Andheri court summons Shilpa Shetty, Shamita Shetty, and Sunanda Shetty for non-payment of a loan
Shilpa Shetty, Shamita Shetty, and Sunanda Shetty are charged with failing to repay a loan of Rs 21 lakh
A court in Andheri summoned actors Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Shamita Shetty, and their mother Sunanda Shetty after a businessman filed a case alleging non-payment of a Rs 21 lakh debt. On February 28, the trio is scheduled to appear in court.
ANI, a news agency, tweeted on the development, saying, "Andheri court issued summon to actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra, her sister Shamita Shetty and mother Sunanda Shetty following a complaint by a businessman who has alleged non-repayment of Rs 21 lakhs loan by them; court orders the three to appear on February 28".
Shilpa's late father Surendra Shetty, according to allegations in the Times of India, borrowed Rs 21 lakh from an automobile agency owner in 2015 and was supposed to pay it back in January 2017. He died, however, on October 11, 2016, without repaying the loan.
According to the businessman, his daughters and wife were aware of the financial dealings but refused to repay the money. According to reports, the money was borrowed at an annual interest rate of 18 percent.
Neither Shilpa nor Shamita have responded to the allegations.
Shilpa Shetty's current job is as a judge on the talent-based reality show 'India's Got Talent.' Shamita was most recently seen on Salman Khan's Bigg Boss 15, where she came in third place.
