New Delhi: Seems not all is well between the uncle and nephew pair Govinda and Krushna Abhishek. If media reports are to be believed, Govinda chose to go on the comedy show of Krushna’s rival Kapil Sharma, hence pissing the nephew off. The decision of Govinda to promote his upcoming Jagga Jasoos, on TKSS has reportedly made Krushna Abhishek upset.
Govinda is reportedly a part of Jagga Jasoos, an Anurag Basu directorial which features Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif in the lead. Apparently, to get the word out Govinda decided to kick start promotions that too with Kapil’s popular show. Govinda will be accompanied by his wife Sunita and daughter Tina.
While speaking to a leading daily about Govinda’s saddened nephew said,
“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.”
But, seems Krushna knows why his uncle ditched him. He went on,
“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”
Govinda, on the other hand, who seemed to enjoy every bit on TKSS; has a different story to tell. He said he does not approve of the comedy Krushna does and thinks it is derogatory. A leading daily quoted Govinda as,
Krushna has been making money by insulting others on television. I was extremely upset with the ‘Mama rakha hai’ remark and summoned him home. 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.”
“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,”
Well, this explains a lot about Govinda’s appearance on Kapil’s show. We wonder if the uncle nephew pair make peace any time soon.
