How Indian Porn Industry is Operated Using Apps Hosted Outside India

NEW DELHI: Raj Kundra, the husband of actress Shilpa Shilpa Shetty, was arrested. This revelation has exposed how Indian porn is being run through apps that are hosted outside India.

Raj Kundra was arrested for making pornographic movies months after a series he made against him. Actresses supported him.

Suman, a Mumbai-based actress, claimed that Kundra is the real brain behind this porn racket on February 13. “For last one year Hotshots App is referred to as Raj Kundra’s company by everyone in the industry. The money and paper trail may be difficult to find but it definitely exists,” Suman said.


She said she was approached by Umesh Kamat several times and an accused who claimed to have worked for Kundra and owned Hotshots, Kenrin, and other porn apps.

Kundra had invested Rs 10 lakh in Navi Mumbai-based IT company Armsprime. This firm developed mobile apps for adult actresses like Sherlyn Chopra and Poonam Pandey. Multiple media reports claim that Kundra also invested in Armsprime. These apps are used to distribute nude videos.

Umesh Kamat (a former broker or property agent) was the Hotshots leader, responsible for sourcing soft porn videos and other content creators.


HOW THE PORN INDUSTRY WORKS THROUGH APPS

Indian web series videos are flooding porn websites. Investigators claim that the gang produced these porn videos in Mumbai apartments and then uploaded them into OTT platforms outside India. This allowed them to circumvent local laws.

These platforms are illegal in India. Therefore, paid OTT platforms that stream erotica and softcore movies are registered in countries other than India. They only offer local-made movies.


Cyber Crimes investigators have previously discovered that these platforms have experienced massive growth in India ever since the lockdown of 2020.

Cyber experts believe that multiple websites contain erotic Indian content but are hosted in other countries to avoid being caught by the police. Popular x-rated websites are displaying topics like Desi Web Series and Desi Models.

Many struggling Indian models are now offering paid applications. They post naked videos and strip for money. They then go live on their app and engage in the sexual act. Each act is assigned a rate slab. Extra-rich people have exclusive access to nude video content.


Indian law enforcement agencies are keeping track of illegal activities and decoding the money trail.

Mumbai police found Raj Kundra, who had routed his money via London through the assistance of a relative and other associates.

Poonam Pandey and Sherlyn Chopra’s connection:


The internet has gone viral after Raj Kundra’s arrest. Details of Sherlyn Chopra, actress-model, and Poonam Panday’s statements to Maharasthra Cyber Cell about the case have been shared.

They were linked to soft porn before, and they stated that Raj Kundra introduced them both to the adult market.

Sherlyn was paid Rs. 30 lakh per project and had completed 15 to 20 Raj Kundra projects so far.


According to a Web News Observer report, Poonam Pandey worked at Raj Kundra’s Armsprime Media. This company handled various app types, and Poonam Pandey was one of their clients. Poonam Pandey had an app aimed at adults, and Raj Kundra managed her app’s work. Poonam Pandey claims Raj Kundra’s company still indiscriminately uses her footage and movies, although their contract ended 8 months ago.

Lawyers for many of the accused arrested in February by the Crime Branch’s Property Cell claimed that no crime had been committed since all models and participants were adults who signed written contracts and video agreements to take part in the shoots.

None of the “actors” involved in producing porn videos has complained, except for three to four models who are merely trying to get large amounts from stars like Kundra.


According to a senior official, Kundra was taken into custody by Mumbai police Monday for allegedly creating porn and publishing it through different apps.
