In a recent interview with Spotboye, Raj Kundra has quashed all claims made by the tobacco heir.
Shilpa Shetty’s husband and British-Indian businessman has cleared the air around the controversy involving tobacco heir Sachiin Joshi’s police complaint. According to media reports, Joshi had lodged an FIR in Mumbai, stating that Kundra and Shetty committed fraud during their tenure as the directors of Satyog Gold Scheme.
Media reports also stated that he was reportedly lured and cheated by SGPL’s ‘Satyug Gold Scheme’, launched around 2014. Ever since the controversy arose, Kundra hadn’t made any comments on the news.
However, in a recent conversation with Spotboye, Raj Kundra has broken his silence over the matter. He said that the news floating in the media is baseless, since he and his wife hadn’t received any complaint from the NRI businessman. Kundra also called out the media for becoming accessories to falsehood.

Talking about the alleged ‘scam’, Raj Kundra said, “Just stating facts to correct a false narrative that’s doing rounds in the media. This is with reference to the news about a complaint filed by an NRI (gutkha baron’s son Sachin Joshi) for losses suffered, following an investment in Satyug Gold Pvt Ltd.”
“Firstly and most importantly, Shilpa and I have received no such complaint as claimed by the gentleman in question. The website has all the relevant details and contact information for those who want their queries answered. With all the assistance we’ve made available, it is quite underhanded to say that there was no remedy,” he added.
During his interview with Spotboye, Raj Kundra also requested the media to perform a cursory fact check before publishing information, so as to not become an accessory in misleading viewers and readers. He also revealed that Joshi has not paid his dues. “All businesses have proper channels of communication and the whole world is dealing with us. Why does only one person need to reach media before contacting us? Very malicious indeed!” he said.
Kundra also stated that he has already shared a copy of a letter sent to him with the local police station where Joshi filed a complaint. According to him, the letter clearly mentions that Sachiin Joshi hasn’t paid his dues, and is blatantly lying and misleading the authorities by not contacting Kundra and his wife even once.
