Actor Shilpa Shetty has said she was not aware of the nature of content on 'Hotshots' - the mobile app via which her husband, Raj Kundra, is accused of streaming pornographic material - ANI quoted Mumbai police sources as saying. Raj Kundra has been sent to judicial custody till 27 July.

Police sources also told ANI that Shilpa said it was London-based Pradeep Bakshi, Raj Kundra's brother-in-law, who was involved with the app. Shilpa reportedly said that 'erotica' and 'pornography' are two different things and Raj Kundra wasn't involved in producing porn.

As per reports, after the case came to fore, Shilpa Shetty resigned from her husband's Viaan Industries, and stepped away from her active entertainment projects involvement, which included a television reality show and her current film.

The actor was questioned on Friday regarding the case. Raj was produced before the court on the same day, wherein the police had sought extension of his custody.

"Police suspect that the money earned from pornography was used for online betting. This is why transactions between Raj Kundra's Yes Bank account and United Bank of Africa account need to be investigated", Mumbai Police had told the court.

The police further told the court, "In WhatsApp chats we have found that Raj Kundra was talking about a deal about selling 121 videos for USD 1.2 million. This deal seems to be on the international level".

Following the hearing, cops also conducted a search at Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra's Juhu house.
