It’s just erotica, not porn: Shilpa Shetty

As investigations into the porn racket case against businessman and Shilpa Shettys husband, Raj Kundra, progress, the actress recorded her statement with the police at her residence in Juhu on Friday.

According to sources, it was decided to record her statement after the police suspected that Shilpa may have known about Rajs business related to the app, HotShot, where video content was uploaded.

The actress is believed to have told the police that the video content is erotica and not pornography. She also maintained that her husband has nothing to do with the entire business and she is not aware of the existence of pornographic videos claimed by Mumbai police.

While recording her statement, the Crime Branch asked Shilpa if she was aware of the alleged pornography racket run by her husband and Viaan Industries, a beneficiary. Shilpa served as a director of the company till 2020.

An officer said, She said that movies available on Hotshot are not pornography but erotica. She also said that nowadays, similar content is available on the various OTT platforms and in fact, some are more obscene than what is available on Hotshot.

According to sources, like Raj, Shilpa too denied being involved in the production of the alleged pornographic videos. Raj has said that everything was handled by his brother-in-law, Pradeep Bakshi, from London, with whom he only spoke on WhatsApp.
