Mumbai, Jan 29 — Govinda, who will soon be seen in the much-delayed film "Deewana Main Deewana" opposite Priyanka Chopra, says he always knew that she would go on to become a top actress.

"At the time when (K.C.) Bokadia sahab was selecting the heroine for the film, he told me that he would be finalising Priyanka Chopra and asked me how is the idea. I said she will be a top actress. And today she is one of the top actresses of Bollywood. May God bless her," the 49-year-old said here Monday in an interview.

With "Deewana Main Deewana", Govinda will break away from his image of a comic actor. However, he is not worried about it at all.

"People have not the seen the kind of cinema which I used to do for a long time now. The young generation knows only that much about my cinema which they have been seeing on television. So I don't think this image thing will create any problem for the film," he said.

"Deewana Main Deewana", releasing Friday, also features Kader Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Prem Chopra and Johnny Lever.
