Shilpa Shetty will be seen in Hungama 2 later this week.

Shilpa Shetty's upcoming release Hungama 2 will not be affected by her husband, businessman Raj Kundra's recent arrest, confirmed the film's producer Ratan Jain in a new interview. The Priyadarshan directorial marks Shilpa's return to films after 14 years.

In the interview, Hungama 2 Ratan Jain pointed out that it is Raj Kundra that has been booked in the case and not Shilpa Shetty. He added that the controversy would not hamper the film's release. Hungama 2 is set to release on July 23, on Disney+ Hotstar.

“Why should any of this interfere with the release of Hungama 2? It’s her husband, not Shilpa who has been booked. She is one of the artists in the film and has completed all her work including the promotions. Even the investigative agency said that they have not been able to any find any active role of Shilpa so I don’t see why it should hamper our film. It is sad that people are dragging her name when she has nothing to do with it," Ratan said, speaking with News18.
