Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra’s Juhu residence was raided by Crime Branch this afternoon. The raid was conducted in a case related to the production and distribution of pornographic content.
Hours after the raid, Shilpa Shetty took to Instagram and wrote a note for her fans and followers. In her post, she urged people not to boycott her film Hungama 2 that is releasing tonight. She wrote,
“I believe and practice the teachings of Yoga,’The only place where life exists is the present moment, NOW.’
Hungama 2 involves the relentless efforts of an entire team that’s worked very hard to make a good film, and the film shouldn’t suffer… ever!
So today, I request you all to watch Hungama 2 with your families to put a smile on your face and for the sake of every single person attached to the film.
