Krushna Abhishek who is a comedian and plays the role of Sapna in The Kapil Sharma Show has yet again decided to opt-out of an episode of the widely popular show which featured his uncle, Govinda, as a guest. For those who don’t know this, Krushna & Govinda’s relationship has soured over the years, culminating in a public fallout in the year 2018.
When Krushna came to know that Govinda was going to be part of the episode, he opted to sit out. The same situation had arisen last year when Govinda & his wife & daughter had visited the show.
Talking about the episode with actor Govinda, 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.”
He further added:
“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.”
Abhishek said that he attempted to get in touch with his Mama Govinda during the time when Covid-19 lockdown was imposed, however, he received no response from him.
