On Wednesday, fitness enthusiast and Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty Kundra said that she has never had any involvement in her late father Surendra Shetty’s business, whereas reports state that she, her mother and her sister are being dragged to court over a Rs 21 lakh loan taken by the departed.
"I have had no involvement in my late father's business ever and have no knowledge of the financial dealing of the company at all. This gentleman is misleading the media. I knew him in the capacity of our family car mechanic, that's all," Shilpa said in a statement.
This has come in response to reports that Parhad Amra, proprietor of an automobile agency, has taken Shilpa, her sister Shamita and their mother Sunanda, to court. According to reports, Parhad claims that he shared cordial relationship with Shilpa’s father and it was in July 2015 that he provided financial help to Surendra Shetty for his business.
The report claims, “Amra paid the first instalment of Rs 8 lakh on August 20, 2015, from his automobile agency account, then a second one of Rs 5 lakh on September 5, 2015 from his personal account, and the third one of Rs 8 lakh on October 7, 2015 from his automobile agency's account. All payments were made through cheques drawn in the favour of Surendra's firm 'Corgifts'."
