Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s husband, Raj Kundra is leading all the headlines as he was arrested by the Mumbai Police because of his alleged involvement in making pornographic movies and publishing them on some app. It looks like the problems are not going to end for him soon as his old tweet on ‘Porn vs Prostitution’ has gone viral.
For the unversed, on the night of July 19, 2021, after interrogation, Raj Kundra was arrested by the Mumbai Police along with 11 other people.

The police stated that they have enough proof against the 45-year-old businessman.
The problems seem to grow more for Raj Kundra as his old tweet from 2012 goes viral over social media. In the tweet, Raj had posted on March 29, 2012, he had questioned why is it legal to pay someone for sex on camera. In one of his tweets, he had written, “Ok so here go's Porn Vs Prostitution. Why is it legal to pay someone for sex on camera? How is one different to the other??”
In the wake of the matter, Raj’s other offensive tweets also started making it to the headlines and started going viral. In one of his tweets, Raj had written, “India: Actors are playing cricket, Cricketers are playing politics, Politicians are watching porn and Porn stars are becoming actors....!” In another one, he had taken a dig at Newton’s law!
