Raj Kundra porn case: ED files money laundering complaint against Shilpa Shetty’s husband

The Law Enforcement Directorate (ED) has registered a money laundering case against businessman Raj Kundra in connection with the production and distribution of pornographic films. Kundra is married to Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty.

According to sources close to ED, Kundra formed a company called Arms Prime Media Limited in February 2019 and developed an app called “Hotshots” which was later sold to UK-based company Kenrin.

Kenrin’s CEO is Pradeep Bakshi, who is actually Raj Kundra’s brother-in-law. Moreover, for the maintenance of the Hotshots application, Kundra’s company, Viaan Industries, had linked up with Kenrin and for this, the transaction of crores of rupees was carried out on 13 bank accounts of Viaan, sources said. .

Sources further stated that the Hotshots app is actually a platform for porn movies, which were made in India and uploaded to the Hotshots app to offer subscriptions. The amount of money earned from subscribers was processed on behalf of Kundra’s company, Viaan Industries. In this way, the money earned from the porn films arrived in Kundra’s company account circulating in the UK.

Raj Kundra was arrested on July 19, 2021 along with 11 others on charges related to the alleged creation of pornographic films. On September 20, Kundra was released on bail by a Mumbai court in the pornography case on a bond of Rs 50,000.

Allegations were brought against Kundra for allegedly producing and distributing pornographic films using a mobile application called “Hotshots”. On the other hand, Kundra refuted all the charges against him claiming that he was falsely implicated.
