Being a celebrity parent is never easy as it is hard for them to protect their child from the negativity of the world. No matter how hard you try, they are always under media and fans scrutiny. Their single spotting becomes the talk of the town and their single gesture makes or breaks their image. This is probably the reason why celebrities try to hide their kids from the limelight and public eye. Amidst the negativity surrounding them, sometimes, some pieces of news are hard for the parents to tackle and they end up lashing out at the media. Raj Kundra also did this, when he witnessed a fake article about his son, Viaan Raj Kundra.

Breaking million hearts, Shilpa Shetty had decided to add 'Kundra' to her name by marrying a businessman, Raj Kundra. It was on May 21, 2012, when the couple was blessed with a baby boy, whom they had named Viaan Raj Kundra. On Viaan's eighth birthday, Raj Kundra had expressed how proud he is of his ‘grounded’ son, Viaan Kundra, and with an array of pictures, he had written, “Happy birthday my dear son my life my heartbeat. Thank you God for the most amazing kind caring and adorable son. @viaanrajkundra Viaan I am so proud of you. May you stay blessed and grounded always. Love your best friend and your Papa xx.” Raj had also posted a video, giving a glimpse of his little creativity for his son, Viaan on his birthday in lockdown. He had captioned it as “A little bit of fun and creativity during lockdown for my Son. Happy Birthday Again Birthdays in Lockdown!”
Not only Shilpa, but Raj also dotes on Viaan and can go to any extent to shower love on him. Viaan might have been born in the world of luxury and his parents might walk extra miles to shower love on him, but sometimes, a few articles take undue advantage of the same and write misleading stories. A magazine had published an article that Shilpa and Raj bought a Lamborghini sports car for their son, Viaan on his 8th birthday. Now, Raj Kundra has slammed the article sharing the link on his Twitter handle. Raj called it ‘badly researched article’ and clarified that the car he had gifted to his son was a toy car. His tweet can be read as “Such a credible magazine but such a badly researched article! Kindly mention the Lambo was a toy Lambo car! #fakenews slow clap.” Take a look:
Shilpa Shetty Kundra has always talked about giving normal life to her son, Viaan Raj Kundra in every interview. In an interaction with the Bombay Times, Shilpa had talked about what a normal life for a celebrity kid looks like! She was quoted as saying, "I’m from non-film background and I come from a middle-class family, where our holidays were spent in Matheran, not London. Today, I am not apologetic about being able to take Viaan on a vacation to London. I make it a point that he understands and appreciates everything he has. Raj and I think he should not grow up with a sense of entitlement." (Don't Miss: Yash's Wife Radhika Pandit Pens A Lovely Birthday Wish For Him, Wonders Why He Is So Perfect For Her)
Further, Shilpa had revealed that whenever her son, Viaan wants something extra, he has to dig out his money bank. She had also mentioned that he picks his own plate to the kitchen when he is done with the food. In her words, "If he wants something extra, he has to dig into his piggy box for it. He has to pick his own plate and take it to the kitchen. We follow some basic rules to ensure he understands that everything in life has to be earned, and nothing and no one can be taken for granted. He also knows that he has to adjust with the rest of things that are a part of his life because he’s our son."
