Raj Kundra and Shrelyn Chopra news: Shilpa Shetty and her husband Raj Kundra have filed a defamation suit against actor Sherlyn Chopra for Rs 50 crore, according to news agency ANI. Chopra has also been urged to issue a “public apology” to the couple.
Chopra filed a defamation suit against Shetty and Kundra for claimed sexual harassment, infidelity, and criminal intimidation on October 14, just days after filing a complaint against them.
She informed reporters outside the Juhu police station, “I have made a complaint to register a FIR against Raj Kundra for sexual harassment, cheating, and criminal intimidation.”
Chopra also said that Kundra came to her house on March 27, 2019, and sexually abused her, according to ANI.

According to Live Law, Chopra’s defamation notice alleges that her charges against Shetty and her husband are “fabricated, false, frivolous, and baseless…made with the intent to slander and extort money.” Chopra is allegedly attempting to exonerate herself from the ongoing inquiry against her, according to the notice.
Shetty and Kundra have also accused Chopra of making “lewd statements” about them on social media and in the press, according to their lawyer. They further claim that Shetty’s name was used to “get TRP attention” and “create unwarranted controversy” in the case.
According to Live Law, the notice also includes a phone contact between Shetty and Chopra on April 20, during which the former inquired about the charges, and the latter apparently stated that they were unfounded and made at the request of her lawyer.
Both Kundra and Chopra are under investigation for their suspected roles in the streaming of pornographic video via an app. The Mumbai Police Department has accused Kundra of being the case’s’main facilitator,’ alleging that he and other defendants abused young women working in the film industry by photographing them in obscene ways.
Raj Kundra, who is free on bail, has disputed the allegations, while Shetty, while reiterating her faith in the police and the judiciary, has stated that she was unaware of Kundra’s job because she was preoccupied with her own.
