Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty exchanged vows in 2009. However, a recent tweet from Raj Kundra has raised eyebrows as he cryptically declared, “we have separated.” Yet, this announcement appears to be a strategic move to drum up interest for his upcoming movie, ‘UT 69.’
Raj Kundra, Shilpa Shetty’s spouse, gained notoriety in 2021 due to his arrest in a pornography case. Now, he is poised to make his acting debut in ‘UT 69,’ with the film’s trailer recently unveiled. The movie is scheduled for release on November 3. Against this backdrop, Raj Kundra, primarily recognized as a businessman, took to his social media account (formerly Twitter) to publicize his separation. Many are speculating that this revelation is, in fact, a shrewd promotional tactic for his forthcoming film.
‘UT 69’ sees Raj Kundra reenact his own experience in prison, where he spent close to two months at India’s Arthur Road Jail in 2021. The film offers a glimpse into the harrowing ordeals he endured as a consequence of his alleged involvement in a pornography scandal.
Raj Kundra’s cryptic social media post contained the brief statement, “We have separated and kindly request you to give us time during this difficult period.” This enigmatic message has left many pondering whether it is indeed a publicity stunt.
The Raj Kundra pornography scandal was among the most talked-about and contentious subjects of 2021. Concerning the film, an insider shared, “The movie will provide an insider’s perspective on Raj Kundra’s experiences during his time in the overcrowded Arthur Road Jail. While the director’s identity is presently undisclosed, Raj Kundra will play an active role in various aspects of production, including the script. The film will recount Raj Kundra’s entire journey, from the initial allegations to media coverage, his time in jail, and his eventual release. It’s a narrative from the vantage point of Raj Kundra and his family.”
Raj Kundra faced arrest by the Mumbai Police for his alleged role in the production and distribution of pornographic films, an incident that unfolded in 2021.
