Tiff with the Film Director

In 2014, Sherlyn wrote insulting tweets against film director Rupesh Paul after apparently quitting the English film ‘Kamasutra 3D.’ Her expletive-laden language ranged from Sherlyn tweeting to say Paul was a “Mother****er who deserved a punch on his face” to “Mr Pimp who gave me high profile work.” She also wrote “Gobar ke murrabbe ko pata toh chale ki uska paala kis ‘type’ ki ladki se padaa…”, and “Rupesh ko nanga dekhne ke khauf se Dhritarashtra janm se hi andha tha.” Her torrent of tweets also insisted she had shot for the film for only five days, a reality that became possible because her popularity helped Paul find producers. Later, Rupesh Paul filed a defamation case against her alleging that the actor had abused him on a social networking site. In his complaint, filed before Ernakulam Chief Judicial Magistrate Court, Paul alleged that she had commented abusive and obscene comments toward him on the social networking site Twitter. Earlier, Chopra had lodged a complaint at a police station in Mumbai alleging that Paul had not paid the remaining Rs 7 lakh of her total remuneration for acting in the film. A few years later, Rupesh Paul and Sherlyn Chopra decided to bury the hatchet and put an end to the months-long exchange of abuses. Apparently, the two realized that a third person was the reason behind the issue. Rupesh said in an interview that Sherlyn showed him text messages sent by the said person and he was shocked.

Feud with Raj Kundra

In 2019, Poonam Pandey moved the Bombay High Court to file a case against Raj Kundra and his associates who collaborated with her for an app. They allegedly used content featuring her even after the contract was terminated. In 2021, Sherlyn Chopra again filed molestation against the Indian businessman Raj Kundra’s firm Armsprime Media. However, she then terminated her contract. According to sources in the Cyber Crime branch of Maharashtra Police, Sherlyn Chopra along with the Indian actress Poonam Pandey were accused in a pornography case involving Raj Kundra. Raj Kundra was subsequently remanded to judicial custody. The Cyber Crime branch recorded their statements, wherein both actresses made allegations against Raj Kundra. He had obtained interim bail from the court, and the final hearing for his bail application was scheduled for later that month. It was reported that Sherlyn Chopra had a contract with Raj Kundra’s Armsprime Media to provide pornographic content for app-based companies outside India. Sherlyn Chopra’s former lawyer, Charanjeet Chanderpal, who secured anticipatory bail for her from the Bombay High Court, revealed that she used to run her own app with semi-pornography. She said that her work caught Raj Kundra’s attention when it wasn’t doing well, and Kundra promised her 50 per cent of the profits. The agreement was even signed by Raj Kundra himself. Between June 2019 and July 2020, they generated a significant income. However, Sherlyn Chopra realised she wasn’t receiving the agreed-upon money and requested the agreement’s termination after a year. Sherlyn Chopra started her own app again, which did well initially, but her content started getting pirated in August 2020. She filed a piracy complaint and in February 2021, she alleged that Raj Kundra had pushed her into the full-fledged porn industry. Earlier in the same year, Raj Kundra claimed to have sold his shares and submitted investment and exit documents to the police. Following Raj Kundra’s arrest, Sherlyn Chopra publicly criticised him and accused him of sexual assault. She claimed he described his marital relations with Shilpa Shetty as ‘complicated.’ Sherlyn was questioned in the pornography case and shared details of it. During previous questioning by police, Sherlyn revealed that Raj visited her house unannounced, kissed her without consent, and responded to her resistance by discussing his marital issues with Shilpa Shetty. Sherlyn provided insights into her questioning during the pornography case, stating that she was asked about her agreement with Armsprime, the terms, the number of videos shot, and relationships with Raj Kundra and other companies he owned. Later, Raj sent a defamation notice of Rs 50 crore against Sherlyn. Following this Sherlyn Chopra also sent a defamation notice to Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty, alleging threats and seeking Rs 75 crore for mental harassment. She shared a copy of the notice on social media, indicating her intention to stand up against the situation.

Fight with Rakhi Sawant

In 2023, the Mumbai Police shared that Bollywood celebrities Sherlyn and Rakhi Sawant had filed FIRs against each other for using objectionable language. Following a complaint by Chopra, an FIR was registered against Rakhi Sawant and advocate Falguni Brahmbhatt. The Mumbai Police stated that the FIR was filed under multiple sections of the IPC and IT Act. The complaint alleged that Rakhi Sawant and Falguni Brahmbhatt had shown an objectionable video of Chopra during a press conference and used inappropriate language. Conversely, Rakhi Sawant lodged a case against Sherlyn Chopra at Mumbai’s Oshiwara police station. Rakhi Sawant explained that Sherlyn Chopra had accused her of changing boyfriends in a video posted on YouTube and Instagram on 6 November 2022. Sherlyn’s video reportedly contained objectionable remarks and abusive language directed towards Rakhi. The Oshiwara police initiated further investigation by registering a case under sections 500, 504, 506, and 509 of the IPC. Earlier, Sherlyn Chopra took to Twitter to express that nudity should not be equated with consent, amidst her ongoing controversy with Rakhi Sawant. In response to the situation, Rakhi Sawant shared her feelings with the media, explaining that Sherlyn’s comments had negatively impacted her personal life. Her boyfriend had questioned her due to Sherlyn’s allegations, causing turmoil. The feud between Sherlyn Chopra and Rakhi Sawant escalated after Rakhi expressed support for Sajid Khan and Raj Kundra. Raj alleged that Sherlyn Chopra produced explicit content on the streaming platform OnlyFans. He tweeted about her content and questioned her stance on vulgarity and women’s rights.

  • She also goes by the name Angel and Meneka Chopra.
  • In childhood, Sherlyn Chopra aspired to be a doctor, influenced not only by her late father’s profession but also by her fascination with science. During her school years, Sherlyn used to consider her ugly duckling and struggled to make friends. She often felt that others found her dull or even considered her a psychopath. Sherlyn found solace in books, which became her closest companions. Reflecting on her academic achievements, she was a school topper. However, as time passed, she grew disenchanted with her studies. In an interview, she confessed that she eventually became tired of academics, leading her to seek exploration of her own sexuality.
  • Sherlyn once shared that in her childhood, her parents frequently engaged in fights and verbal abuse towards each other. Unable to endure their emotional and physical conflicts, she decided to leave home. She sought refuge at her paternal aunt’s residence, after which she moved to a girls’ hostel. For the next 3-4 years, Sherlyn resided in the hostel while continuing her college studies.
  • In an interview, she shared that she started sleeping with men to gather enough funds for her college and tuition fees. Gradually, it evolved into her lifestyle. Given that it offered an easy source of money, she found no issue with it. She would engage in her activities and meet individuals who were willing to pay for her companionship. This pattern persisted for a couple of years, and she took pride in being self-sufficient without relying on her parents or relatives. The feeling of independence was empowering. However, she wasn’t aware that achieving independence while dealing with internal conflicts daily wasn’t truly being independent.
  • In an interview, she shared that she once had a good relationship with her family that eventually got affected due to her profession. She said that she was not in touch with her family for a very long time. Further, she recalled the conflicts that arose within her family. She had disagreements with her family regarding religion, culture, and her profession. She acknowledged that her parents were displeased with her choice to lead a life on her own terms. They believed she was too young and unprepared to navigate the world independently. Despite her emotional vulnerability, Sherlyn believed her decision to live autonomously was the right one. She saw it as a necessity at the time, preferring solitude over the company of adults who struggled to exhibit maturity, especially in front of children.
  • In 2012, she did a photoshoot for Playboy magazine. However, there was a palpable curiosity surrounding whether she engaged in an intimate relationship with the magazine’s founder Hugh Hefner.

However, she swiftly recognized that she still had numerous commitments ahead, particularly working alongside Ekta Kapoor, and she was determined to achieve significant accomplishments. She resolved not to surrender. Faced with two options, the doctor proposed either dialysis or a kidney transplant. Nevertheless, she didn’t believe her family cared for her enough to donate a kidney. The prospect of undergoing dialysis, which would have required three weekly hospital visits, was not something she desired for her life. After a span of three months of taking medications, her kidney failure started to reverse. This unexpected turn of events made her feel as though she had been granted a second chance at life.

Sherlyn expressed her disappointment at the authorities’ lack of interest in properly investigating the matter. She stressed the importance of filing her complaint and recording her statement to ensure a thorough inquiry. While she didn’t demand Sajid Khan’s immediate arrest, she did expect a comprehensive investigation. She disclosed that her fans and social media users speculated that Sajid Khan’s alleged connections with Salman Khan were influencing the police’s response. Despite these challenges, Sherlyn affirmed her determination to pursue justice relentlessly. Sherlyn Chopra joined the chorus of objections against Sajid Khan’s participation in Bigg Boss 16.

  • In 2023, Sherlyn Chopra lodged a police complaint against financer Sunil Lodha in Mumbai. Following the complaint, she held a press conference where she provided detailed information about her experience of sexual harassment. During the conference, Sherlyn Chopra disclosed that she had filed a molestation case against businessman Sunil Lodha in Mumbai while claiming to provide money for a video recording. When she resisted, he used abusive language and even threatened her. Recounting the incident, Sherlyn shared that on 12 April 2023, after returning from Dubai, she was informed by her manager about an eager investor who wanted to meet her. The investor, Sunil Parasmani Lodha, expressed admiration for her work and intended to invest in her project. He provided a token amount through her manager and also gave her another sum as ‘good luck’. Sherlyn informed him that the amount wasn’t enough for her project’s needs and indicated a requirement of Rs 15 to Rs 20 lakh for a satisfactory music video. Sunil Lodha promised to send the rest of the money to her account and engaged in conversation until 12:30 AM. Sherlyn offered him a ride home since he claimed not to have one, and he was dropped off after her. However, he later wished to see her house, which she allowed. He was offered drinks and vegetarian food, and they engaged in conversation on the couch. During their interaction, Sunil suddenly touched her breast to which Sherlyn expressed her discomfort and he apologised. He then confessed that he found her attractive and struggled to control himself. Sherlyn asserted that while she might be attractive, she wasn’t public property. Despite asking him to leave, he persisted and followed her into her bedroom under the pretext of needing a charger. Sherlyn attempted to contact her manager to address the situation, but he didn’t respond. She told Sunil that she wanted to discuss the matter in a group meeting the next morning, which angered him. He then revealed that he had paid her manager for spending time with her and not for investing in her music video. Sherlyn denied knowledge of this arrangement, leading to a confrontation where he verbally abused and threatened her. A case was registered against Sunil Lodha under sections 354, 506, and 509 of the Indian Penal Code.
