It seems like Raj Kundra has landed in trouble as Poonam Pandey has filed a case against Shilpa Shetty's husband in the Bombay High Court.
The model-actress claimed that she has filed a complaint against businessman Raj Kundra and his associates. She alleged that Kundra and his associates have been illegally using content featuring her.
Pandey said that the contract between the two parties was terminated.
On the other side, Kundra and his associates Saurabh Kushwah denied the claims of Pandey and said that they haven’t received any notice till now.
Earlier, Pandey had signed a deal with Kundra and his associates, called Armsprime Media. Kundra’s company was handling Poonam Pandey’s app i.e. The Poonam Pandey App. As per media reports, the model claimed that Kundra’s company has been using the content featuring her even after the contract has been expired by over eight months.
The actress stated that over six months she has been getting obscene calls.
"The company (Armsprime) was handling my app. I kept the contract small because I could see that there was some fraud happening. After a while, I terminated the contract. Now, I read in the news that these guys have terminated the contract. If they have terminated the contract, why have they been stealing my videos over the past eight months? I have been calling and messaging Raj, mailing him with the request to stop stealing my video. Now, I am getting threatening messages from Raj Kundra," Poonam claimed while speaking to IANS.
"I want to understand whether he is really broke that he wants to steal my videos. If he is really facing a financial crunch, I can lend him some money but don't steal my content," she added.
She also alleged that Kundra’s associates also released her personal contact number, writing ‘call me, I will strip for you’.
"Now, that the news has gone out, these people have sent me a settlement agreement. They have accepted that they have been stealing my content, and are putting an amount in the contract. I am not going to be quiet. I have been silent for a year," she said.
The Armsprime Media has also released an official statement which reads: “The allegations by Poonam Pandey are false and frivolous. We have not received any notice or even a copy of the Writ Petition filed. We are surprised at how can we even be made a party to such Petition. There has been a breach of contract on her part and we are exercising our rights as per the agreement. Since the matter is sub-judice in High Court, we don't wish to make any further statement. Just because Raj is an investor in Armsprime, she is trying to extort money by misusing criminal law.”
Meanwhile, Poonam is confident about her case and alleged that she has a very strong case and have all proofs against Kundra. She asserted that she will seek justice and will also win the case.
