Actress-model Gehana Vasisth, who was arrested in February this year for her alleged involvement in a porn racket and is currently out on bail, has grabbed headlines once again after businessman Raj Kundra was arrested on July 19 for allegedly being the ‘key conspirator’ in an international porn racket and the mastermind behind creating and publishing porn content through various mobile applications.
In an exclusive interview with Navbharat Times, Gehana has revealed that Raj Kundra was planning to launch an app called Bollyfame and cast sister-in-law Shamita Shetty in a movie.
In her interview, Gehana said, “Just a few days before his arrest, I went to his office. There, I got to know that he is planning to launch an app called Bollyfame. He was planning to do chat shows, reality shows, music videos and feature films for the app. There was no plan of involving ‘bold scenes’ in these films.”
“We also discussed on the scripts. Then we thought about casting Shamita Shetty for one script, Sai Tamhankar and two other artists for another. I was supposed to direct these films and was thinking about it just a few days before his arrest,” Gehana added.
Gehana added that she has never met Shamita Shetty and knew that her particular job was to only direct the film and she stuck to it. She further stated that she has no clue about “Shamita Shetty’s fees or conditions” for the film.
Arrested earlier this week, Raj Kundra was booked under Indian Penal Code Sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292 and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays), and other relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
