Raj is my soulmate, Shilpa Shetty rubbishes divorce rumours

Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra has been married or the past seven years and were blessed with a boy Viaan but recently rumour surfaced that due to some trouble in their paradise, the couple is parting ways. However, Shilpa Shetty strongly denied such false speculation and opens her about her divorce rumour with hubby Raj Kundra.

In an interview with TOI, Shilpa Shetty said, "Can you believe that kya sochkar likhte hai yaar. Even Raj and my friends were so embarrassed. I think some of my friends were having a party and they were scared to call Raj and me as they believed the rumour. One of them called and said 'accha humne ghar par party rakhi hui hai aa jaana'. As I was travelling, I got to know from them about the rumour.'' 

''I think it's part and parcel of being a celebrity. People sometimes are bound to write rubbish. I have learnt to take it in my stride but that was very distasteful,'' she said. 

There is no smoke without fire, to which Shilpa Shetty commented, "Why would there be a problem? You are mad or what? I love my husband. He is my soulmate, touchwood! I think because I kept quiet, it was blown out of proportion.'' Shilpa Shetty added, ''I am not one of those who really believes that I need to clarify anything to anyone. Unless it is something that I just feel is uncalled for. I always believe 'agar maine isse zyaada importance diya toh aur bada ho jayega'. That's the reason I kept quiet and I suddenly saw it snowballing. I even called my PR, who is a very old friend of mine, and I said what the hell is happening, you will have to stop this now, it's really irritating me."

When asked how she handles negative rumours, Shilpa Shetty said, "I switch off it's not possible to survive,otherwise.''

It was reported earlier that due to some trouble Raj is spending more time in his office than at home with his family.
