Shilpa Shetty’s husband and businessman Raj Kundra was arrested Monday by Mumbai Crime Branch in an alleged p * rn production case. He is presumed to be the main conspirator of the 11 arrests made by the police in connection with the case. Now, the latest report reveals how much the defendant had earned per film.
Kundra reportedly lured women into acting in p * rnographic films, with promises of roles in web series. Interestingly, his relative Pradeep Bakshi, who lives in the UK, is also involved in the scandal. He also runs a company called Kenrin Production House.
According to The Times Of India report, Raj Kundra and his team have earned an average of Rs 5 lakh per film that was released on mobile apps, including Hotshots. The police have frozen 7.5 million rupees in various accounts related to the businessman.
Mumbai Police Joint Commissioner (Crime) Milind Bharambe during a press conference revealed that the free downloadable app was removed from both Apple and Google Playstore because of the type of content. Raj Kundra has been arrested under sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intent), 292 and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) of the IPC.
Controversial model and actress Gehana Vasisth, who was also allegedly shot and uploaded as many as 87 videos on her website, has opened up about the scandal. She was arrested in February this year in the same case. She told the publication: “I have a small request so that everyone does not compare the bold and erotic cinema with p * rn. Raj Kundra and I have been arrested for the same case, we have the same investigation going on. I know what was being done under Kundra’s company. I have worked as a hero in 3 films produced for the Raj Kundra app. He never forced me to do anything, they paid me according to the work I did and deserved ”.
Gehana further said, “I had no problems with the job or the payment I received. I had no objections to the content, nor did I have any bad experiences working on the sets. Those movies came out really well and none of those movies was p * rn. Those in doubt can use Google search and search for those movies and my other work. None of them can be classified as p * rn “.
The Gandii Baat actress had spent a great deal of time in jail after her arrest earlier this year. Speaking of the same, Gehana Vasisth said: “I have spent five precious months in jail for a crime that I never committed. My accounts have been frozen, my cell phones and my laptop have been confiscated. My life has turned into hell. I haven’t had enough money to spend since the day I was released from custody. Not only that, I even suffered a heart attack and was hospitalized for 10-12 days. In prison, I couldn’t breathe due to the type of torture I endured and the type of environment and people that I had to endure there. I didn’t deserve it. “
