Popular YouTuber Puneet Kaur took to social media to lash out at businessman and actress Shilpa Shetty's husband Raj Kundra claiming that he had once sent her a direct message (DM) for a mobile application named "Hotshots". Earlier this week, Raj Kundra, who has been remanded to judicial custody, was arrested by the Mumbai Police Crime Branch for the alleged creation and streaming of pornographic videos through the "Hotshots" app. Puneet Kaur took to her Instagram Stories to post screen grabs from various news reports of Raj Kundra's arrest and wrote, "Brooo do you OGS remember our verified DM video where he reached out to me for hotshots!?!? Im deaaad." She added, "I can’t even WTF this mans was really luring people -we literally thought it was spam when he sent that DM to me!? Jesus Christ man rot in jail."

Puneet Kaur further went on to share excerpts of the video in debate, in which she along with two others are seen discussing the DMs and pondering over whether Raj Kundra's social media account had been hacked. "This man has had a midlife crisis, probably, messing with girls to go to Hotshot.com to do something strange, I don't know", one person can be heard saying in the video, after which the three look for further details about the website on Google. The second man then states, "I think his account got hacked", followed by the first man making a note of it and saying, "That would be giving him the benefit of the doubt."

Addressing media persons, the Mumbai police commissioner said, "There was a case registered with the Crime Branch Mumbai in February 2021 about creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some apps. We’ve arrested Mr Raj Kundra in this case on 19/7/21 as he appears to be the key conspirator of this. We have sufficient evidence regarding this." Raj Kundra has been booked under sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292 and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) besides relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
