16 Aug – Amid husband Raj Kundra's pornography racketeering case, Shilpa Shetty found herself being named in an alleged case of fraud in Uttar Pradesh along with her mother, Sunanda.
Lucknow Police Commissioner DK Thakur revealed that a person from Lucknow has filed a case against the managing director and director of IOSIS wellness centre for cheating in a franchisee deal.
"It was found that Shilpa Shetty is the chairperson of the company so we have now served a notice, which was handed over personally at her residence and she has been asked to explain her side of the story in the case," the commissioner added.
On the other hand, Shilpa's business partner Kiran Bawa has denied that the actress and her mother are associated with the said wellness spa, posting on social media, "l am addressing this post as a responsible person, being the Chairperson of IOSIS Spa & Wellness Private Limited and therefore request people to please verify and confirm facts before posting and sharing it on social media or such other platforms. Ms. Shilpa Shetty and her mother Ms. Sunanda Shetty has no connection with IOSIS. We parted ways amicably long ago."
On the other hand, Shilpa's husband Raj Kundra is currently working on his bail applications, stressing that there is no material evidence against him, while the police has dismissed it again and again with the notion that Raj could escape from India, being a British citizen that he is.
