FIR Registered against Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra in Cheating Case

An FIR has been filed against actor Shilpa Shetty, her husband Raj Kundra, and Kaashif Khan, the director of a fitness company called SLF Private Limited on Saturday at the Bandra police station.


The police have registered the FIR under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) including sections 420 (Cheating), 120-B (Criminal Conspiracy), 506 (Criminal Intimidation), and 34 (Common Intention).

According to a report by India Today, the complainant is Nitin Barai, a Pune-based businessman, who alleged that in July 2014, the accused had encouraged him to invest Rs 1.51 crores in SFL Fitness. He claimed that he had invested in the company after it was promised that they will provide him a franchise and open a gym and a spa in Pune.

However, when it did not materialise, he asked for his money back but was allegedly threatened.

The police have said that an investigation is underway. According to a report by The Hindustan Times, an officer said, “We have registered a case on the complaint of Barai and have also recorded his full statement. We are now investigating the case and verifying all the documents and bank statements.”

This is not the first time that Raj Kundra has been caught in a controversy. In July, the businessman was arrested in an ongoing pornography case for being the “key conspirator”. He was accused of making porn films under the pretext of producing short films for OTT platforms and distributing them on multiple apps.


Many actors have also filed cases against him. Poonam Pandey moved the Bombay High Court in 2020 to file a case against Kundra and his associates for illegally using her content and circulating her number on her app.

Actor Sherlyn Chopra filed a complaint against Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra alleging that she was a victim of fraud and mental harassment. In response, the couple filed a defamation suit against her.

Kundra was granted bail in September after spending two months in jail.
