Meanwhile, Shilpa Shetty’s comeback film Hungama 2 will release on Disney+ Hotstar today. Earlier, the Hungama 2 producer Ratan Jain said that the film will not be affected by her husband Raj Kundra's arrest. The Priyadarshan directorial marks Shilpa's return to films after 14 years.
In a recent interview, Ratan Jain said, “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 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."
