Veteran producer Mehboob Khan brought him to Mumbai in 1937 and cast him in ''Ek Hi Raasta'' as the leading man. Arun was notable for acting in [[Mehboob Khan]]'s ''[[Aurat (1940 film)|Aurat]]'' (1940). Govinda's mother, Nazeem who was Muslim had converted to Hinduism and adopted the name [[Nirmala Devi]].<ref>{{cite news|url=http://www.sunday-guardian.com/masala-art/govinda-dancing-with-david |title=Govinda: Dancing with David |publisher=Sunday-guardian.com |date= |accessdate=2013-03-24}}</ref> Arun and Nirmala first met during the making of the film ''Savera'', in which they were cast opposite each other.
