The Kapil Sharma Show has triggered a full-blown controversy after Krushna Abhishek decided to not perform in front of his uncle Govinda when he appeared on the Sony TV comedy show over the weekend with his daughter. What deepened the controversy further was Govinda’s dig at Krushna in front of Archana Puran Singh and Kapil Sharma during the show. The topic dominated social media conversations after Krushna shared a photo of his wife Kashmera Shah with an innocuous caption.
In his defence, Krushna said that his decision to stay away from The Kapil Sharma Show was to avoid any bad blood on a show which is meant to bring a smile on people’s faces. He told The Bombay Times that there was confusion amongst the TKSS team about his comfort level with Govinda.
“I learnt about Chi Chi mama coming on the show around 10 days ago. Since Sunita mami wasn’t accompanying him, the team thought that I would have no qualms performing. However, the incident has left a bad taste in my mouth. Last year, she didn’t want me to perform in front of them, but this time, I had reservations,” Krushna was quoted as saying.
The famous actor-comedian added that even though he enjoyed a strong relationship with Govinda, his equation with his aunt (Sunita) hasn’t been the same since her last public outbursts.
“I had a strong relationship with mama, and the enmity has affected me badly. When the relationship between two people is strained, it’s difficult to perform comedy. Besides, mama might take offence to my jokes… I can vouch that it would have been like a house on fire even if I had performed as Krushna and not Sapna (his character on The Kapil Sharma Show) with mama. I could have paid tribute to him on the show,” Krushna added.

Krushna revealed that Govinda did not care to visit him in the hospital when one of his sons was fighting for his life. “They didn’t even come to see my twins in the hospital, not even when one of them was fighting for his life. I did call him, but there was no response. How long can I keep trying to resolve our issues,” Krushna said.
The controversy didn’t end here. Many fans asked him about his absence from the show featuring uncle Govinda. No sooner did Krushna share a photo of his wife, one fan asked, “I had one question to you sir that why don’t you come in govinda sirs episode.Im qurious to get answer on this (sic).” Another fan commented, “ek mayaan me do talwaar nahi rakhte.”
