Raj Kundra, the husband of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, has been placed in judicial custody for 14 days in connection with his suspected involvement in the creation and distribution of pornographic video through applications such as HotShots.

Kundra had planned to pull in various Bollywood actresses, including Celina Jaitly, Kim Sharma, Neha Dhupia, Arshi Khan, Nora Fatehi, Gizele Thakral, and Scarlet Rose, among others, by the creative team of HotShots app, according to a video published recently by a model-turned-actress.

According to sources, Celina Jaitly's spokesman, has denied the accusations, claiming that while Celina was invited to star in an app, it was Shilpa Shetty's influencer app, not Raj Kundra's HotShots.

Celina was asked for Shilpa's JL Stream, a great influencers' app for professionals, according to the spokesman. Shilpa is a good friend of Celina's and they have a warm and pleasant relationship, therefore she was invited to join.
