Things are not well between Govinda and Krushna Abhishek for a while now. The Hero No. 1 actor was upset when Abhishek cracked a joke at a comedy show about how he has kept him as his 'Mama.' When he was the guest on The Kapil Sharma Show recently, Abhishek didn't arrive for his performance and even spoke about it in an interview.

He even spoke about how Govinda didn't come to see his twins when they were in the hospital. And now, Govinda has issued an official statement to clarify the matter and reveal his side of the story. His statement read- "I am utterly sad to release this media statement, but I strongly believe that its high time that the truth must come out. I read the news on the front page of a leading daily about my nephew Krushna Abhishek not performing on a popular television show as I was invited as a guest there. He chose to opt-out as he had some reservations."

It added, "Later he went ahead and stated in the media about his belief on our relationship. This statement had defamatory comments and was issued with only a little thought. It had a snowball effect as it was voyeuristic in nature. It was erroneously alleged by Krushna that I did not go to see his twins. I along with my family went to see his twins in the hospital and met the doctor (Doctor Awasthi) and the nurse taking care of them. However, the nurse told me that the mother of the kids - Kashmira Shah never wanted any of the family members to come and see the surrogate babies."

The actor also spoke how he has been a scapegoat in the couple's defamatory comments and statements and this is what he had to say, "Be it Krushna or Kashmira - I have been a scapegoat of their defamatory comments and statements against me frequently - most of them in the media and some in the shows and performances that they do."

He continued, "I do not understand why is this slander being done repetitively and what is it that they are gaining from the same. My relationship with Krushna was very strong since the time he was a small child. My adulation for him was unparalleled and my family and people from the industry are a witness to the same. I strongly believe that washing dirty linen in public is an indication of insecurity and allows outsiders to take advantage of a family's misunderstandings."

This is how the actor ended his statement, "Through this statement, I would like to mention that I shall maintain a graceful distance now onwards. And since I am so bad as mentioned in the media reports - I 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 and, I dislike the same - indeed I am very sad to clarify this through the media. I am perhaps the most misunderstood person, but if it is like that - then so be it. My mother always taught me 'Neki Kar Aur Dariya Mein Daal Govinda'."
