The feud between Actor Govinda and his nephew Comedian Krushna Abhishek doesn’t seem to settle. Krushna and Govinda have shared a rather strained relationship for the past few years. Krushna recently confirmed that he would not make an appearance in an upcoming episode of The Kapil Sharma show, which will feature his uncle Govinda and his wife and children.
“When I learnt that they would be appearing as celebrity guests in the upcoming episode, I didn’t want to be a part of it, so I didn’t try to adjust my dates. I believe both parties don’t wish to share a stage,” Krushna told Times of India.
Now Govinda’s wife, Sunita Ahuja has blasted Krushna and told a portal, “Last year in November, Govinda had issued a statement clarifying his stand and vowing to never discuss family issues in public. Like a thorough gentleman, he has kept the promise. I reiterate that we want to maintain a dignified distance, but it has reached a point where I feel the need to address the issue”. “Whenever we appear on the show, he says something about us in the media just for publicity. It makes no sense to discuss a family matter in public. Govinda may not respond or retaliate, but it upsets and infuriates me”, she added.
Sunita also claimed that Krushna’s talent is limited to using his mama’s name. “Is he not talented enough to give a hit show without using mama’s name?” she asked. She also ruled out the rift ending. “It will never happen. Three years ago, I had said that things could not be resolved till I am alive. You can’t misbehave, insult or take liberties in the name of family,” adding, “The issues will never get resolved and I don’t want to see his face ever again in my life.”
Last November, Krushna avoided the show and Govinda had issued a statement, accusing Krushna of making “defamatory” statements against him saying, “I am utterly sad to talk about this in public, but it is high time that the truth came out. I read the report about my nephew (Krushna Abhishek) not performing on a TV show as I was invited as a guest. He also spoke about our relationship. His statement had many defamatory comments and was thoughtless.”
