Sherlyn Chopra and Raj Kundra
Actress and model Sherlyn Chopra has accused businessman and Shilpa Shetty's husband Raj Kundra of sexual assault. Chopra made the accusation on Tuesday while recording her statement before the Mumbai Crime Branch's Property Cell in connection with the pornography case involving Kundra.
Chopra has alleged that Kundra called her business manager about a proposal in 2019. After the business meeting on March 27, 2019, Kundra allegedly once showed up 'unannounced' at her place following an argument between them and started 'kissing' her even though she 'resisted.' Sherlyn also claimed that Kundra told her that his marriage with Shilpa Shetty was 'complicated.'
