In a previous interaction with Vinay Pathak on the show Har Ghar Kucch Kehta Hai in 2014, Govinda revealed his brother would shoot down all his ideas by saying, "Yeh humara kaam nahi hai (this isn’t our kind of work)."
In defence, his brother said that the family has seen great poverty and all he wanted for them to come out of it.
He further said, "Govinda carved his own path in the film industry, and did it on his own. I, on the other hand, took a lot of knocks. But when he started out, I assumed the responsibility of becoming his secretary. During this time, I made him sign way too many films. We’d experienced a lot of poverty together, and I only wanted to emerge from it.”
"One day, he locked the room we were in, and presented all his money, all his bank documents. I was overjoyed. But we had to figure out what to do with the money. And Govinda’s first idea was, ‘Pappu, let’s buy 100 auto rickshaws’. I told him this wasn’t our kind of business… Some time later, Govinda became a star. Once again, we wondered what to do with all his money. And this time, he said, ‘Pappu, let’s buy 100 trucks’. Again, I told him this wasn’t our kind of business.”

Speaking of his film career, Govinda had previously revealed that he signed several films after his debut film.
During his interview on the sets of his film Ghar Mein Ram Gali Mein Shyam in 1987, Govinda revealed that he had signed as many as 70 films, but had to turn most of them down because he simply didn't have the time. He ultimately ended up doing around 10 films a year during the initial years.
