Shilpa Shetty Kundra has issued a statement on social media, saying she and her family do not deserve a media trial.

Shilpa's husband, businessman Raj Kundra, has been arrested in an alleged porn production and distribution case. He has been granted judicial custody till August 10.

Shilpa's statement comes after the Bombay High Court reportedly refused to restrict media and social media platforms from publishing reports talking about her. The court reportedly told the actor that she has chosen a public life.

"Yes! The past few days have been challenging, on every front," Shilpa wrote in her statement posted on Instagram. "There have been a lot of rumours and accusations. A lot of unwarranted aspersions on me cast by the media and (not so) well wishers as well. A lot of trolling/questions posed...not only to me but also to my family."

"MY STAND...I HAVE NOT COMMENTED YET and will continue to refrain from doing so on this case as it is subjudice, so please stop attributing false quotes on my behalf. Reiterating my philosophy of, as a celebrity 'Never complain, never explain'. All I will say is, as it's an ongoing investigation, I have full faith in the Mumbai Police & the Indian judiciary," she added.

"As a family, we are taking recourse to all our available legal remedies. But, till then I humbly request you - especially as a MOTHER - to respect our privacy for my children's sake and request you to refrain from commenting on half-baked information without verifying the veracity of the same," Shilpa continued.

"I am a proud law-abiding Indian citizen and a hardworking professional for the last 29 years. People have put their faith in ME & I've never let anyone down. So, most importantly, I request you to respect my family's and 'my right' to privacy in these times. We don't deserve a media trial. Please let the law take its course. Satyamev Jayate!" she concluded.
