Govinda’s recent appearance on The Kapil Sharma Show stirred up a controversy as Krushna Abhishek was missing in action. The uncle and nephew are on cold war from the past few years and haven’t made a public appearance together since then. On not being a part of TKKS episode, Krushna had said that he would have got emotional on seeing Govinda and it would have not been a smooth ride.
Now, finally, Govinda has broken his silence on Krushna’s statements. During an interaction with The Times of India, Govinda stated that he has been at the receiving end due to Krushna and Kashmera Shah’s alleged defamatory statements. The Hero No 1 actor stated, “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.”
Talking about Krushna’s allegations of Govinda not meeting his sons, the latter shared, “I went to see the babies in the hospital, along with my family, and even met the doctor and the nurse taking care of them. However, the nurse told me that Kashmera Shah did not want any family member to meet them. When we insisted, we were allowed to see the boys from a distance, and we returned home with a heavy heart. However, I strongly feel that Krushna does not know about this incident. Later, he came to our home with the kids and Arti Singh, which he has forgotten to mention.”
Govinda went on to say, “I’ve frequently been at the receiving end of Krushna and Kashmera’s defamatory comments mostly in the media and some on their shows and stage performances. I don’t understand what they are gaining from all this. My relationship with Krushna was strong since the time he was a child; my family and people from the industry have witnessed it. I feel that washing dirty linen in public is an indication of insecurity and allows outsiders to take advantage of misunderstandings in a family.”
He concluded, “Through this statement, I would like to announce that I shall maintain a graceful distance from now on and urge those who dislike me to do the same. Every family has misunderstandings and problems, but to discuss them in the media may cause irreparable damage. I am perhaps the most misunderstood person, but so be it. My late mother would always tell me, ‘Neki kar aur dariya mein daal’. That’s what I intend to do.”
