Businessman Raj Kundra who is at the heart of the porn apps controversy had once spoken about whether his controversial life affects his wife, actor Shilpa Shetty’s image. Raj Kundra was also accused in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match-fixing case and was slammed with a lifetime ban from the series in 2015.
“Naturally na, main kuch bhi karta hun, unka naam mere saath judaa hai abhi. Life mein jo bhi main karunga ya jo bhi woh karegi plus minus dono toh dono ko abhi miya biwi hai toh jhelna hi padega (Whatever I do, her name is connected with mine. Whatever we do in life, since we are a married couple we have to bear it). She’s a very supportive wife and we both know the difference between right and wrong and one thing’s for sure, we don’t know how to do wrong,” he had told a news channel at the time.
“When it comes to integrity there’s nothing more important. Mere liye paisa koi maene nhi rakhta. Main floor se aaya hoon, khud hi maine kamai ki hai aajtak. Mere koi forefathers nahi hai. Thaali pe kuch mila nahi hai aajtak (There’s no value of money for me. I had a humble beginning, I’ve earned on my own so far. I never had any forefathers. I was never handed anything on a silver platter). So the way I work is that money main kabhi bhi kama lunga but izzat nhi gawani chahiye (I can earn money any time but I shouldn’t lose my respect),” he had added.
Earlier this week, Raj Kundra was arrested by the Mumbai Police on allegations of making and selling pornographic videos via some app/s. As of now, he has been remanded in police custody till July 23 by a Mumbai court.
