According to a report by Live Law, the Bombay High Court voiced concern on media stories about Shilpa Shetty‘s children following her husband and businessman Raj Kundra’s arrest in the pornography racket case on Monday. Shilpa has filed a defamation claim against media houses for using sensationalism to promote their audience. According to the article, Shilpa Shetty’s lawyer, Abhinav Chandrachud, informed the court that they were in talks with a number of media portals and that they had agreed to remove the ‘objectionable’ content.
The court had previously refused to impose a blanket embargo on the media in July. It stated that no outlet should be involved in the dissemination of Shilpa as a parent of minor children.
Shilpa was instructed to separate the defendants between private vloggers and bloggers and traditional media outlets by Justice Gautam Patel, who was hearing the case. “Traditional media will understand the rationale. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same about private vloggers and bloggers. I am not concerned about Shilpa Shetty as she can handle herself. I am more concerned about her minor children. Media reports on Shetty’s personal life with her kids are a cause for concern. In such cases, the children are in the center”, stated Justice Patel.
The case has been set for another hearing on October 1st.
On the other hand, Shilpa Shetty’s husband, Raj Kundra was released from the Arthur Road Jail along with Ryan Thorpe on Tuesday morning. A magistrate court in Mumbai granted him bail in the case in exchange for Rs. 50,000 bond. After his release, Shetty took to her Instagram to share a note on rising back up. She wrote, “There will always be instances when you are pushed to the ground. In times like these, I truly believe that if you fall seven times, you must build the strength to get back up eight times.”
