with two children: a daughter named Tina Ahuja and a son named Yashvardhan. Tina Ahuja made her Bollywood debut in the film “Second Hand Husband” in 2015.


Govinda’s first girlfriend was Neelam Kothari, and it is reported that he was captivated by her beauty to such an extent that he would ask his then-girlfriend Sunita (now his wife) to emulate Neelam’s qualities. In the year 2000, during the filming of the Hindi film ‘Hadh Kar Di Aapne,’ Govinda was rumored to have started dating his co-star Rani Mukerji.
