The family of actor Shilpa Shetty Kundra is being dragged to court by one Parhad Amra, the proprietor of an automobile agency, over an alleged Rs 21 lakh loan her late father Surendra Shetty had taken from him. While Parhad claims Surendra was supposed to pay back the amount with interest in January 2017, the latter’s family has denied all allegations. Their matter will come up for hearing in the Metropolitan Magistrate Court on January 29.
The report claims, â€œAmra 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’.”
Parhad further claims that he was told that Sunanda and his two daughters were his partners and aware of this business transaction. But a few months before the set date, Surendra Shetty passed away in October 2016. But after his death, “Sunanda and her daughters denied that the loan was ever advanced, and refused to repay the amount.” Shilpa Shetty stresses on the importance of nutrition, says will come up with her app soon.
Speaking to mid-day, Shilpa said, “I have never had any involvement in my late father’s business, and have no knowledge at all of the financial dealings of the company. This gentleman is misleading the media. I knew him in the capacity of our family car mechanic that’s all.”
