Raj Kundra, who is married to actor Shilpa Shetty, was arrested on July 19, by the crime branch of the Mumbai Police. YouTuber Puneet Kaur has said that businessman Raj Kundra once sent her a direct message in connection with the supposed pornography for which he has now been remanded into judicial custody.
Kaur has said that Raj sent her a direct message about the Hotshots app, which she at the time thought was a case of hacking. On Instagram Stories, Puneet Kaur wrote, "Brooo do you OGS remember our verified DM video where he reached out to me for hotshots!?!? I'm dead.” She continued, "I can’t even WTF this man was really luring people we literally thought it was spam when he sent that DM to me!? Jesus Christ man rots in jail.”
She also added excerpts of the video in question, in which she and two others could be seen discussing the DMs, and wondering if Raj's account had been hacked. "This man has had a midlife crisis, probably, messing with girls to go to Hotshot.com to do something strange, I don't know" one man in the video is heard saying after the three Googled the website. "I think his account got hacked," the other man says, and the first man notes, "That would be giving him the benefit of the doubt."
