Sheryln Chopra BREAKS SILENCE in Raj Kundra porn case, takes dig at Poonam Pandey for ‘heart goes out to Shilpa’ remark

Amid businessman and Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra’s arrest late Monday night on charges of alleged involvement in creating and publishing pornographic content through various mobile apps, actress-model Sherlyn Chopra has finally broken her silence on the matter. 

In a video, Sherlyn has come forward to reveal that she was the first person to give a neutral statement to the Maharashtra Cyber Cell, earlier this year. She also added that she was the one who had informed the cyber cell about Armsprime, the company linked to Raj Kundra in the porn case. 

In the video, Sherlyn also took a dig at Poonam Pandey, without directly naming her but quoting a part of her statement that the latter made in the media saying ‘her heart goes out to Shilpa Shetty and her kids’. Sherlyn said that unlike those who say that their heart goes out to Shilpa and her kids, she did not go underground or missing. 

In the video, Sherlyn is heard saying, “Since the last few days, several media persons and reporters have been trying to contact me for a statement in the Raj Kundra case. I would like to inform everyone that the first person to give her statement to the Maharashtra Cyber Cell investigating team was me. I was the one who first informed the cyber cell about Armsprime. What I mean to say is that, when I was sent summons notice, unlike others who say ‘my heart goes out to Shilpa Shetty’, I did not go underground or missing. I did not try to run away from the country. In March 2021, I went to the cyber cell’s office and gave an unbiased, neutral statement in the case. I have a lot to say in this matter, but since it is sub-judice, it will be inappropriate for me to comment on it. I request all of you, especially the media persons and reporters to contact the Maharashtra Cyber Cell and request them to share a few excerpts of my statement with them. Thank you. Jai Hind.”

On Wednesday, actress-model Poonam Pandey claimed Raj Kundra, upon a contractual disagreement in 2019, leaked her number along with a message that said “I will strip for you”. Poonam had also made a statement that following the disagreement, her number and some images were leaked. This resulted in her getting calls that were derogatory in nature.

In a video message to IANS, Poonam said: “When I said no to signing the contract, he leaked my phone number with a caption, ‘Call me now. I will strip for you`. He released this message along with my personal number and broadcast it. I still remember that after that my phone rang non-stop. I got calls from the whole world, including threatening messages.”

Poonam also said that she had to go into hiding.

“I was not home. I was living like a fugitive. I was scared that something would happen to me because of the kind of messages I used to get, such as ‘I know where you are’. It was scary,” Poonam said.

Opening up about the contract, the actress-model said: “The threat was that I had to sign his new contract. Whatever or whenever they said, I`d have to shoot that way or else they would leak my private information. When I said no, my number was leaked on the internet,” she said.

Poonam had earlier filed a case against Kundra and his associates at Armsprime Media, the company that was handling her app. She had complained that they were illegally using her videos even after their contract had ended.

A day after Raj Kundra was arrested, Poonam had told a leading daily in an interview that her heart goes out to Shilpa Shetty and her kids. She had also said that at such time, she would not like to highlight her own trauma. 

Meanwhile, Raj Kundra has been sent to police custody till July 23 after being arrested by Mumbai Police on charges of creating and publishing pornographic content.
