Govinda, who recently turned from abhineta to neta, made waves earlier this week when he boarded a local train in Mumbai.

The Virar ka chokra, as he is affectionately called, travelled in a second class ticket from Borivali to Virar, his first home in the outskirts of Mumbai.

Presswallahs and fans accompanied the actor, who boarded the train along with Maharashtra Minister of State Kripashankar Singh.

Govinda is one of many actors who joined politics recently, on the eve of the upcoming elections. He is pitted against Member of Parliament and Union Minister Ram Naik.

On the filmi front, the actor is busy with his two home productions, Sukh and Seva. Interestingly, he has penned both the film scripts himself.
