Goonda No. 1?

Say it aint so, Govinda!

The low-brow (and proud of it) Bollywood actor Govinda, lately a Member of Parliament in the Congress party for north Bombay, may have been hobnobbing with gangsters in Dubai. And not just any gangsters -- Dawood Ibrahim himself! Mr. D.

Apparently there is a videotape. With their sense of irony firmly challenged, the BJP is demanding immediate action. (You can't make this stuff up)

On the other hand, on this blog, Congress officials are quoted as saying that the video is from before 1993. Dawood Ibrahim wasn't known as a super-criminal until after the Bombay blasts, so it's not as bad as it might look.
