  • Sonali Shetty brought few street children to the Shiv Sagar Restaurant located in connaught place to celebrate her husband's birthday.
  • She has been protesting outside the restaurant as the owner misbehaved with the children.
  • Shetty said that the owner refused to serve the kids and misbehaved with the kids as they were not well dressed.
  • A public relationship officer of Shiv Sagar restaurant, Roma Malhotra said," The lady had brought few kids along with her to the restaurant but kids started to create lot of 'tamasha' inside. As a restaurateur we have rights reserved to deny service if our guests are getting disturbed. Don't think we did anything wrong."
