When Govinda reached the spot, onlookers witness to the accident revealed on record to the actor that Chopra’s driver had broken the signal, jumped the red light, which led to the accident.
Govinda told us, “I reached the spot as soon as Yash called us saying what had happened. We informed the cops immediately and they reached there in no time. I asked people who saw the accident and they told me that the other driver had jumped the signal leading to the mishap. Aaj kal aisa zamana aa gaya hai ke even if you are right, you need proof to prove that you are right. So I have witnesses talking about it on camera. Yash was taken to the doctor for dressing as he sustained injuries on his hand. The air bags were a huge saviour! We reached Juhu police station after that. Rishabh Chopra and Akshay, who I suppose is a production manager with Yash Raj Films (YRF) were there. They apologised for what had happened. Mujhe koi shadyantra (conspiracy) nahi laga ismey, aur unhoney mere aatey hi maafi maangli, toh maine unko maaf kar diya. They also said that they will take care of the damages caused.”
The actor added, “It was a Chopra (Yash Raj) family car. I was taken aback that they haven’t called me so far. Maybe they will call later.”
Meanwhile, Govinda’s son Yash who is nursing his hand wounds, assured us that he is doing fine. “It was like a T zone where the accident occurred. Rishabh has been calling to check on me and he has been respectful throughout this ordeal. With the roads being relatively empty, people tend to speed off and that is what happened with the other driver. Had I not pressed the brakes, this could have been worse. We need to be careful. I am also grateful to the people around who immediately rushed towards me to see if I am okay.”
