Entertainment Desk September 17, 2021

Bollywood diva Shilpa Shetty has recently told Mumbai police that she has remained 'too busy' to know anything about the porn apps or any other activities of her husband Raj Kundra, who is currently under custody in the pornography racket case. According to The Indian Express, the actor further stated that Kundra had launched Viaan Industries Ltd around April 2015 and she was on the board till July 2020 when she quit owing to personal reasons.

"I was too busy with work, I did not know what Raj Kundra was up to," the actor and reality show judge says in a statement included in the charge sheet filed before a Mumbai court.

According to the police probe, Kundra allegedly used his company's Mumbai offices to manage the daily operations of the sleaze content racket and upload it through the HotShots and Bollyfame apps for paid viewers.

The nearly 1,500-page charge sheet also contains details of the investigations and the evidence collected against the 11 accused arrested to date, plus two others wanted to be accused in the same case, Kundra's brother-in-law Sandeep Bakshi and Yash Thakur - to show how the entire paid sleaze content racket was being run.

The police during its raid on Kundra's homes on July 23 and the Viaan offices in Andheri on July 24, had seized incriminating documents, laptops, portable hard disks, and also recovered a laptop from Thorpe. All the electronic devices were subjected to various forensic tests to gather further evidence pertaining to the sensational case.
