Gehana Vasisth, who is out on bail in the same pornography-related case as that of Raj Kundra who is accused of being the ‘key conspirator’, has said that Raj is innocent. Gehana spoke up about her arrest in February and claimed that the police officials pressured her to name Raj Kundra during the questioning. She also claimed that Sherlyn Chopra and Poonam Pandey are ‘lying’ about Raj.
Gehana said in an interview that she was arrested and taken to court without evidence linking her to pornographic films. She told that she was unaware of the allegations against her since the remand application and she did not understood other documents as they were in Marathi.
Gehana said to a leading daily, “They kept saying, ‘Aap Raj Kundra ka naam lo, aapko chhod denge (If you name Raj Kundra, we will let you go).’ I refused to do that”. She alleged that the police pressured other people to make false allegations on her and she ‘spent five months in jail for an offence that (she) didn’t commit’.
Speaking that the case against her and Raj ‘has no basis’, Gehana said “Raj has a business running from outside India. Hotshots was his app. Armsprime was his company that had created apps for Sherlyn Chopra, Poonam Pandey, me, and others. All the girls who are alleging that they were pushed into it, particularly Sherlyn and Poonam, are lying. Poonam has been doing nude videos for years. Her husband and she have worked on so many videos. Poonam’s own app today has nothing to do with Armsprime. Whatever they create has nothing to do with Raj. They all feared being embroiled in the matter and so, they named Raj”.
Poonam and Raj are in a legal battle. Armsprime Media, his company, was handling her app under a contract. She claims that the company illegally continues to use contents, featuring her, after the contract got terminated and even leaked her personal number online. While, Sherlyn Chopra gave her statement in the case on March.
Raj Kundra’s wife, actress Shilpa Shetty, on Friday, also recorded her statement in the case.
