Recently, Govinda entered in the Kapil Sharma’s show with his wife and daughter and Krushna Abhishek is upset with this. He wanted that Govinda should appear on his show “Comedy Nights Live” first. But that can’t happen. Miffed Krushna stated, “Somehow our dates didn’t seem to match. I messaged him again four days ago, but to my shock, I learnt that he and his wife were shooting with Kapil on Wednesday. I was aghast as I expected him to support his nephew.
He further said, “I cracked a joke saying “Maine Govinda ko apna mama rakha hai” (I have kept Govinda as my uncle) on my show, which did not go down well with him. I tried to reason with him saying that it wasn’t in bad taste. In fact, it only raises my status by calling him my mama. It wasn’t derogatory at all. I have no qualms on being addressed as Govinda’;s nephew; it is like my second identity. A star is free to
go on other shows, but being family, I expected him to come to my show first. He is behaving like a superstar now and not my Chi Chi mama”
Though Krushna had tried to convince his uncle, Govinda hadn’t forgiven him and choose to appear on his nephew’s rival’s show. According to the superstar, “Krushna has been making money by insulting others on television. I was extremely upset with the ‘Mama Rakha hai’ remark and summoned him home”says the actor, elaborating, “I told him that he should refrain from making such statements in
the garb of gags as they could be humiliating. But Sunita told me to let him work and I relented as that’s how he is making money. I am used to reading good, bad and ugly things about myself, but it’s annoying to have a family member making a personal interaction public. That’s unacceptable. I can’t trust him anymore.”
To make his point clear, he said further, “I have seen the way Krushna roasts the Khans — Salman and Shah Rukh. He is very respectful. He respects the ‘good’ time of a person and not the artiste. Maybe, I will go on his show when my time is good. I can’t change my nature overnight to suit the format of a show. I understand that’s his professional hazard, but I can’t be a part of it.”
So, it seems this uncle-nephew relationship is turning sour due to the Kapil Sharma’s show!
