The cold war between Bollywood’s iconic dancing star Govinda and his nephew television’s prominent entertainer Krushna Abhishek, shows no sign of abating. In fact the feud just got worse with Krushna staying away from the episode of Kapil Sharma’s show featuring Govindaas a special guest.
For those who came in late, Krushna is a regular entertainer on The Kapil Sharma Show. His staying away from the Govinda episode is a clear and public declaration of the mutual hostility that threatens to keep the Uncle-nephew apart.
When I contacted Krushna he confided, “Yes , I refused to do the episode featuring my MaamaGovida, as there are some differences between us, and I didn’t want any of our issues to affect the show. For comedy to be effective you need to work in a warm friendly atmosphere. Laughter can only be generated in the midst of good relations.”
It is rumoured that the differences between Krushna and his iconic uncle have more to do with the mutual differences between their wives .
Says Krushna affectionately, “I love Govinda Maama a lot. And I know he loves me as much. Which is why he has the right to be upset with me. And I love him too much to face him now when things are the way they are between us. I wouldn’t able to stop my tears. So it’s best not to do the episode. I’ve been very close to him. I’ve stayed at his home with him and his family. Jitna hi pyar hai, utni hi duree ho gayee hai(despite our mutual affection we are now distanced from one another).”
