Actress Shilpa Shetty has been receiving support from several of her colleagues from the film industry following her first statement that she shared after the arrest of her husband Raj Kundra in the alleged pornography-related case. The actress has said in the statement that she “will continue to refrain” commenting on the arrest and requested for privacy.
R Madhavan responded to her post and addressed her as “the strongest” and expressed that he has full faith that she will overcome these tough times. He wrote, “You are one of the strongest people I know and I have complete faith that this challenge too you will overcome with grace and dignity. Our prayers always with you and your family”.
Shamita Shetty, Shilpa’s sister also expressed her support and commented on the post. She wrote, “I love u my munki and with you always, through thick n thin. Always @theshilpashetty”. Celebrities including Varun Dhawan, Gauahar Khan, Abhimanyu Dassani, Richa Chadha and Hansal Mehta amongst others responded to her post. Mahhi Vij addressed her as “a woman with most beautiful heart” while Aniruddh Dave tweeted, “It shall pass too, may the truth/ justice prevail”.
In her statement, she humbly requested the people to respect her privacy. “As a family, we are taking recourse to all our available legal remedies. But, till then I humbly request you – especially as a MOTHER – to respect our privacy for my children’s sake and request you to refrain from commenting on half-baked information without verifying the veracity of the same”, reads a part of her statement.
Richa Chadha and Hansal Mehta had, earlier, defended Shilpa. Richa wrote, “We’ve made a national sport out of blaming women for the mistakes of the men in their lives. Glad she’s suing” while Hansal’s tweet reads, “If you cannot stand up for her at least leave Shilpa Shetty alone and let the law decide? Allow her some dignity and privacy. It is unfortunate that people in public life ultimately are left to fend for themselves and are proclaimed guilty even before justice is meted out”.
