Shilpa Shetty’s husband and famous businessman Raj Kundra was arrested by Mumbai Police on July 19 in a pornography-related case. The police stated in a press conference that they have sufficient evidence against him and alleged that he is the key conspirator. Along with Raj Kundra, his PA Umesh Kamat’s name has also surfaced. Images of Marathi actor Umesh Kamat, who shares the same name as Kundra’s PA were used by top media houses while covering the sensational case.
The popular actor has slammed the media for using his picture and name in the ongoing Raj Kundra case without verifying the facts. He took to Instagram and wrote, “Today, I went through a very outrageous experience of irresponsible Journalism. In the search of one Umesh Kamat alleged involvement in Raj Kundra case, My name was picked up recklessly out of nowhere and associated with the case without any verification of facts.”

He added, “Maybe the media doesn’t realize but this single irresponsible incident has led to mental agony and irreparable damage to my image. My pictures were irresponsibly used by @aajTak @crimetak and @newsnation. Within no time, I and my family were flooded with calls and questions coming from all over the county just because someone was in the haste to get a scoop and wasn’t enough to verify the facts. Huge damage has been done.”
“I shall pursue necessary legal remedies against the respective media agency, I have therefore immediately taken to social media to clarify that the person my name “UMESH KAMAT” alleged to be involved in the Raj Kundra case is, not me. I request you all to take note of the same and not fall for the absolute false and negligent news coverage I am sure I have your support- Umesh Kamat,” the actor concluded in his social media post.
Umesh Kamat has a verified Instagram page with a following of over 3.2 lakh. He is known for his memorable roles in Asambhav, Shubham Karoti and Eka Lagnachi Teesri Goshta.
