After this, on November 22, 2009, I and Raj Kundra got married. Even before the wedding, I told Raj Kundra that I want to stay in India after marriage. That’s why we settled in India after marriage. In the year 2009, Raj Kundra invested Rs 75 crore in the IPL team named Rajasthan Royals. There are 4 international partners, with around 13 per cent holding of Raj Kundra. After betting accusations in the IPL were levelled against Kundra, he was sacked from Rajasthan Royals team holding.

I have 24.50 per cent share in this company, there are 7 thousand shareholders in this company. Raj Kundra is the director in Viaan Industries Limited and Umesh Kamat works as an executive assistant. I was in this company from April 2015 to July 2020 as a director and then resigned from the post due to personal reasons.
