Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, mother booked on fraud charges


Amid the Raj Kundra pornography racket case, more trouble is brewing for Shilpa Shetty and her family. A team of Lucknow Police has reached Mumbai in order to question Shilpa Shetty and her mother Sunanda Shetty in an alleged fraud case related to the wellness center. Reportedly, two FIRs have been registered at Hazratganj and Vibhutikhand police stations in Lucknow. One team has already reached Mumbai for questioning and another one will soon reach in order to question the Bollywood actress and her mother.

According to News18, “Shilpa Shetty and her mother took crores of rupees from two people in the name of opening a branch of the wellness center, but the promise was not fulfilled. In this case, Jyotsna Chauhan, a resident of Omaxe Heights at Vibhutikhand police station, and Rohit Veer Singh at Hazratganj police station had filed a case for alleged cheating. Now Hazratganj Police and Vibhutikhand Police have sent notices for questioning Shilpa Shetty and her mother in this case.”

Apart from her Bollywood projects and TV shows, Shilpa Shetty runs a fitness chain called Iosis Wellness Center. She is the chairman of the company whereas her mother is the director.

Earlier it was reported in the media that Shilpa Shetty was set to make her first public appearance since the arrest of her husband, businessman Raj Kundra in a porn racket case. The actor is expected to join Bollywood and international stars, such as Arjun Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Ed Sheeran, Karan Johar, Parineeti Chopra, Saif Ali Khan, and Sara Ali Khan for a Covid-19 relief fundraiser.

The virtual event, titled We For India: Saving Lives, Protecting Livelihoods, is set to take place on August 15. The proceeds from the event will be utilized to provide facilities such as oxygen concentrators, cylinders, ventilators, essential medicines, and ICU units. Funds will also go towards supporting the staffing of vaccination centres. Donations are also expected to support long-term public recovery and rebuild livelihoods.

The three-hour videothon is set to stream on Facebook starting Sunday evening and will be hosted by Rajkummar Rao.

The event comes almost a month after Raj Kundra was arrested in the case of alleged production and publishing of pornographic content. His wife, actor Shilpa Shetty has been away from the spotlight since the arrest. She has taken a break from her reality show Super Dancer 4.
