Raj, who is married to Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, was arrested on July 19 for allegedly making and publishing pornographic content through various mobile apps. A few days back, police recorded Shilpa’s statement as they questioned her if she knew about Kundra’s alleged link to pornographic films. The actress said that she was unaware of the exact nature of the content on ‘Hotshots’ – the mobile app, Mumbai Police sources had told ANI. She said that there was another accused – London-based Pradeep Bakshi, Kundra’s brother-in-law who was involved with the app.
