Bombay High Court Denies Pre-Arrest Bail to Raj Kundra, Sherlyn Chopra, Poonam Pandey and Others in Porn Videos Case

The Bombay High Court on Thursday (November 25, 2021) rejected an anticipatory bail application filed by businessperson Raj Kundra in connection with an FIR registered against him for allegedly distributing pornographic videos.


Justice Nitin Sambre had reserved the order on Wednesday (November 24, 2021) on Kundra's plea seeking protection from arrest.

On Thursday (November 25, 2021) bench rejected the petition. The detailed order is awaited.


The cyber cell of the Mumbai police has filed a case against Kundra under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code, Indecent Representation of Women (Prevention) Act, and Information Technology Act for allegedly distributing/ transmitting sexually explicit videos.

Fearing arrest, Kundra, who is married to actor Shilpa Shetty, first sought anticipatory bail from the sessions court but it was refused, so he moved the HC, claiming that he had been framed up.


The FIR named actors Sherlyn Chopra and Poonam Pandey as co-accused.

He was in no way connected to content creation, publication or transmission of alleged illegal videos even as the actors, who were named as co-accused, had given full consent to shoot the videos, his lawyers said.

In July this year, Kundra was arrested by Mumbai Police in another case where he was accused of distributing porn films through an app. He was granted bail in September.
