Raj Kundra is mired in controversy for his alleged involvement in a case about production of pornographic content. He is currently in police custody while the Mumbai Crime Branch has recovered several videos, emails and chats allegedly connected to the case. According to a report on Bollywood Shaadis, Kundra’s net worth is estimated to be around $550million, which roughly translates to over Rs 4000 crore.
Raj Kundra also known as Ripu Sudan Kundra, was reportedly born and raised in London. He has a daughter named Deleena with his first wife Kavita. After ending his first marriage, Raj tied the knot with Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty. The duo got hitched on 22 November 2009 and welcomed a baby boy Viaan Raj Kundra, on 21 May 2012. In 2020, Shilpa and Raj welcomed a daughter via surrogacy in February and have lovingly named her Samisha Shetty Kundra.
The 45-year-old businessman is listed as a director in as many as nine companies. According to IANS, Raj Kundra is a director of Shilpa Yog Private Limited, Cinemation Media Works, Bastian Hospitality, Kundra Constructions, J.L. Stream, Aqua Energy Beverages, Viaan Industries, Whole and Them Some Private Limited and Clearcom Private Media.
After Raj Kundra’s arrest, his lawyer objected to the application of Section 67A of the Information Technology Act on sending obscene content in electronic form along with other sections with respect to pornography as these laws consider “actual intercourse” as porn and the rest everything is termed as vulgar content. He further stated that the cops are following what web shows are working these days – vulgar content. However, it is not classified as porn. He added that nothing in this remand shows that two persons indulged in an act of intercourse. Hence, it cannot be called porn.
