Talking to Hindustan Times, Raj Kundra revealed that this scandal did not take a toll on his marriage. He admitted that though everything that happened was horrible, but he found solace in his wife Shilpa Shetty because of mutual understanding and trust. He added that if someone told him something about her, he knew how much to believe.

Elaborating further Raj revealed that Shilpa laughed when she heard about the case and said that it is not true. “If you are living at home together and there is something like p*rn involved, you would know,” said the businessman.

Raj Kundra on facing social media trolls

Raj Kundra expressed that it was unfair that his wife Shilpa Shetty and kids had to bear the brunt of this case. “It all happened because I am married to a celebrity. If I was not, I don’t think half of this damage would have been done. I feel they weren’t getting at me, but my wife and kids. You attack me, no issues, but she was collateral damage.”


Raj also revealed that he deletes and blocks trolls on social media. But he also said that the last thing he wants is his kids and wife reading terms like ‘p*rn king’. He said that they do not know the facts and they are not even giving the judiciary a chance to announce whether he is guilty.
