Controversial businessman Raj Kundra has been arrested two weeks ago in a pornography case and the investigation is on. His bail petition got rejected and he is sent to judicial custody. There are a lot of rumors going on about the case and the top actress stepped out for the first time and issued an official statement for the same. She wanted the people not to spread about the case and she wanted everyone to respect the privacy of her family. She requested the people to consider the privacy of the children. Here is the official statement of Shilpa Shetty that she posted on her social media handle:
Yes! The past few days have been challenging, on every front. There have been a lot of rumors 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 were posted, 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 ongoing 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. We don’t deserve a media trial. Please let the law take its course. Satyamev Jayate!
With Positivity and Gratitude,
Shilpa Shetty Kundra.
