Shilpa Shetty Kundra resigned from her position as the director of husband Raj Kundra's company Viaan Industries after allegations that the company produced pornographic content. According to a source quoted by TOI, “The reason Shilpa has come under the scanner is because she resigned from the director’s position at Viaan Industries.” It has been reported that the actress was aware of the alleged racket and officials from Mumbai's crime branch raided the couple's residence yesterday to find whether she had been benefitting monetarily from this racket.

Mumbai Police on Friday recorded the statement of Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty, an official said. Shetty's statement was recorded at her house in suburban Juhu in the afternoon, he said. The crime branch of Mumbai Police also seized a laptop, the official added.

Rak Kundra was arrested on the 19th of July under sections420 (Cheating), 34 (Common Intention), 292, and 293 (related to Obscene and Indecent advertisements and displays) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), besides relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act. Earlier yesterday, a court extended Kundra's police custody till July 27. Many others like Poonam Panday and Sherlyn Chopra have also recorded their statement in the case.
