A day after Shilpa Shetty and her husband Raj Kundra were booked under charges of duping a textile business, Raj Kundra has said that Shilpa Shetty’s name has been linked to the case purely to create hype.
According to a report in the Indian Express, Raj said, “The vendor is misusing his connections in various stations. This is a civil matter and an abuse of the law. We have tight contracts signed and on the contrary, the vendor owes us money for not fulfilling orders. The best deal is, unfortunately, being wound up due to the business failing and we are following the laws of the land to close the various matters properly.”
Raj Kundra further said, “It’s sad that at every step of the way my wife’s name is dragged in to create media hype. She was a non-executive, who had nothing to do with the daily running of the business.”
