MUMBAI, India — Bollywood actress Shamita Shetty has come forward supporting her sister Shilpa Shetty Kundra. The much-awaited sequel of the last movie, “Hungama 2,” was released on the streaming platform Disney+ Hotstar on July 23, 2021, amid her husband Raj Kundra’s arrest in a porn films case.
Shetty took to her Instagram handle and shared the poster of her sister’s movie “Hungama 2” and urged her fans and followers to watch it. Sharing the poster, she penned a heartfelt note for Kundra and assured her that “this too shall pass.”
“All d best my darling Munki for the release of ur film Hungama after 14 years. I know U’ve put in a lot of effort into this one.. the entire team has !..(sic),” Shetty said in the post.
“Love you and with you ALWAYS. Uve gone through a lot of ups n downs in life and one thing I know for sure .. Uve emerged stronger!… this too shall pass my darling. All the best to the entire team of #hungama2 only on @disneyplushotstar @disneyplushotstarvip (sic).”
Earlier on July 23, 2021, Kundra too took to her social media handles to urge fans to watch the film as it is a “team effort” and said the movie “should not suffer.”
“I believe and practice the teachings of Yoga, ‘The only place where life exists is the present moment, NOW (sic),” Kundra said in the post.
“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. Thank you! With gratitude, Shilpa Shetty Kundra (sic).”
As soon as the actor shared the post, many social media users trolled her in the comments section about her husband’s case.
After her husband’s arrest on July 19, 2021, many industry faces have stepped in and shared their stories and cases related to Kundra and his alleged pornographic films business.
In connection with the case, a Mumbai court sent Kundra and his associate Ryan Thorpe to police custody on July 23, 2021. The Mumbai Police told the Court that they suspect money earned from pornography was used for online betting.
The case was registered with Crime Branch Mumbai in February 2021 about creating pornographic films and, so far, 11 people have been arrested, including Kundra.
