Bollywood: Shilpa Shetty shares second post after Raj Kundra's arrest
The actor shares post about her latest film, urging fans to watch Hungama 2.
Actor Shilpa Shetty shared her second post on social media after the arrest of her husband, Raj Kundra. However, the note has nothing to do with her husband's case. The actor simply shared her joy over appearing in a major role in a Bollywood movie after a gap of 14 years. She was last seen in the 2007 film Apne, starring Sunny Deol and Dharmendra.

Meanwhile, Raj Kundra has moved court challenged his arrest as being ‘illegal’.
In a petition to the Bombay High Court, submitted through his lawyer, Kundra said that a mandatory notice was not issued before his arrest by the Mumbai Police. He has sought the quashing of the remand order and asked to be released immediately.
