Shilpa Shetty opens up on Raj Kundra controversy!
During the launch event of her upcoming movie Nikamma's trailer in Mumbai on 17th May, the Dhadkan actress Shilpa was asked about her recent 'tough phase' in her life, in which she was questioned in relation to her husband-businessman Raj Kundra's arrest in the alleged case last year.
On this, the Baazigar actress rejected to directly talk about the controversy. She said that the event was about her latest film and not her personal life. Later, she also spoke about going through a difficult phase. Shilpa opened up about her character in the movie and disclosed how she braved the storm. Shilpa told, "My avatar in the movie, rising above everything and playing a ‘superwoman’, I think we all have played this very strong character in our real lives. Many of us don’t talk about it. We’ve all been very strong and we’ve braved the storm, and I think it is time to celebrate newer beginnings and positivity.”
For the information, Raj Kundra was arrested on July 19 in Mumbai, following which he was sent to judicial custody till July 23, 2021, and during those tough times, Shilpa had requested people to respect their privacy, particularly that of her children. Raj was granted bail on a surety of Rs 50,000 on September 20, 2021, after being in custody for almost two months.
Her film Nikamma is produced by Sony Pictures International Productions and Sabbir Khan Films and directed by Sabbir Khan. It is slated to release in theatres on June 17 and will be witnessing a box office clash with Ayushmann Khurrana and Rakul Preet Singh's Doctor G.
