Raj Kundra’s accusations on ex-wife
British-Indian businessman and actress Shilpa Shetty's husband Raj Kundra has claimed in an interview that his ex-wife Kavita allegedly had an affair while she was married to him, with his sister's husband. He cited the affair as the reason of divorce between him and his first wife.
“We were living in one house with my mum, dad and my sister and her husband had moved over from India to try and settle in the UK. She (ex-wife) grew very close to my ex-brother-in-law spending more and more time with him especially when I was out on business trips. Many of my family and even my driver would say we sense something fishy between these two and I would never believe it. I gave my ex-wife the benefit of doubt...” Kundra told Pinkvilla in an interview.
“The relationship that my wife and ex-brother-in-law Vansh were sharing, going out for work together meeting and sitting in the same room so often, etc. I guess my sister felt it best to move back,” he further told the portal.
Kriti turns 12 Bollywood years old
Bollywood actress Kriti Kharbanda has completed 12 years in Bollywood. On Saturday, she took to Instagram to share her experience about the journey with fans. “12 years ago, on the 12th of June, I began a journey. As a teenager, I took my first steps into this industry, that has ultimately shaped me into the person I am today,” Kriti wrote on Instagram.
“In my time as an actor, I've met so many people who I'm grateful for. I've learned lessons, and so much about myself. I found my calling, it became my identity. I've had the privilege of working with some of the best people in the industry. So, to everybody associated with my career — be it for a minute, a day, or the last 12 years, I have nothing but gratitude for you,” she expressed.
“From Pragati, to Dr Swathi, to Aarti Shukla to Rajkumari Meena, and now Aditi, somewhere along the line I grew up. I went from being an immature teenager who was timid to an adult who is strong and bold. I was kid who loved playing dress up and dancing to the kickass numbers of the 90's and now I get to do that for a living. I cannot imagine a bigger blessing. Today I watch a full generation and more perform to my numbers, recreating things that I have done, and the feeling is surreal,” the actress shared.
