After a long hiatus of 14-years Shilpa Shetty is all set for her Bollywood comeback with Priyadarshan's Hungama 2 which is slated for a July 23rd release. However,  the crime branch of Mumbai Police arrested Shilpa's husband, Raj Kundra in connection with a case registered against him for creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some apps. Now as per a report in Network 18, Ratan Jain producer of Hungama 2 has said that the controversy surrounding Raj Kundra won’t affect his film. “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," Jain said.

Ratan is confident about the film getting a positive response, “We have made a good film with an honest intention. People will watch the film not because of the so-called ‘Shilpa Shetty controversy’ but because of its content. We are releasing the film as per schedule and nothing has been affected because of the entire situation." Jain further states that an actor’s involvement in any case doesn’t affect the film. “I don’t want to take any names but in the past I have worked with the biggest superstars whose names have been involved in drug case. The cops called them for interrogation but nothing was proved. People have also forgotten about it. It is just the media that creates a hype out of nothing. Raj has been arrested but nothing is proved that whatever he was doing was illegal. When the judgement comes out, we will talk about it. The law and the investigation agency are doing their job well and let them come out with all the findings. "The Joint Commissioner of Mumbai Police, Milind Bharambe, also commented on Shilpa Shetty’s role in the porn case in a press conference that happened on Tuesday. He mentioned that no evidence has suggested Shilpa’s role in the production of the porn videos produced by the company owned by her husband, however, the probe is still on. As reported by news agency ANI, Bharambe was quoted as saying, “We have not been able to any find any active role (of Shilpa Shetty) yet. We are investigating. We’ll appeal to the victims to come forward and contact the Crime Branch Mumbai. We’ll take appropriate action.”
