Raj Kundra recently opened up about her wife, actor Shilpa Shetty's reaction to his acting debut with UT69. While Shilpa was initially hesitant about the idea, he said she later changed her mind and was rather supportive. 

Raj told News18 that Shilpa thought that the film wouldn't get made as it was ‘dicey.’ Also read: UT69 trailer, Shilpa Shetty's husband Raj Kundra plays himself, gives glimpse of his life inside jail 

Raj jokingly said, “She (Shilpa) was a few feet away from me when I decided to tell her that I am making a film. I didn’t want to go too close to her.” “I told her that I have a script and was waiting for her answer. 

When I turned away from her, a flying chappal came at my face. I think she thought that the idea was a little dicey first. Maybe she thought that the film wouldn’t get made,” he added. 

Raj also revealed how he convinced Shilpa after a narration by the director Shahnawaz Ali. “He gave her a very small narration. 

She thought about it and realised that it wasn’t about the case of against the system in any way. She felt it was a very human story.” ”She was very supportive. She asked me, ‘Tu acting kar lega (will you be able to act)?’
