Poonam Panday and Sherlyn Chopra%u2019s connection
According to DNAIndia, the case about the creation of pornographic films was first filed by a woman in February. Many people were arrested and were found to have links with Raj Kundra. However, Raj Kundra had denied the allegations.
Actor-model Sherlyn Chopra and Poonam Panday are now in news as their old recorded statements to the Maharashtra Cyber Cell regarding this case have gone viral.
Shockingly, they had earlier confessed to being brought to the adult industry by Raj Kundra. According to a report on india.com, Poonam Panday had a contract with Raj%u2019s company Armsprime Media. The company has several apps, Poonam%u2019s being one of them. The app was allegedly an adult app being taken care of by Raj Kundra%u2019s firm. Although the contract had ended 8 months ago, the actor had filed a complaint against Raj Kundra and his firm in 2020 for using content featuring her even after the termination of the same.
Armsprime app also manages Sherlyn Chopra%u2019s app among others.
