'Need proof to prove that you are right,' says Govinda on recording statements on phone after son Yashvardhan Ahuja's car accident


Govinda's son Yashvardhan Ahuja met with a car accident on Wednesday night, reportedly around 8.30 pm in Juhu. The accident is said to have taken place near Amitabh Bachchan's Pratiksha bungalow. According to a leading daily's report, a car was on its way to pick up late filmmaker BR Chopra's grandson Rishabh and it rammed into Yashvardhan's Mini Cooper from one side. Yashvardhan was the only person present in his vehicle at the time of the accident and was said to be on his way to meet a friend. He has reportedly suffered injuries on his left hand while the driver of the Chopra family's car is safe. Govinda, who rushed to the accident spot on receiving a call from Yashvardhan, told a leading daily that the cops were informed immediately. The actor further added that he has proof of the accident and has recorded the statements of witnesses on his phone. Govinda said that Rishabh and Yash Raj Films' production manager were at the police station to apologise and looked into the matter personally. 

"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 were there. They apologised for what had happened. Mujhe koi shadyantra 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," Govinda told.

Govinda added that he was taken aback when Aditya Chopra and Pamela Chopra didn't call him. "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," he added.

Talking about the accident, Yashvardhan said, "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."
