YouTuber Puneet Kaur took to her Instagram story to accuse Raj, of reaching out to her through DMs for “Hotshots”(a mobile application). Another actress, Sagarika Shona Suman accused Raj Kundra and his former employee, Umesh Kamat of demanding her to give nude auditions.
Puneet Kaur wrote on Instagram feeds, “Brooo do you OGS remember our verified DM video where he reached out to me for hotshots!?!? Im deaaad.”
The content creator in her next story said that she first thought that this was a spam message, She posted, “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.”
In another instance, actress Sagarika Shona Suman accused Raj Kundra and his former employee Umesh Kamat of demanding a nude audion through video conferencing.
The actress said that Umesh Kamat offered her a chance to play a role in a web series owned and produced by Raj Kundra, asking her to give a nude audition via a video call. Umesh Kamat was also arrested by the Mumbai Police, for uploading pornographic and obscene videos, which were shot by Gehana Vaisisth on a social media app for money.
“I am a model and I am working in the industry for 3-4 years. I have not done a lot of work. During the lockdown, certain things happened that I want to share. In August 2020, I got a call from Umesh Kamat Ji who offered me a web series owned and produced by Raj Kundra. I asked him about Raj Kundra and he told me he is Shilpa Shetty’s husband,” said in a statement given in February.
Adding further, “He told me if I joined (the web series), I would continue to get work and I would reach great heights. So I agreed and then he told me to audition. I told him it’s COVID so how will I give the audition. So he said you can do it via video call. When I joined the video call, he demanded that I give a nude audition. I was shocked and I refused. The video call had three people- one of whom had their face covered and one of them was Raj Kundra I think. I want that if he is involved in such things, he is arrested and such a racket is exposed,” the actress concluded.
Raj Kundra was arrested under the sections IPC 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292, and 293 (obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) and an additional section of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
