Husband of actress and businesswoman Shilpa Shetty, Raj Kundra has been named as a “key conspirator” by the Crime Branch of Mumbai Police in a case related to the making pornographic content and publishing it through some apps. While the story around Kundra’s arrest develops, the police is investigating two different facets of the industry – the production of pornographic content and its publishing and broadcasting to audience through apps.

Shilpa Shetty's husband Raj Kundra was a key member in developing the app 'Hotshots', which is a "video-on-demand service that provides premium digital entertainment", and used to be owned by Kundra's company, later corroborated by the Mumbai Police in its briefing. This information is another significant development in the information surrounding the arrest of Raj Kundra in porn racket since the app in question was being used as a platform to allegedly distribute pornographic content. The businessman has been termed the "key conspirator" by the Mumbai Police in the case.

 Kundra formed a company with Manan Vora, allegedly in order to have explicit videos from 'Hotshots' sent to another website. He also created several WhatsApp groups, of which he was the admin, and personally monitored details about the actors in these videos. Sources also revealed that Kundra would often closely monitor the accounts group, where discussions about transactions relating to these platforms would take place. Some of these chats have been accessed by Republic Media Network.

 For further investigation, Mumbai Police also accessed Umesh Kamat's mails and mobile conversations and uncovered some more information. Emails sent to Raj Kundra about the Hotshots app were found, along with WhatsApp conversations on Umesh’s phone about the same. 

 Mumbai Police Commissioner Hemant Nagrale said, “Businessman Raj Kundra has been arrested by the Crime Branch in a case relating to the creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some apps. He appears to be the key conspirator. We have sufficient evidence regarding this. We have arrested Raj Kundra in this case on July 19, 2021, as he appears to be the key conspirator of this. We have sufficient evidence regarding this. The investigation is in progress, please.”
