Mr Govil is an Indian actor, producer and director. He has acted in various Hindi, Bhojpuri, Braj Bhasha, Oriya and Telugu movies.

“I did not know a lot about Fiji but, when I was preparing to come to Fiji, I did research on Fiji.

“When I saw some pictures of the beautiful Fiji Island, I knew that I was going to visit a very beautiful country,” he said.

Mr Govil said: “Fiji is very beautiful than what I had seen in the internet.

“There is no pollution, no traffic and Police are not everywhere.

“I only saw one Police officer when I was travelling from Nadi.

“The Police Officer booked a driver for over speeding,” he said.

Mr Govil has thanked the Fijian Government for maintaining discipline in the country. Mr Tappoo’ was behind the idea for the concert with Mr Govil.
