Actor Govinda, who had a public fall-out with his nephew Krushna Abhishek, talked about their fight in a recent interview. Govinda said that Krushna is a good person and is being made to do things against him. He also wondered if he was being punished for supporting Krushna.
Talking to Times of India, he said,”I really don’t know who is making him do it, otherwise, he is a good boy. Not only does he make fun but by doing it, he is spoiling my image. Whoever is behind it, we are seeing him do it.”
He further added, “See, I have been a victim of nepotism and it was around the time I stopped getting work. I saw Amitabh Bachchan struggle too; he would come on stage and people from the industry would walk away. Don’t know if I got punished for supporting him. They set him free but caught me instead.”
The uncle-nephew duo were engaged in a major war of words last year when Krushna had said in an interview that he will miss the episode of The Kapil Sharma Show where Govinda was invited. He had said that Govinda’s wife Sunita Ahuja did not want to share the stage with Krushna the last time they were on the show.
After this interview, Govinda had released a detailed statement saying that Krushna had made ‘defamatory’ statements against him. “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,” the statement read.
“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,” he had further said in the statement.
