FIR has been registered against Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty Kundra, her husband Raj Kundra and a few others have accused her of cheating of Rs 1.51 crore on a complaint by a Mumbai-based businessman.
Based on a complaint by businessman Nitin Barai, an FIR was registered at the Bandra police station on Saturday, according to news agency PTI. The complainant alleged that in July 2014, Kashif Khan, director of SFL Fitness Company, along with Shetty, Kundra and others asked them to invest Rs 1.51 crore in the venture to make profit. The complainant claimed that he was assured that SFL Fitness Company would provide him with a franchise and would open a gym and spa in Hadapsar and Koregaon in neighboring Pune, but as per the FIR, this did not happen.
Later, when the complainant asked for his money back, he was allegedly threatened, the police officer said, citing the complaint. This comes nearly three months after 46-year-old Kundra was released from Arthur Road jail. Chief Metropolitan Magistrate SB Bhajipale granted him bail on a surety of Rs 50,000.
The businessman, who is in judicial custody at Arthur Road Jail in central Mumbai, was arrested in July for allegedly making obscene films and publishing them through certain apps.
In a statement given to the Mumbai Police, Shilpa Shetty had claimed that she was not aware of her husband’s activities as she was busy with his work, a supplementary chargesheet by the Mumbai Police in connection with a case related to pornographic films in a court was filed. ,
