"People don't know that I was born due to his mannat. I was born 10 years after my parent's marriage. My mother raised Chi Chi mama. She used to cradle him and he loved him. My mother wanted him to be a star. When my mother passed away and her body was lifted, I heard, they found Govinda mama's photo. Chi Chi Mama went to Vaishno devi to offer his prayers that if my mother has a baby, he will carry the baby on his shoulders for six hours and visit the temple. Amazingly, in a year I was conceived. When I was four or five year old, he carried my on his shoulders to Vaishno Devi."

Recalling all the things Sunita had done for him, Krushna says that he knows how much his mami loves him, and that is why she can scold him whenever she thinks he is going out of track. Krushna explained:

"I just want my kids to play with my mama, mami. I miss that. I know even he remembers me. My mami is a wonderful woman. My mama is my blood but I don't share the same blood with my mami. But she let us stay with them for 7-8 years. Who will tolerate that? My aunt has loved and supported us. I remember she had given me a room and carved my name in the soap box. She loved me so much and that's why she has every right to scold me. She can slap me. They have all the right."

At the end of the interview, Krushna Abhishek also addressed the much-made claim that it was his mama, Govinda, who had helped him make his name in the entertainment industry. Refuting these claims and speculations, Krushna clearly stated that his mama had never helped him in terms of his profession, as he had always wanted him to make a name for himself all on his own. However, Krushna added that it was his father, Atmaprakash Sharma, who had sold their house for his dreams and had decided to take the whole family into a single room. Praising his father for his sacrifices, an emotional Krushna said:

"It was an amazing journey for me in films. People think I am Govinda's nephew. Govinda was a superstar and he still is. He was his own league. People thought, since I am his nephew, I am born with a silver spoon. I didn't even have a bowl. It's a different fact that he helped us a lot. I would go to shoots with Chi Chi mama. I wanted to become an actor since childhood. My father sold off his Juhu flat because we didn't have money. We then took a 1 room kitchen and started living there."

On the professional front, Krushna Abhishek is currently seen in the popular comedy-reality show, The Kapil Sharma Show!
