The relationship between actors Krushna Abhishek and Govinda has been the talking point in media over the years now. It has been a topsy-turvy ride indeed where they had problems but patched up later and then again had a fallout. This recent one has been going on for almost two years now and it gained more mileage when Abhishek refused to perform in the episode of The Kapil Sharma Show Season 2 where Govinda made an appearance.
Going on to give his take and seemingly rest this once and for, Govinda opened up about it in an interview with Times of India. He said, “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.”
He added, “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.”
Concluding Govinda said, “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.”
