New Delhi: Apparently Govinda chose 'The Kapil Sharma Show' over his nephew Krushna Abhishek's show 'Comedy Nights Live' and this left the latter fuming.

According to a report in the Indian Express, Govinda went to 'The Kapil Sharma Show' to promote his upcoming movie 'Jagga Jasoos' on Wednesday along with his wife Sunita and daughter Tina and this left his nephew Krushna all angry.

Krushna was quoted as saying: "Somehow our dates didn't seem to match. I messaged him again four days ago, but to my shock, I learned that he and his wife were shooting with Kapil on Wednesday. I was aghast as I expected him to support his nephew."

Whereas Govinda has a different version of the story.

Govinda was quoted as saying, ''Krushna has been making money by insulting others on television. I was extremely upset with the Mama rakha hai remark and summoned him home. I told him that he should refrain from making such statements in the garb of gags as they could be humiliating. But Sunita told me to let him work and I relented as that’s how he is making money. I am used to reading good, bad and ugly things about myself, but it’s annoying to have a family member making a personal interaction public. That’s unacceptable. I can’t trust him anymore.''

And this is how Krushna reacted to the remarks made by chi chi mama:

''I cracked a joke saying ‘Maine Govinda ko apna mama rakha hai’ (I have kept Govinda as my uncle) on my show, which did not go down well with him (Who is he referring to?). I tried to reason with him as it wasn’t in bad taste. In fact, it only raises my status by calling him my mama. It wasn’t derogatory at all. I have no qualms on being addressed as Govinda’s nephew; it is like my second identity. A star is free to go on other shows, but being family, I expected him to come to my show first. He is behaving like a superstar now and not my Chi Chi mama.''
