Rajasthan Royals co-owner reportedly confessed that he placed illegal IPL bets worth a crore in the last three years. Suspended Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra sought divine intervention while his actress wife Shilpa Shetty took solace from her mother's comforting words as the duo dealt with the tough times that have followed the NRI businessman's questioning by the Delhi Police.

"A very holy day for me as spent the day doing an 8 hour long puja at home. It's all about having faith. #peace #love #prayers," tweeted Kundra.
Kundra has been facing tough times ever since he has been questioned by the Delhi Police, to whom the NRI businessman reportedly admitted to betting in the cash-rich Twenty20 league.
The 37-year-old British Indian businessman was later suspended by BCCI's all-powerful working committee, pending completion of an inquiry.
Kundra is the second team owner, after N Srinivasan's son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings Team Principal Gurunath Meiyappan, to be suspended from cricketing activities in the wake of the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal.
Shilpa Shetty, on the other hand, turned to her mother for support.
"Was Low and mom said this to me "People will hate you, rate you, shake you, and break you. How strong you stand is what makes you".
"Those words gave me strength immediately. Parents unconditional love and prayers put a smile on my face. Shd never take that fr granted :)," she tweeted.
