Raj Kundra had sought anticipatory bail there at Bombay High Court previously this week. The businessman’s anticipatory bail motion was denied by the Bombay High Court on Thursday. The application was submitted in response to an FIR lodged against him during connection with just an accused pornography case. This is also awaiting a precise order.

Kundra reportedly sought anticipatory bail there at the court of session, but it has been denied. He then applied to the HC, claiming that he was being falsely accused. In the FIR, Sherlyn Chopra, as well as Poonam Pandey, are identified as co-accused.
On July 19, Kundra was detained by that the Mumbai crime department for reportedly making and distributing pornographic videos using a subscriber-based mobile app called “HotShots.” Besides from areas of everything Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act, Kundra was charged under sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common purpose), 292 as well as 293 (relating to obscene and indecent ads and exhibitions) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). In September, following Mumbai police filing a list of charges against him, he was also granted bail.
The petition further stated that celebrities who make the tough decision to display their talent on the platform are not being forced to do so. Between the celebrity and the corporation, a suitable agreement was also written up. Raj Kundra revealed that he was unaware of the content produced for the company’s OTT platform by celebrities Poonam Pandey and Sherlyn Chopra.
