Actress and influencer, Shetty, felt as a public figure, she should express her side of the story. All hell broke lose when paparazzi tried to get a shot of Shilpa and her husband Raj Kundra as they left the Bastian last Friday. Moments later, she discovered that her bodyguards had beaten up the paparazzi and they had filed a complaint.
Shilpa was appauled by the incident, and released the following message on her Instagram page…
The management for the Bastian apologized for the incident as well and made it clear the bodyguards had nothing to do with Shetty Kundra, saying, “We’re saddened and shocked by the incident that took place outside Bastian last night. We have celebrities and well-known guests visiting us frequently and every experience so far has been smooth. During last night’s incident, the people involved were personnel of Tough Security who were hired for Bastian via external vendors – as is the practice, the security agency assigns the personnel to us and other establishments based on who is available that day. All the Bastian staff as well as the management, were inside the restaurant on the second floor at the time of the incident. We were made aware of the same a while after it began. This was a highly unfortunate situation that escalated beyond anything we could have ever imagined.”
