Businessman Raj Kundra, husband of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty has shed some light on divorce from his first wife, Kavita. A video of his ex-wife had resurfaced online where she blamed Shetty for breaking their marriage. 

“It’s saddening a few days after my wife’s birthday. 11-year-old news goes viral again bringing up a half-baked story and forever trying to malign us. There is obviously some agenda. I have maintained my silence for 12 years but enough is enough now%u201D, he said in an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla. 

Kundra told the agency that his ex-wife was paid by the media house to say what she said in the video and make the story more scandalous. 

He said that she was paid thousands of pounds to do the interview and that he saw it clearly mentioned her bank statement at the time of their divorce. 

He added that Kavita is pointing the finger at the wrong person and that she herself was responsible for their broken marriage. 

Kundra revealed that Kavita had an extramarital affair while the two were married. 

 “She grew very close to my ex-brother-in-law, spending more and more time with him, especially when I was out on business trips. Many of my family and even my driver would say we sense something fishy between these two and I would never believe it. I gave my ex-wife the benefit of doubt. I did everything I possibly could for both sides of the family because for me my side or her family is family, a principle I still follow today%u201D. 

He told the agency that he was heartbroken upon discovering the messages exchanged between the two on her hidden cell phone. 

After their divorce in 2006, Kundra married Shilpa Shetty in 2009. According to Raj, Shetty supported him through his divorce. Shetty remained indifferent to the surfaced video, said Kundra who himself got very angry with it. 

Raj said: “I was very angry. She again said “ignore! don’t worry, but I decided enough is enough she is not even aware I have given this interview. I am doing this because I think the truth finally needs to be told.”
