YouTuber Puneet Kaur has claimed that businessman Raj Kundra once sent her a direct message in connection with the supposed pornography for which he has now been remanded into police custody. Kundra, who is married to actor Shilpa Shetty, was arrested by the crime branch of the Mumbai Police on Monday for his alleged involvement in making and selling pornographic material.
"Brooo do you OGS remember our verified DM video where he reached out to me for hotshots!?!? Im deaaad.” She continued, "I can’t even WTF this mans was really luring people -we literally thought it was spam when he sent that DM to me!? Jesus Christ man rot in jail,” she posted on her Instagram handle.
The YouTuber also added excerpts of the video in question, in which she along with two of her male friends could be seen discussing the DMs.
"This man has had a midlife crisis, probably, messing with girls to go to Hotshot.com to do something strange, I don't know" one man in the video is heard saying.
"I think his account got hacked," the other man says, and the first man notes, "That would be giving him the benefit of the doubt."
In February this year, five people were taken into custody for allegedly forcing women into porn movies. It was alleged that the accused promised to cast the actors in web series and on the day of the shoot, which would take place at a rented bungalow on the outskirts of Mumbai, they would change the script completely and threaten them to expose themselves in front of the camera.
Following the shoot, the accused made the videos available on mobile apps and offered subscriptions. Not just that, they would also put up advertisements on social media platforms.
“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 said in a statement.
