Shilpa Shetty posts statement in Raj Kundra case: ‘Lot of unwanted aspersions cast on me…

Actor Shilpa Shetty has finally issued a statement weeks after her husband Raj Kundra’s arrest. The actor has said that she’s being subjected to a media trial. Many of her Bollywood colleagues have extended their support to her.

Actor Shilpa Shetty has finally released her statement weeks after husband Raj Kundra was arrested for allegedly creating and distributing pornographic content via mobile apps. The actor, who had approached the Bombay High Court seeking to restrain various media organizations from publishing any ‘incorrect, false, malicious and defamatory’ content against her, said in the statement that she is being subjected to a ‘media trial’.

On Saturday, hearing Shilpa’s plea, the Mumbai HC had refused to restrain media, commenting that it will “have a chilling effect on the freedom of press”. The court added, “Reportage of something based on what police have said is not defamatory.”

“Yes! The past few days have been challenging, on every front. There have been a lot of rumours and accusations. A lot of unwarranted aspersions on me cast by the media and (not so) well wishers as well. A lot of trolling/questions posed…. not only to me but also to my family,” the actor wrote in a statement that has been shared on social media.

Asking everyone to respect her privacy, she wrote, “I am a proud law-abiding Indian citizen and a hardworking professional for the last 29 years. People have put their faith in ME & I’ve never let anyone down. So, most importantly, I request you to respect my family’s and ‘my right’ to privacy in these times.

Shilpa Shetty’s statement got support from a number of her Bollywood colleagues such as Varun Dhawan, Dia Mirza, Jacqueline Fernandez, Farah Khan Kunder, Gauahar Khan and Rakul Preet Singh. Shilpa’s Nikamma co-star Abhimanyu Dassani also supported her on the post. This is the first time the film industry has come out in large numbers to support Shilpa after Raj Kundra’s arrest. Prior to this, only Hansal Mehta and Richa Chaddha had commented on the issue.

Yes! The past few days have been challenging, on every front. There have been a lot of rumours and accusations. A lot of unwarranted aspersions on me cast by the media and (not so) well wishers as well. A lot of trolling/questions posed…. not only to me but also to my family.

MY STAND… I HAVE NOT COMMENTED YET and will continue to refrain from doing so on this case as it is subjudice, so please stop attributing false quotes on my behalf.

Reiterating my philosophy of, as a celebrity “Never complain, never explain”. All I will say is, as it’s an on-going investigation, I have full faith in the Mumbai Police & the Indian judiciary. As a family, we are taking recourse to all our available legal remedies.
But, till then I humbly request you – especially as a MOTHER – to respect our privacy for my children’s sake and request you to refrain from commenting on half-baked information without verifying the veracity of the same.

I am a proud law-abiding Indian citizen and a hardworking professional for the last 29 years. People have put their faith in ME & I’ve never let anyone down. So, most importantly, I request you to respect my family’s and ‘my right’ to privacy in these times
