Statement by Shilpa Shetty Kundra on the arrest of Raj Kundra
Shilpa Shetty’s statement read: “Yes! The last few days have been difficult on all fronts. There have been a lot of rumors and accusations. Lots of unwarranted slander against me by the media and (not so) sympathizers too. Lots of trolling / questions were asked… not only to me but also to my family. MY POSITION… I HAVE NOT commented YET and I will continue to refrain from doing so on this matter as it is pending, 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 that, as this is an ongoing investigation, I have full confidence in the Mumbai Police and Indian Justice. As a family, we use all of our available legal remedies. But, until then, I humbly ask you – especially as a MOTHER – to respect our privacy for the sake of my children and ask you to refrain from commenting on half-cooked information without verifying its veracity. I am a proud law-abiding citizen of India and a diligent professional for 29 years. People trusted me and I never let anyone down. So, more importantly, I ask you to respect my family and “my right” to privacy in these times. We do not deserve a media trial. Please let the law take its course. Satyamev Jayate! With positivity and gratitude, Shilpa Shetty Kundra ”.
