|Controversies||• He blamed the makers of "Comedy Circus" show for declaring Kapil Sharma as a winner very often in order to please Kapil so that he sticks with the show, instead of the merit of the performance. Krushna said,
The one who deserved to win should have won and this time I deserved the victory. During one of the previous seasons, they declared a tie between Kapil and me just to please him so that he sticks to the show. I have no complaints with Kapil. He is very talented and I am a huge fan of his. My differences are with the production house and I have decided that I won’t work with producer Vipul Shah or Comedy Circus again.”

Then they came and it was a fantastic episode. But then, Kashmera tweeted something wrong for my sister. Govinda thought it was for them. I tried to clarify, but mami got angry. Then I decided to not get in between mami and Kashmera. Then it was the first birthday of my kid. They didn’t come for it, and then I got upset. My mother has raised Govinda ji, so I have all the rights to be upset with him.” Hindustan Times

I’ve become more responsible. I’ve never been an actor who relies on his producers. I’ve always been in such a position that I can walk off anytime. I never had the fear of a show not working or being ousted from it. But after having kids, I get that feeling. I’m no longer as carefree; there is a fear that keeps me in check.”
- He shared why he was named Abhishek, in an interview, he said,
My mother was a huge fan of Amitabh Bachchan. And when I was born. She named me after Amitabh’s son. But when I came into the industry, people used to say, ‘Abhishek is other hero’s name, so you change your name’. So, I rechristened myself as Krushna. During the filming of ‘Bol Bachchan’ I told Abhishek Bachchan that I was named Abhishek because of him and that I had to change my name because of him.
- He uses the name “Krushna” instead of “Krishna” on the advice of a numerologist.
- When he was a kid, he appeared on the poster of the Bollywood film, ‘Hatya’ (1988) holding a leg of Govinda.
- Krushna shared a photo on his Instagram with Farah Khan and wrote the caption,
Today, I found a very old picture of mine and Farah ma’am. We were neighbours. Really miss my childhood at Juhu Tara road, our filmy building. My father was a vegetarian so I used to chup chap eat non-veg at Farah mam’s house. This is our home picture. Love you, Farah didi.”
- He talked about his struggling days, in an interview, he said,
It is not like that, I had to struggle a lot. If the background was of any help, then I would have been launched by David Dhawan; so filmy connections do not help… it is your own struggle. My career in films did not take off well so I chose to do TV. I knew success is not easy here and I have worked hard for it. After a successful film or a TV show, the following show or film movie might fail, and one needs the courage to face failure. My uncle (Govinda) never recommended my name to anyone. He used to say, ‘If you fall in a pit, only then will you get up on your own’. Today when he sees my success, he feels very proud. I never let stardom to my head because I know people will push away a person who was famous 10 years ago to take a picture with the current star.”
- In an interview, he talked about his poor financial condition, he said,
Asserting that he is self-respecting Krishna says, “Even when my father had to sell our flat due to financial problems, I did’nt ask help from Govinda uncle. Today, I’ve bought my own flat. When my Bhojpuri producers hinted that I should get my uncle in for a special appearance, I told them that I’d come up on my own steam rather than by exploiting my uncle.”
- He is a dog lover and has a pet dog, Boo.
