Hotshots App Case: Businessman Raj Kundra, who was arrested in connection with the production of pornographic films, allegedly had a flourishing adult film racket during the COVID-19 lockdown. According to the Mumbai police crime branch, there was another app, termed as ‘Plan B, Bollyfame’, present as backup in case the primary adult app called Hotshot got banned.

Hotshots’ description on stores reads, “private content from hot photoshoots, short movies, and experience of the lifestyle of celebrities from all over the world”.

On July 19, Raj Kundra, husband of actor Shilpa Shetty was arrested by Mumbai Police for allegedly being a “key conspirator” in a case related to the creation and distribution of pornographic films through mobile apps.

Earlier on Tuesday, while addressing a media gathering, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Milind Bharambe informed that Raj Kundra began this business over a year ago, he was allegedly earning lakhs on a daily basis.

The content created by Kundra was sent to a London-based Kenrin Limited, owned by his brother-in-law Pradeep Bakshi, where it was uploaded on the mobile app.

“As he couldn’t upload these videos from India on adult app called Hotshots, he provided the content to a foreign platform by sending videos via WeTransfer”.

Bharambe further said that the documents of financial transactions are being analysed to find the exact earnings. However, Rs 7.5 crore in various accounts has been frozen so far

According to TOI, Kundra’s company Viaan Industries had a tie up with the UK based firm that streamed porn videos through the mobile app, However, the 45-year-old alleges that he sold  ‘Hotshots’ for $25,000 back in 2019.

Reportedly, the crime branch has found a bank transfer into Raj Kundra’s account made by the app. The last transaction was made in January this year, almost a month before he was arrested for operating the app.

As per reports, the Mumbai police has seized servers that stored content for all the apps owned by Raj Kundra and his associates.

Back in February 2021, the Mumbai Police received a tip-off about an adult film being shot at a bungalow in Madh Island. In a raid that followed, the police found two people allegedly in a compromising state in the bungalow. Five people involved in the filming process were arrested and a woman was rescued, who was made a complainant in the case. Eventually, five months later, it led to the arrest of Raj Kundra.
