Govardhan Asrani (born 1 January 1941), popularly known simply as Asrani, is an actor in Indian films whose Bollywood career has spanned over 35 years. He was born in a middle class Sindhi family. His father migrated to Jaipur after the Partition of India and opened a shop selling carpets. He has four sisters and three brothers: two elder and one younger. Asrani was highly uninterested in business and very weak in mathematics. He completed his matriculation from St. Xaviers School and did his graduation from Rajasthan College, Jaipur. He simultaneously worked as a voice artist on All India Radio, Jaipur, to pay for his education. His ultimate aim was to become an actor. He is married to actress Manju (Bansal) Asrani.

He began to learn acting from Sahitya Kalbhai Thakkar from 1960 to 1962. In 1962, he traveled to Bombay (now Mumbai) and began to seek opportunities to act. In 1963, Hrishikesh Mukherjee advised him to learn acting professionally.In 1964 Asrani joined the Film Institute in Poona (now Film and Television Institute of India, Pune) and finished his course in 1966. He impressed many others and made his acting break in 1967 with a Gujrati movie opposite budding actress Waheeda (not Waheeda Rahman; the Hindi actress). He acted in four other movies, mainly as actor or supporting actor in Gujrati from 1967 to 1969 before landing his first Hindi movie role in Umang, a low-budget movie, which had Subhash Ghai and Paintal. In 1969, he was offered the role of Rajesh Khanna's friend in Aradhana, but Rajesh was more comfortable with an older person and preferred Sujit Kumar.

The 1990s and 2000s saw Asrani in a number of blockbuster films like Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander, Hera Pheri, Chup Chup Ke, Hulchul and Deewane Huye Pagal. He was an integral part of comedies by Sajid Nadiadwala or Priyadarshan, but his roles are very minor and he has a very short screen space.Asrani has acted in over 300 films over the last 35 years and also in close to 150 Gujrati films.
