With each passing day, many revelations are being made in the Raj Kundra pornography creation and distribution case.  In the latest update, actress Gehana Vasisth who has come in support of Raj Kundra after his arrest revealed that the latter was planning to cast his sister-in-law and actress Shamita Shetty for a movie. Today Court Extends Raj Kundra's Police Remand Till July 27.

According to reports, Gehana Vasisth claimed that Raj Kundra was planning to launch a new app and planning to cast Shamita for one of the projects which would have been released on the new app. She also said that she was in charge of direction.

In an interview to Navbharat Times, Gehana Vasisth said, "Just a few days before his (Kundra’s) arrest, I went to his office. There, I got to know that he is planning to launch an app called Bollyfame. He was planning to do chat shows, reality shows, music videos and feature films for the app. There was no plan to involve 'bold scenes' in these films." 

She added, "We also discussed the scripts. Then we thought about casting Shamita Shetty for one script, Sai Tamhankar and two other artists for another. I was supposed to direct these films."

However, she said that she has never met Shamita Shetty in person as her job was only to direct the film.

Earlier, Gehana had also hit out at actress Poonam Pandey and said she should not take the advantage of the situation when Raj is stuck.

"In 2011, Poonam said that she will go nude in the field if India wins. And, she is making nude videos for so many years. How can these people say that Raj has put them in the adult industry? They used to make such videos even before Raj launched his company," said Gehana to a leading daily.
