This afternoon, SpotboyE.com met up with Krushna Abhishek for an EXCLUSIVE chat about his upcoming movie, Teri Bhabhi Hai Pagle, but the conversation soon veered off to his infamous spat. Krushna let in that he strongly feels his wife Kashmera should apologise to mami, Sunita Ahuja. The comedian also admitted that he possibly overreacted while talking about his mama and mami (Govinda and Sunita).
Speaking to a leading daily, Krushna had earlier said, “Chi Chi mama was upset when during an episode of my comedy show, I said, ‘Main koi chhota aadmi nahi hoon, maine Govinda ko mama rakha hua hai’. I can’t fathom why they take humour so seriously.” It was this statement of Krushna’s that did not go down well with Govinda’s wife Sunita.
What does Krushna feel about the episode in hindsight? Here are some excerpts from our interview with him...
Will you stop making a reference to Govinda in your comedy now?
Naam juda hua hai na so baatien hoti hi hain! Like in such interviews also people ask me about him. I don't feel I can alienate myself from him. And as far our relationship goes, I’m like a child to them. Sometimes I overreact, but I feel I have the right to do so. It happens in every family – you fight, and you get back together also. So, now I am just waiting for everything to get back on track. Let’s see when he (Govinda) calls me.
Have't you tried to sit down with him and sort everything out?
I have been unable to catch hold of him (laughs). He went to London after the incident and then he got busy with a film shoot. I seriously want to reconcile with him. I don’t mind if my mami gives 5-6 gaalis, it’s her right to do so. I have said this in the earlier interview also, I have stayed with her as a kid and she has taken utmost care of me. So I understand that she might be feeling more hurt. Knowingly, or unknowingly, I got dragged into the matter. After which unkowingly I also got involved.
Isn’t Sunita upset with your wife Kashmera too?
What Kashmera wrote on Twitter irked Sunita mami, but the fact is that Kashmera wrote it for my sister, not mami. The timing was off! Yeh Kashmera se galti ho gayi. Kissi ke bhi bare main Twitter par nahi likhna chahiye tha. She could have avoided it. Kashmera is at major fault here and she should apologise to mami, as my mami (Sunita) has been taking care of the whole family.
You said that Sunita has even asked her kids to not talk to you...
Yes, perhaps I was angry when I said that mami has instructed my cousins Narmada and Yash to not talk to me. But the fact is that they are actually not talking to me! Maybe they are feeling bad that someone wrote such things about their parents.
Is Kashmera also upset with the fact that Sunita didn’t come to see your newborn children even once?
They are also stubborn, na. You know how difficult it is to handle ladies (laughs).
So you think Govinda and you will resolve your differences?
Mama (Govinda) can slap me twice or abuse me. I am ok with that. Whatever he says I will listen to, quietly. And I think things will get resolved after that (laughs).
Do you think Govinda is responsible for your entry to the entertainment industry?
Definitely! It’s because of him that I got into this industry. I have learnt a lot from him. He has taught me a lot. But then I have also worked a lot to reach this position. I can't take that credit from him.
It’s been a week since Sunita and Krushna lashed out at each other, via interviews to a leading daily. “We have distanced ourselves from them and it won’t change ever,” Sunita had said adding, “Govinda and I were in London on that day (Krushna’s kids’ birthday bash), but that wasn’t the only reason why we didn’t attend the party. We were not invited for it and even if they had, we wouldn’t have gone. I have not seen his kids till date because of their parents’ misbehaviour. We have broken all ties with Krushna and Kashmera, and I swear I won’t initiate a patch-up this time around. I was a fool to do so two years ago. Govinda was right about them.”
Krushna had been equally bitter in his reponse, “Sunita mami has influenced the family to an extent that now even their children (Tina and Yashvardhan) don’t talk to us.”
Coming back to Krushna’s latest interview, which we ran above, we would definitely like to know what his wife Kashmera thinks of her hubby’s statement. Will she indeed knock on Govinda’s door to offer an apology?
