Businessman Raj Kundra, husband of actress Shilpa Shetty, has made it to the headlines for the wrong reason once again. He was arrested on Monday night on charges of creating pornographic content. However, this is not the first time that Kundra has found himself in the middle of a scandal.
While the Commissioner of Police said in a statement that they have enough evidence to arrest Kudra in the current case, he has had run-ins with the law earlier as well, in cases of fraud.
IANS takes a look at his controversies of the past.
The former co-owner of the Indian Premier League (IPL) team Rajasthan Royals was banned for life from cricket after being accused of betting. Kundra and the former ICC chief N. Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan were found guilty of betting. However, Kundra had filed a petition in Supreme Court in 2018 after Delhi Police had given him a clean chit.
CHEATING TEXTILE COMPANY
In 2017, a textile company accused Kundra of cheating them of Rs 24 lakh. In the complaint filed, the textile company said that the money collected by Raj Kundra and his wife, actress Shilpa Shetty, in the name of the particular company, was never given to them. The Police had filed a complaint against him.
In 2018, Raj was allegedly involved in the Bitcoin Scam. As per the Pune crime branch, some Bollywood actors were promoting an illegal scam to invest money in Bitcoin. A lot of money was recovered after the police came down heavy on this racket. It is said that as much as Rs 2 thousand crore was recovered.
UGLY SPAT WITH EX-WIFE
Raj Kundra in a recent interview to an entertainment portal alleged that his ex-wife Kavita was having an affair with his former brother-in-law. His statement came after his ex-wife accused Shilpa Shetty to be the reason behind their separation.
Sharmila’s arrest, attack on convoy trigger tension
Attack on YSR Telangana Party (YSRTP) leader Y. S. Sharmila’s convoy allegedly by the supporters of ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and her subsequent arrest by the police triggered tension during her padyatra in Warangal district on Monday.
Police stopped Sharmila’s padyatra and arrested her and YSRTP leaders and workers accompanying her in Chennaraopeta mandal.
YSRTP cadres tried to resist the arrests and raised slogans against the police and the TRS government. The police used mild force to control the situation.
Sharmila, sister of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, was arrested after she allegedly made certain objectionable comments about TRS MLA P. Sudershan Reddy.
Sharmila wanted to know from police why were they taking her into custody instead of arresting those who attacked her bus.
YSRTP alleged that the bus which Sharmila is using to rest during her ongoing Praja Prasthanam padayatra was attacked and burnt down by the members of the ruling TRS party.
The mob also damaged cars belonging to YSR Telangana Party leaders. The incident happened near Lingagiri village, under Chennaraopeta mandal in Warangal district.
Sharmila was participating in the padyatra on 223rd day when a group of men chanting pro-TRS slogans and hailing KCR, reached the place where the caravan was halted and torched it.
“For the past 223 days, me and my Party leaders and representatives are holding a peaceful Padayatra to highlight the plight of various sections of people in Telangana. Our rising popularity has jolted Chief Minister KCR and his party men, who want to stop me at any cost,” she said.
Daughter of former chief minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy said that it is highly unfortunate that some police officers are siding with the ruling party and disrupting ‘our efforts to reach the people and raise their issues.’
The Praja Prasthanam padayatra has so far crossed 3,500 kms mark, covering 75 Assembly segments in the State. She has covered 1863 villages under 208 mandals and 61 Municipalities along with 4 Municipal Corporations, so far.
SRK’s Mumbai bungalow Mannat gets a diamond-studded nameplate
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is known as the king of Bollywood, has added more jewels to his crown – quite literally. His bungalow, Mannat is one of the iconic places in Mumbai, and now he has cranked it up a notch by getting a diamond studded nameplate for his residence.
Several fan clubs of the ‘Chak De! India’ star recently shared the pictures of the nameplate on their social media as they swarmed to the King’s castle to take a glimpse of the shimmery nameplate, which surfaced roughly two months after the previous nameplate.
In the pictures, two diamond nameplates could be seen with Mannat written on the left side and Landsend written on the right. Previously, it was a blackboard with Mannat Landsend embossed on it.
Landsend because the sea-facing bungalow is situated in the land’s end part of Bandstand in Bandra.
SRK often greets his fans from his balcony as he did recently on his birthday on November 2. Fans now have all the more reason to put the camera shutter sound in action with the installation of the new nameplate.
On the work front, SRK has three big-ticket releases in the pipeline first of which is ‘Pathaan’ from the YRF spy universe. The film will mark SRK’s return to the silver screen after a hiatus of 4 years. Additionally, he also has Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘Dunki’ in which he will share the screen with Taapsee Pannu and south director Atlee’s ‘Jawan’.
