Shilpa Shetty Kundra hasn’t made an appearance since the arrest and has decided to stay away from the spotlight. The actress has also taken a break as a judge from the reality show, Super Dancer 4.
Last week, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had stated on her Instagram handle and requested everyone to respect her family’s privacy for the sake of her children– Viaan and Samisha. She said in the statement, “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.”
She further added, “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.”
In the case against her husband Raj Kundra, few known faces from the industry have also landed support to the actress. Director Hansal Mehta, producer Ratan Jain, and Richa Chadda are some of them. Shilpa’s sister Shamita Shetty has also recently joined Bigg Boss OTT. She has not backed out from her commitments amidst all the trouble her family is going through.
