Businessman Raj Kundra has made his Bollywood debut today. Titled ‘UT69’, the film is based on his real life experiences in Arthur Road Jail, Mumbai after he was arrested in pornography related case in 2021. As the film hit the theatres today, his actor-wife Shilpa Shetty penned a heartfelt note for him.
Taking to her Instagram account, she wrote, “My dearest Cookie, I know I say many things… but, this is something I want you to remember! YOU are special & brave, and I am soooo proud of you.Many people go through hardships… some become cynical, some bitter, & some even change. What is admirable is how YOU have taken it all in your stride and embraced life’s journey with positivity.”
She further added, “#UT69 celebrates the human spirit and shows how one can turn adversities into strength. You’re a living example of that. We all have our journeys – and you have endured yours with faith and patience. Last but not least, UT69 is entertaining despite dealing with a delicate subject and kudos to shahnawazali1 for handling this incredible story with a cinematic lens that balances dark humour & gut-wrenching emotions. It’s not an easy task, but you pulled it off. Congratulations to the entire team (most are debutants ).”
Shilpa concluded her post by writing, “It’s a slice of your life, onlyrajkundra, and you have put your life into it. Wishing you all only the very best. As an actor, you are a natural! Unbelievable, considering it’s your first film (I thought I was the only actor at home now I stand corrected)”.
