Shilpa Shetty visited Vaishno Devi shrine in Jammu and Kashmir, on the same day that a supplementary charge sheet was filed against her husband, businessman Raj Kundra, in a pornography case.
The actress arrived at Katra which Is the base camp of the cave shrine on 15th September. Accompanied by police personnel Shilpa undertook the journey to the shrine on a horse. Chanting ‘Jai Mata di’ during the journey, she said, “I am very happy to be here. It was due to the goddesses’ call that I came all the way to pay obeisance to her.”
After taking some time off work in the immediate aftermath of her husband’s arrest in July Shilpa returned as one of the judges on the reality show Super Dancer few weeks later. She also appeared in a supporting role in Hungama 2, her first film in over a decade.
In her only statement on the matter, she said that ‘the past few days have been challenging’ and that she would prefer to not publicly comment on the case. She asked the public to ‘refrain from commenting on half-baked information’ and requested everybody to respect her family’s ‘right to privacy’. “We don’t deserve a media trial,” she signed off.
The Mumbai Police’s crime branch filed a supplementary chargesheet in a pornographic content case against Raj Kundra. The nearly 1,500-page chargesheet against Kundra and his associate Ryan Thorpe was filed before a magistrate court. Both of them have been booked under sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) related to sexual harassment and cheating, among others, as well provisions of the Information Technology Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
