  • April 7th Question: Who was Govinda´s first female co-star?

    Neelam! (Sophia, check your records! You did ask almost the same question on July 22nd of 2000 ;-)

  • March 31st Question: Which was Aishwarya Rai´s first ever movie?

    Uff, that´s a tough one! Our database says that IRUVAR (Tamil) was released on January 14th of 1997 and IDDARU (Telugu) was also released in 1997. AUR PYAR HO GAYA was released in 1997, too. But that was in August, so it must either be IRUVAR or IDDARU.
