Ex Machachari actor Malik alias Govi says working with his mum as his manager has grounded him.

According to Govi, if he worked with someone else he might not be where he is.

Speaking during an interview with Presenter Ali, the actor shared,

"Working with my mum has been a good thing, If it were not for her maybe pride would have gotten into my head.

She advises me on what to do and what not to do. Sometimes I get jobs that I might have taken just because I love acting.

But she insists if they are not paying me a certain amount I should not take it as it will lower my value."

Govi says it has not been easy getting rid of the character Govi as people want to constantly connect him to it.

He is currently involved in a new project and hopes people can realize he is much more talented than they think.

"It's not been easy getting off the character Govi as I started in 2008-2019.

In 2008 I was still young and it became hard to differentiate between Govi and Malik, It gave me trouble trying to trace myself.

I am trying to do different things so people can know me as Malik. Playing Govi was easy because I had lived that life.

Govi shaped me and am forever grateful for that."

In conclusion, he said

"I was not raised with a silver spoon I have hustled to be where I am."
