Govinda REACTS to Krushna Abhishek’s ‘defamatory’ comments
Govinda in an interview, reacted to his nephew Krushna Abhishek's 'defamatory' comments.
Govinda was recently featured on the Diwali special episode of The Kapil Sharma Show, in which his nephew Krushna Abhishek is also a part of it, however, he decided to not performing in his presence, and in an interview, the comedian also said that he had a strong relationship with Govinda, but the enmity affected him badly. Now, the Dulhe Raja actor reacted to his nephew’s ‘defamatory’ comments.
In an interview with the Times Of India, Govinda 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.”
Krushna earlier said that he tried to get in touch with Govinda during the COVID-19 lockdown and even when his son was ‘fighting for his life’ in the hospital. Now, Govinda spoke about the allegation and said, “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 (Krushna’s wife) 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 (Krushna’s sister), which he has forgotten to mention.”
Govinda 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.”
Lastly, he added that he will from now onwards keep a distance from Krushna and his family. 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.”
