In her first post since her husband Raj Kundra's arrest, Shilpa Shetty has shared a quote from a book about surviving challenges.

Kundra was arrested by the Mumbai police crime branch in a case, which the investigators alleged related to creation of pornographic films and publishing them via apps.

Shetty took to her Instagram story and posted a quote by American author James Thurber that read, 'Do not look back in anger; or forward in fear but around in awareness.

'We look back in anger at the people who've hurt us, the frustrations we've felt, the bad luck we've endured. We look forward in fear at the possibility that we might lose our job, contract a disease, or suffer the death of a loved one.The place we need to be is right here, right now, not looking anxiously at what has been or what might be, but fully aware of what is.

'I take a deep breath, knowing that I'm lucky to be alive.

'I have survived challenges in the past and will survive challenges in the future. Nothing need distract me from living my life today.'


According to the police, several WhatsApp chats revealed that Kundra was involved in the financial dealings of an app and its contents.

The police also said three women have come forward with complaints in the case, saying they were 'forced to act in pornographic movies'.

According to the police, the accused took advantage of struggling models, actors and other workers and made them work in these movies.
