Gehana Vasisth said that the porn case against her and Raj Kundra ‘has no basis’. She also claimed that police asked her to name Raj Kundra in the case.
Gehana Vasisth, who is out on bail in the same porn case that actor Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra is accused of being the ‘key conspirator’ of, claimed that he is innocent. She opened up about her arrest in February and alleged that the police pressured her into naming Raj during questioning. She also said that Sherlyn Chopra and Poonam Pandey are ‘lying’ about him.
Now, Gehana, in an interview, has stated that she spent five months in jail for a crime she didn’t commit. The actress stated that the whole matter started when some people were arrested for shooting a porn film in Madh Island. Gehana stated that even during the raid, police didn’t find anything at her residence and a charge sheet was filed in Marathi and as she doesn’t understand the language, she was not able to understand the charges that were leveled upon her. Gehana also made a shocking claim and said that the police, during the investigation, wanted her to take Raj Kundra’s name.

“Each time that I sat before the officers, all they wanted to know was… Meri life mein kya chal raha hai. Nothing of worth about the case was asked. They kept saying, ‘Aap Raj Kundra ka naam lo, aapko chhod denge.’ I refused to do that. They brought Raj’s employee Umesh Kamath and a guy called Tanveer. With them in custody, they again tried to pressurise me to name Raj, and I refused. I was sent to Byculla jail,” Bombay Times quoted Gehana as saying.
Not once, but many times the Gandi Baat actress was asked to take Raj’s name as revealed by the actress. “When I went back to the jail to collect my belongings, they again asked me if I wanted to name Raj. I refused,” she said further. Also Read- Shilpa Shetty Claims Raj Kundra is Innocent; Says ‘Content On Hotshot App ‘Not Pornography But Erotica’
