New developments have been reported every day since Raj Kundra was detained by the Mumbai Crime Branch. Raj’s wife, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, has filed a defamation lawsuit in the High Court. The case is filed over malicious information posted on social media sites. According to Bar and Bench, the actress has not only launched a defamation action against media outlets, but she has also criticized social media applications like Facebook and Instagram for spreading defamatory information about her. Shilpa Shetty has previously identified 29 media persons and outlets for ‘doing false reporting and maligning her image’ in Raj Kundra pornography case.
Raj Kundra was taken into prison on July 19 and released on July 23. Raj and Shilpa Shetty’s opulent Juhu house was also searched by Mumbai authorities, who interrogated the Bollywood star. Shilpa is said to have stated in her statement that her husband is not involved in the production of pornographic material. She further clarified that erotica is not the same as porn, which her husband has been accused of distributing.
Apart from the pornographic case, SEBI has also fined Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra. Viaan Industries Ltd, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, and Ripu Sudan Kundra have been fined Rs 3 lakh. The markets regulator has fined them for disclosure failures and subsequent violations of insider trading rules.
Sherlyn Chopra recently claimed that Raj Kundra attacked her, and she sought for anticipatory bail to avoid arrest. However, her anticipatory bail motion in the pornographic case involving billionaire Raj Kundra was denied by the Mumbai Sessions court.
