It used to hurt me in the beginning: Raj Kundra on being trolled, says his son Viaan considers him his hero

Businessman and Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s husband Raj Kundra is all set to make his debut as an actor with the upcoming film UT69, which has the jail chronicles of Raj and is set to release on November 3. Ahead of film’s release, in a recent interview, he went on to talk about the media coverage and some comments that were harsh to accept. He revealed that comments like ‘muh dikhane ki layak nahi rahega’ were passed throughout and it was difficult to react.

Raj said, “It used to hurt me in the beginning, I wanted to reply, but Shilpa said, ‘Don’t complain, don’t explain. We know you haven’t done anything wrong, and if a guy comments and you reply, you are only going to give him attention. Let the law take its course, and when that happens, everyone will know you did no wrong'. But I disagree with it to some extent, because I feel when there is bad news, it is amplified and becomes front-page news, but when it is good news, it is reduced to a small column. There is no redemption there. Maybe this film will be my closure.”

He further went on to share about how Shilpa explained to their son,Viaan,  about the arrest and ongoing situation at that time.

Raj said, “My daughter is too young to read stuff online, but my son is now 11… I am his hero. He trusts me, has faith in me. We tell him not to be worried, he is not on social media, so he won’t read comments. But you know friends talk… But I also know that at that age there is unity. He did ask Shilpa what happened, why, and how. She gave him an appropriate answer to give to an 11-year-old.”

Raj was arrested back in the month of July of 2021 as he was alleged to be producing pornographic content and was released only in September of the same year.
