Actor Sherlyn Chopra was summoned by the property cell of the Mumbai Crime Branch on Friday. She was reportedly questioned by the officials for around eight hours in connection with the porn film production case in which businessman Raj Kundra was arrested.
Now, during a recent interview, Sherlyn has claimed that Raj Kundra had "misguided" her, saying that Shilpa Shetty liked her videos. She even informed that Kundra made her believe that semi-nude and porn is casual.
"Raj Kundra was my mentor. He had misguided me, saying whatever I was shooting was for glamour. He even told me that Shilpa Shetty likes my videos and photos. Raj Kundra made me believe that semi-nude and porn is casual, everyone does it and so should I," Sherlyn Chopra said in an interview to India Today TV.
Expressing her grief and the ordeal she faced, the actress mentioned that she thought Kundra would get her big breaks. Sherlyn also stated that she never thought the businessman and Shilpa Shetty’s husband would make her ‘do wrong things’.
She added, "I don't know where to start from. Never did I imagine that I would get involved in such a scandal and one day I will have to give my statement in front of the crime branch. When I met Raj Kundra for the first time, I thought my whole life would change. I thought I'd get big breaks. I never thought Shilpa Shetty's husband would make me do wrong things."
Sherlyn also emphasized, "I went into an agreement with Armsprime and started making videos. Starting from glamorous videos, it slowly went to bold films. Later, I had to do semi-nude and complete nude videos. I was always told that there is nothing wrong with this because everyone does it."
Reflecting upon the assurance and motivation Raj Kundra gave her, Sherlyn added, "Raj Kundra kept telling me that Shilpa Shetty liked my videos and photos. This gave me more motivation to work on such videos. When you are motivated by people like Shilpa Shetty, you don't understand what's right and wrong. When I was praised for making such videos, it gave me a push to do more."
Raj Kundra was arrested by the police on July 19 along with 11 other people on charges related to the alleged creation of pornographic films.
Currently, both Businessman and Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra and his associate Ryan Thorpe are in judicial custody in the pornography-related case.
