It’s been quite long since the cold war between the actor Krushna Abhishek and his ‘mama’ Govinda was out in the open. It now seems that the fight is only getting uglier with both of them not wanting to see each others’ face under any circumstances.
Recently, Krushna has refused to appear on The Kapil Sharma Show since his ‘mama’ Govinda was going to appear on it as a guest celebrity for the Diwali special episode.
“Yes, I refused to do the episode featuring my Mama Govinda, as there are some differences between us, and I didn’t want any of our issues to affect the show. For comedy to be effective you need to work in a warm friendly atmosphere. Laughter can only be generated in the midst of good relations.”
Krushna said this in an interview.
“I love Govinda mama a lot. And I know he loves me as much. Which is why he has the right to be upset with me. And I love him too much to face him now when things are the way they are between us. I wouldn’t able to stop my tears. So, it’s best not to do the episode. I’ve been very close to him. I’ve stayed at his home with him and his family. Jitna hi pyaar hai, utni hi duree ho gayee hai (Despite our love, there is this distance between us).”
He further added.
The major fallout took place in the year 2018 over a social media post by Kashmera Shah (Krushna’s wife) who talked about ‘people who dance for money’. This was apparently ‘misunderstood’ by Govinda’s wife Sunita as she though it was being directed to her & Govinda. The two families never looked each other in the eye after this incident took place.
It is for the same reason that when Govinda was to make a special appearance on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, Krushna wasn’t going to be a part of it.
Govinda did not miss any chance to take an indirect dig at his nephew Krushna Abhishek. Though he was in a jolly mood throughout the show, he took a sly dig at Krushna when ‘Chandu Chaiwala’ a.k.a. Chandan Prabhakar & Sumona Chakravarti a.k.a. ‘Bhoori’ were performing their act on the show.
After Kapil Sharma introduced them as ‘kaamchor’ artists, Chandu went on to tell the actor that he pushed Kapil & brought him to Mumbai from Amritsar and it’s really amazing to see him have his own show now. Govinda suddenly gave a witty response to Chandu and said that he helped Kapil get work in a way, Govinda said
“Aur tujhe bhale hi yeh kaam de na de, tere bhaanje ko zarur dega (He might or might not give work to you, but he will certainly give work to your nephew.”
Earlier, Krushna told Bombay Times
“I learned about Chi Chi mama coming on the show around 10 days ago. Since Sunita mami wasn’t accompanying him, the team thought that I would have no qualms performing. However, the incident has left a bad taste in my mouth. Last year, she didn’t want me to perform in front of them, but this time, I had reservations.”
“I had a strong relationship with mama, and the enmity has affected me badly. When the relationship between two people is strained, it’s difficult to perform comedy. Besides, mama might take offence to my jokes. Achhi comedy ke liye set ka mahaul achha hona chahiye (good comedy needs conducive environment). I can vouch that it would have been like a house on fire even if I had performed as Krushna and not Sapna (the character he portrays on the show) with mama. I could have paid tribute to him on the show.”
