A couple of days after businessman Raj Kundra was arrest by Mumbai Police, Bollywood singer Mika Singh talking to media people in Mumbai said that he doesn't know much about Kundra's app but said that he is a 'nice guy'.
Raj Kundra, who is Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty's husband, was arrested on Monday evening and was named 'key conspirator' by Mumbai Police in the creation and distribution of porn videos via his apps.
While talking to media persons, Mika revealed that he has seen one of Kundra's app but did not find anything in it. He further added that he doesn't have much knowledge about the app which is in news - Hotshots.
"Main toh wait hi kar raha hoon ke kya hoga. Let's see. Jo bhi hoga acha hoga, mujhe itna knowledge nahi hai unke app ke baare mein. Maine ek app dekhi thi, wo simple app thi. Zyada kuch tha nahi uske andar so let's hope for the best," he said.
"I think he's a nice guy, Raj Kundra. Ab dekhte hai kya sach hai aur kya jhoot hai jo court hi bata sakta hai," the Bollywood singer added.
Raj Kundra has been booked under sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292 and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) besides relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
“There was a case registered with the Crime Branch Mumbai in February 2021 about creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some apps. We’ve arrested Mr Raj Kundra in this case on 19/7/21 as he appears to be the key conspirator of this. We have sufficient evidences regarding this,” the Mumbai police commissioner, Hemant Nagrale, said.
The police also said that the businessman tried to mislead the investigation agencies by selling his app - Hotshots. Reportedly, the app was sold to the UK-based company Kenrin Pvt Ltd which is owned by his brother-in-law Pradeep Bakshi but is controlled from Mumbai. According to police, he sold the app for $25,000 in 2019.
