Gehana Vasisth told Navbharat Times in an interview, “Just a few days before I got arrested, I went to Raj’s office. There I got to know that he is planning to launch an app called Bollyfame. They were planning to showcase reality shows, chat shows, music videos and non-bold films the app. We also discussed a few scripts and thought about casting Shamita Shetty in one script, Sai Tamhankar and a few other actors.” Gehana further claimed that she was supposed to direct these movies and that Shamita Shetty had agreed for the same with Umesh Kamat, who is Raj Kundra’s PA and also an accused in this case.
Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra was arrested on July 19 by the Mumbai Crime Brach and was sent to police custody. The businessman was named as the ‘key conspirator’ in the case involving creation and publishing of porn videos through the ‘Hotshots’ app. While Raj as stated that he sold ‘Hotshots’ for $25,000 in 2019, it is being reported that Raj Kundra and his UK based brother-in-law Pradeep Bakshi worked together on it. According to IANS, Raj is the owner of Viaan Industries Ltd, while Pradeep Bakshi — a British citizen, who is married to Kundra’s sister — is the Chairman of Kenrin Ltd., London. Both the companies worked on the mobile app called ‘HotShots Digital Entertainment’, developed by Kenrin Ltd. Raj Kundra reportedly supplied the content and controlled the UK firm from his Viaan Industries office.
