It seems that the troubles around Silpashetti and her husband Raj Kundra are not over yet. Shilpa disappeared from the spotlight after Raj Kundra was arrested in July in an incident related to the production and distribution of pornography via the OTT platform. According to police investigations, Raj sent adult movies to foreign companies through a file-sharing service and uploaded content to multiple apps to circumvent Indian law.
Shilpa posted a note a few days later that she was unaware of Raj’s activity and did not comment until what she was saying demanded that the media trial be terminated.
Raj was arrested and released on bail in September. Considering stress and caution, Silpashetti decided to move away from the media.
The couple first appeared together since the release of Raj, who was visiting a temple in Himachal Pradesh last week. But it seems that more problems are being brewed for Silpa.
FIR was registered for a man named Shilpa, Raj, Kaashif Khan, and several others, based on complaints from businessmen. The man claims to have promised a profit in return for investing Rs 10.5 million in an SFL fitness company in 2014. He said he was threatened when a man asked Pune to get his money back after a failed plan to open a franchise, gym and spa in Pune.
Silpa responded to FIR by keeping a distance from the wellness company.
“I woke up to a FIR registered under Large and my name,” she wrote. “To correct the record, SFL Fitness is a company run by Kaashif Khan. He took over the naming rights of the SFL brand and opened SFL gyms nationwide.
The Hungama 2 star expressed disappointment over her name and reputation being tarnished with false accusations.
For the unversed, the complaint had been lodged by Nitin Barai, a businessman by profession, who had been forced to invest a whopping of 1.51 crore.
Nitin was deceived in return when Shilpa and Raj did not fulfil the promises they made to him, and when he sought his money back, he was threatened.
