The battle between Govinda and Krushna Abhishek, the once-powerful mama-bhanja duo, is far from done. Their feud has lasted three years, and they have failed to resolve their issues. The latest development is that Krushna has refused to appear in an upcoming episode of The Kapil Sharma Show, in which Govinda and his wife, Sunita Ahuja, will appear as celebrity guests. This is the second time Krushna has declined to appear in an episode with his mother. Krushna did not appear on the comedy show with Govinda and Sunita in November of last year.
Talking about this, Krushna told TOI, “Since the past 15 days, I have been shuttling between Raipur and Mumbai to shoot for my film and Kapil’s show. I would always go that extra mile to adjust my dates for the show. However, when I learnt that they would be appearing as celebrity guests in the upcoming episode, I didn’t want to be a part of it, so I didn’t try to adjust my dates. I believe both parties don’t wish to share a stage.” He added, “ Yeh meri taraf se bhi hoga aur unki taraf se bhi hoga. Also, it’s a comedy show. Pata nahi kaun si baat lekar badi baat bann jaye aur phir wohi sab hoga ki aisa bol diya waisa bol diya. I didn’t want to create an issue. I am sure that the audience waits in anticipation for my gig when Govindaji comes on the show, but I realised that it was better not to perform. Artistes bahut emotional hote hain. Unko kaam karna chahiye par aise bhi nahi jahaan dono ko ek doosre ko dekhna nahi hai. Things are still the same between us and issues haven’t been resolved.”
Despite their differences, Krushna claims he has never questioned Kapil Sharma and the creative team about their decision to invite Govinda.
He said, “Why should the team spoil their relationship with Govinda? It’s a family matter…an internal matter. Kapil is extremely fond of him and shares a great bond with him. I wouldn’t want Kapil to spoil his equation with him.”
When Govinda, Sunita, and their daughter Tina Ahuja appeared on Kapil Sharma’s show in 2019, Krushna was noticeably absent, presumably because Sunita did not want to share the stage with him.
