After Govinda's clarification over recent tweets, Kamaal R Khan says 'I was not talking about you' |

After Govinda's reaction to his recent tweet, actor-turned-film critic Kamaal R. Khan on Thursday clarified his tweet was not for the 'Partner' actor, but for his friend whose real name is Govinda.

Govinda on Wednesday released an official statement after KRK shared tweets allegedly thanking him for his love and support amid his ongoing legal tussle with Bollywood actor Salman Khan. Govinda said he is not in touch with KRK for years and the person mentioned in the latter's tweet could be someone else with the same name, as he is not tagged in it.

Reacting to the same, KRK on Thursday tweeted: "Please note Mr. Govind Arun Ahuja @govindaahuja21, I didn’t tag you because I was not talking about you. I was talking about my friend, who’s real name Govinda. So I can’t help if media people make news about you."

For the unversed, on May 29, KRK had tweeted, "Govinda Bhai thank you for your love and support. I won't disappoint you!"

His tweet came at a time when he has been involved in a legal battle with Bollywood star Salman Khan.

Salman filed a defamation case against KRK following the release of his new film 'Radhe'. While KRK has claimed the suit was an outcome to his review of the film, Salman's legal team has declared the defamation case pertains to personal attacks, particularly comments KRK made about the star's NGO, Being Human.

Meanwhile, Govinda recently shared: "I read some media reports about me backing KRK. I am not in touch with KRK for years altogether -- no meetings, no phone calls, and no messages. It could be some other person by the same name as I am not being tagged in the tweet. In fact, the self-proclaimed critic had spoken and written unfit statements about me and my movies in the past."

Calling it an "agenda" to "create nuisance" amid the pandemic, the actor added: "I do not even know in depth the exact problems between Salman and KRK but my name has been dragged in the matter. A similar attempt was made by another film critic Komal Nahata, who also took my name in an issue concerning Kartik Aaryan losing a couple of films. Both the attempts seem like an agenda by a demented mind aimed to create nuisance amidst the unprecedented pandemic times."
