When the girls agree to come with them to Mumbai they take them to the rented bungalow and force them to expose themselves on shooting day. if they deny this work they tortures them and says them if they will not do the expense of the shooting would be payable by them which is very costly, then girls forcefully have to do this because they got no options left instead of this, as said by police

-Reason behind raj Kundra’s arrest in this racket
Two victims got arrested by Mumbai police. One was indulged in the production of these adult films and another was in broadcasting media who finals the OTT platforms on which these films would be uploaded.
There were many ‘HOPTAPPS’ on which these films were uploaded. All these apps got popular in the lockdown period with lakhs of subscribers and membership partners after knowing that pornography films were banned and illegal in India. After the investigation and interrogating both the suspects the Mumbai police get to know that these adults films were posted in foreign countries too. The UK production house wh uploads these films, police investigated the executive Umesh Kamat who was also the ex-assistant of raj Kundra claimed that Raj Kundra has the connection with these adult films supplies and the company keirin Pvt Ltd also reported the name of Raj Kundra in this racket. Like kenrin, the Mumbai-based company via an industry owned by Raj Kundra was highly involved in running these ‘HOTAPPS’.
The Raj Kundra name claim by probe Kamat has given a new angle in this racket. His name had cropped up earlier, said by police, but there was nothing serious against him. The keirin posts these porn clips to sidestep the anti-pornography laws of India. The clips were transferred by the WeTransfer app to the UK and then released on paid mobile apps.
For evidence and confirmation of the involvement of raj Kundra and this Mumbai police searched Raj Kundra’s office where they found agreements, papers, WhatsApp chats and pornographic clips which establishes that raj Kundra was completely involved in this adult film racket said by the joint commissioner of Mumbai police to reporters. Raj Kundra was arrested based on these pieces of evidence.

And after that, she had received 1000+ calls for this and also threatening calls. She had also filed a case against him but nothing happened.
Gehna Vasisht who got arrested wrongly claimed that there was nothing inappropriate in the films. People should know the difference between adult films and erotic films. She said she was happy working with them and used to get paid by them and she deserves this.
Mika Singh, said that there was nothing on those apps, he used one of the apps which are completely fine, and the rest he is waiting for what will happen next. He claimed that raj Kundra is a nice guy but he is waiting for the next decision.
