Comedian Krushna Abhishek says he was not allowed to share the stage with his uncle, actor Govinda, his wife Sunita and daughter Narmada during their recent appearance on The Kapil Sharma Show. Sunita had reportedly requested the makers to ensure they did not appear together on screen.

There has been bad blood between Govinda and Sunita and Krushna and his wife Kashmera Shah since Sunita took offence at a tweet Shah posted about “people who dance for money”. According to Krushna, he and his uncle patched things up six months ago, but Sunita is still upset with him. He told Bombay Times,

“I was told by the team that Sunita ji didn’t want me to be a part of the segment featuring them. So, I appeared in a gig before their entry. It was sad and shocking as my character (Sapna) is an integral part of the show. However, I chose not to create a ruckus because it was (my cousin) Narmada’s big day, and they had come to promote her album. If I could do this for my sister being the older brother, I expected the same from my elders. It’s so sad that while Chi Chi mama (Govinda) doesn’t want us to fight or talk about our issues in public, something like this has happened.”

Krushna clarified that Kashmera’s tweet, which was posted when Govinda and she appeared on Comedy Nights Bachao, wasn’t directed at her at all. “Time and again, I have tried to clarify that the post was for my sister Arti (Singh). I wish mama takes stock of things and we resolve our differences once and for all,” he said.
