New Delhi: Shilpa Shetty’s husband, businessman and actress Raj Kundra, has been detained by police in connection with the creation and publication of pornographic films. On Monday night, he was arrested by the Mumbai Police Crime Branch in connection with the production of pornographic films and their distribution via various apps (July 19, 2021).
In order to clear the air about Shilpa Shetty’s involvement in the case involving the streaming of pornographic content via a mobile app, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime), Milind Bharambe stated that the police have yet to find any active role of the actress. During a press conference, he stated this.
“In February, the Crime Branch in Mumbai opened an investigation into pornographic films. New actors were promised roles in web series and short stories, and they were asked to perform daring and naked audition scenes. Female actors objected and filed a complaint with the Crime Branch, which resulted in the filing of a case. Nine people were arrested during the investigation. Some people use coercion to get such films made. A man named Umesh Kamat, who was in charge of the India operations for Raj Kundra’s business, was arrested “According to ANI, he said.
“We haven’t been able to find an active role (for Shilpa Shetty) as of yet. We’re looking into it. We will urge victims to come forward and contact the Crime Branch Mumbai, and we will take appropriate action “Bharambe went on to say.
According to the Joint Commissioner of Police, all of the pornographic content was uploaded to a mobile application called Hotshots, which was owned by a London-based company.
“During a thorough investigation, it was discovered that Raj Kundra’s company in Viaan had a partnership with Kenrin, a London-based company that owns the mobile application Hotshots. All narcissistic content created in Mumbai was published on Hotshots, which was based in Mumbai. Following complaints, the Google Play Store and the iPhone removed this app “Bharambe explained.
“We searched Raj Kundra’s offices with court permission and discovered a few clips as well. That is why Raj Kundra and his IT director were detained “He went on to say
At least 11 people, including Raj Kundra, have been arrested in the case for alleged involvement in a pornographic production case.
