Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra file Rs 50 crore defamation case against Sherlyn Chopra

Shilpa Shetty's husband, Raj Kundra, who is a businessman by profession, walked out of a Mumbai jail on September 21, after spending two months in jail, in a pornography content case. While Shilpa has been spotted out and about ever since, Raj has been lying low. As per latest reports, Raj and his wife have slapped actress Sherlyn Chopra with a Rs 50 crore defamation case. Sherlyn Chopra had filed a fresh complaint on October 14, against Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty for allegedly committing fraud against her and harassing her mentally. She also accused Kundra of sexual harassment. Now, Shilpa and Raj, through their notice, are seeking an apology and Rs 50 crore in damages for 'lewd, below the belt' remarks against them on public platforms. The couple's official statement reportedly reads, 'The entire allegations made by Ms Sherlyn Chopra against Mr Raj Kundra and Ms Shilpa Shetty Kundra, are concocted, false, fake, frivolous, baseless, without any evidence, even to Ms Sherlyn Chopra’s knowledge, and have been made with an ulterior motive to defame and extort money.' The legal suit also states that Chopra had informed Shilpa Shetty earlier this year that her complaint is fake and that it was her lawyer who suggested she file a criminal complaint against Raj Kundra. The notice reportedly also mentions that she called Shilpa and said that she is ashamed of herself for filing a criminal complaint against her husband and she would withdraw the complaint unconditionally. Furthermore, through their notice, Raj and Shilpa have accused Sherlyn of demanding Rs 48,00,000 with an intention to extort money through her lawyer on October 4, 2021. This suit comes over a month after Sherlyn's statement was recorded in the porn racket case against the businessman. In her statement, Sherlyn had said that Raj Kundra and his firm's creative director would repeatedly follow her to work for their ‘HotShots’ app. Sherlyn's detailed statement was also a part of the 1,467-page supplementary chargesheet that was filed by Mumbai Crime Branch officials in the case.
