Businessman and Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra, has been arrested for his alleged involvement in a pornographic case. The Police took Kundra into custody late last night in a case relating to the ‘creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some apps’. He was produced before the Esplanade Court along with fellow accused Ryan Tharp and has been sent to judicial custody till Friday, July 23.
Meanwhile, after the news of Raj Kundra’s arrest spread like a wildfire, several old tweets of Kundra from 2012 started resurfacing online. Twitter users also found the irony in his bio description that read, “Life is about making the right choices” while others began trending an old video from the sets of the Kapil Sharma Show that had the host asking Kundra how he makes his money to support his lavish lifestyle. Added to this, Twitter was flooded with memes, all in good humour.
On the other hand, Poonam Pandey, who had earlier moved Bombay High Court to file a criminal case against Kundra and his associates, sent her heart out to Shilpa Shetty and her kids. “At this moment my heart goes out to Shilpa Shetty & her kids. I can’t imagine what she must be going through. So, I refuse to use this opportunity to highlight my trauma,” she said in a statement. Poonam had reportedly filed a police complaint in 2019 against Kundra and subsequently registered a case at the Bombay high court alleging fraud and theft.
