Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty left for Jammu on Wednesday to visit Vaishno Devi temple. Her visit comes on a day when Mumbai Police filed a supplementary charge sheet against her husband Raj Kundra. The businessman was arrested by the Crime Branch in July for his alleged involvement in the porn app case. The testimony of Shilpa, who has been named as a witness in the case, states that she was busy with her life and had no idea what her husband was doing.
Shilpa shared a few glimpses of her Vaishno Devi journey on Instagram. Taking to Instagram story, Shilpa shared a video in which she is seen chanting ‘Jai Mata Di’ while riding a pony and moving towards the temple.
On reaching Katra, the base camp of the cave temple, the actress proceeded on a horse. Police personnel were also with him. According to a report in PTI, the actor said that he is very happy to be there. Chanting ‘Jai Mata Di’ during the yatra, she said, “It was because of the invocation of the deities that I came solemnly to bow to them.”
Shilpa returned to Mumbai on Thursday night after completing her pilgrimage from Jammu. The paparazzi posted outside the Mumbai airport took his picture.
Shilpa has been in the news since July this year, when Mumbai Police last month arrested her husband Raj Kundra for allegedly creating and distributing obscene clips on a mobile app. He is currently in jail.
Shilpa took to Instagram to share a statement on the matter. Saying that ‘the last few days have been challenging’, she wrote, “A lot of unwarranted allegations leveled against me by media and (not so) well wishers. Lots of trolling/questioning…not just me but my family too.” . MY STAND… I have not commented yet and will continue to refrain from doing so in this matter as it is under consideration, so please stop misquoting on my part.”
She further said that she and her family do not deserve a media trial. “As a family, we are resorting to all available legal remedies. But, until then I humbly request you – especially as a mother – to respect our privacy for the sake of my children and request you to refrain from commenting on half-baked information without verifying the veracity of it. Avoid. I am a proud law abiding Indian citizen and a hardworking professional since last 29 years. People have believed in me and I have never let anyone down. So, most importantly, I request you to respect my family and my ‘right to privacy’ during this time. We don’t deserve media trial. Please let the law take its course. Satyameva Jayate!”
