Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s husband, Raj Kundra was arrested on July 19, 2021, by the Mumbai police for his alleged involvement in the production and publication of pornographic content on various apps. After two months of his arrest and trial, it was on September 21, 2021, that Raj was released from jail. Since then, Raj has been maintaining a low profile and is seen hiding his face whenever he is spotted in public.
On September 20, 2021, after paying a surety of Rs. 50,000, Raj Kundra was granted bail in his alleged pornography case. After a lot of struggle, he was released from the Arthur Road jail on September 21, 2021, and was snapped by the paps. Raj had looked weak and dishevelled when he had got released.
Now, in a conversation with Pinkvilla, Raj Kundra talked about his pornography case and dismissed his association with any such production and distribution. Stating that the matter is subjudice and he is ready to face the trial, Raj said:
“After much contemplation, considering there are many misleading and irresponsible statements/ articles floating around and my silence has been misconstrued for weakness. I would like to start by stating that I have never been involved in the production and distribution of “pornography” ever in my life. This whole episode has been nothing but a witch hunt. The matter is subjudice so I cannot elucidate, but I am ready to face trial and have full faith in the judiciary, where the truth will prevail.”
Slamming media portals for pronouncing him ‘guilty’ because of which he and his family had to face a lot of trolling and had to deal with lots of pain, Raj Kundra added:
“However, unfortunately, I have already been pronounced “guilty” by the media and my family and I have been subjected to a lot of pain (continuously), violating my human and constitutional rights at different levels. The trolling, negativity and toxic public perception has been very debilitating.”
Raj Kundra further shared that he doesn’t hide his face because of shame but because he doesn’t want anyone to intrude into his privacy. He concluded:
“To set the record straight I do not hide my face in shame, but wish that my privacy is not intruded anymore with this continued media trial. My priority has always been my family, nothing else matters at this juncture. I believe it’s every person’s inalienable right to live with dignity and I request the same. Thank you for taking out time to read this statement, and respecting my privacy henceforth.”
In November 2021, Shilpa Shetty Kundra and her husband, Raj Kundra were spotted together for the first time after his release from jail. The couple was seen in Himachal Pradesh, posing with the locals. In one of the pictures, they were seen performing a puja at the temple and praying for strength in their tough times.
We hope people will understand and stop the trolling and negativity on Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra’s family!
