The Anti-Corruption Bureau had even forwarded the complaint to the Mumbai police chief’s office in April but the city officers have refused to comment on the same. Meanwhile, reportedly, Raj had a plan in place to launch another app after ‘Hotshots’ was blocked on the app store. Calling the app a ‘blessing’ a set of chats that went viral allegedly have Kundra saying, “…Plan B started max 2-3 weeks the new app will be live iOS and Android it’s a blessing.”
Poonam Pandey claimed that Kundra and his associates leaked her personal mobile number writing, ‘Call me now, I will strip for you’, when she decided to terminate her contract with them. Levying serious allegations against Kundra, she said, “I was threatened and forced to sign a contract which stated — I have to shoot, pose and look a certain way according to their will or else, they’d leak all of my personal stuff.”
On the other hand, Marathi actor Umesh Kamat got tangled in this case owing to mistaken identity. Taking to social media, the actor slammed media houses for defaming him and using his image for another Umesh Kamat accused in the ongoing Raj Kundra case. Threatening action, he also clarified, ” UMESH KAMAT” alleged to be involved in the Raj Kundra case is, not me. I request you all to take note of the same and not fall for the absolute false and negligent news coverage.”
‘The Family Man’ star Priyamani has found her marriage to Mustafa Raj contested in court. Mustafa’s first wife, Ayesha, has filed a criminal case against the couple, claiming that he has not separated from her legally till date and hence their marriage is illegal.
