Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, her sister Shamita and mother Sunanda have landed in a legal soup as the owner of an automobile agency, Parhad Amra claims that Shetty's late father had borrowed Rs 21 Lakh and was supposed to pay the amount to him, with interest in January 2017.
However, Shilpa has denied all the allegations and stated that she will be up for hearing on January 29 at the Magistrate Court. As per reports in a leading daily, the moneylender claims that he shared a good relationship with Shetty's father and it was in July 2015 that he had provided him with the money for his business.
