Shilpa Shetty's husband, Raj Kundra has been arrested in a pornography case. In a shocking turn of events, Kundra was arrested late Monday night by the Mumbai Police. The businessman has been alleged to be involved in the creation and selling of pornography through various apps. Mumbai Police has called him one of the "key conspirators".
