For the last few days, Raj Kundra is grabbing national headlines along with his actress wife Shilpa Shetty for all wrong reasons, all thanks to his arrest in a pornography-related case. According to reports, Shilpa reportedly lashed out at her husband Raj Kundra when he returned home for a search following being arrested in connection with a porn racket.
Raj Kundra was arrested on July 19, and there has been no relief for him since then. Yesterday, the court extended his judicial custody for 14 more days. He has been booked under Sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292 and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) along with relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act. On Tuesday, he was sent to 14 days of judicial custody.
According to NDTV's report, Shilpa was seen scolding and shouting when Raj came home for a short time, "We have everything, what was the need to do all this."
"Shattered Shilpa told Kundra that due to his actions the family name is getting defamed and their endorsements in the industry are being canceled and the family is facing huge financial losses. She asked him what the need of doing such things when they achieved a standing in society was," an ANI report states.
Latest reports suggest that Bollywood people who were once close to the family, especially Shilpa, have decided to stay away from the ongoing controversy. According to Bollywood Hungama, Shilpa's filmy friends have that she used to consider her own people have reportedly abandoned her and keeping safe distance.
It also quotes an actor saying, "This is too sleazy. It's not like a routine controversy. No one wants to be seen anywhere near to this."
The Bollywood Hungama report also said that Shetty's friend, whom she usually hangs around with during parties, festivals and events, has not tried to call to check up on her during these dark times.
Last week, Shilpa Shetty's film, Hungama 2, was released amid all this controversy which has received bad reviews.
