Sharing a story from his childhood, Govind Namdev revealed, ‘The character I play in OMG – I saw such a man when I was 10-11 years old. There was a group of us. Went to a river bank with friends. I studied in Sagar till class VII. On Sunday we were frozen plucking guavas, groundnuts and chickpeas and enjoying by the river. We used to burn some grass and roast chickpeas and groundnuts and were enjoying while it was damp. We used to drink water there on the screen of the pond. One day a sadhu scolded us and said, ‘I use this water to bathe my Shivling. How dare you make this water angry?’
