Many speculative stories are being published on Shilpa Shetty’s involvement in Raj Kundra’s pornography case which is still under investigation. After this, Shilpa had filed a plea to the Bombay High Court against various media outlets for violating her privacy by publishing conjectural stories. She stated that she would refrain from commenting on the matter as it is sub judice and that she has full faith in Mumbai Police. The Bombay High Court has upheld her plea of right to privacy stating that one cannot create a conjecture on any person based on the affliction faced by them or their family members.

The court stated an important point in the statement released that the person must be deemed to have forever sacrificed his or her right to privacy as no court can say that because a person is a public figure of any sort.

Shilpa took to Instagram stating that they don’t deserve media trial and to let law take its course.

Shilpa in her application had demanded immediate removal of various defamatory articles and conjectural articles however the court refrained from removing all the articles so as to not snatch the freedom afforded to media in India. The court further said that reporting on the investigation cannot be stopped because of freedom of speech.
