The adult film racket case has been in the headlines for more than two weeks now. Since then, many twists and turns have unravelled. Last week, model and actress Gehana Vasisth was also investigated for her alleged involvement in the creation of porn films.
During the hearing on Tuesday, a Mumbai Session court did not grant interim relief to Gehana.
As per ANI, there will be no interim relief for the actress. The court has set a date for the next hearing on August 06.
“Pornography case: No interim relief for Gehana Vasisth by Mumbai Sessions court, next date of hearing 6th August,” tweeted ANI. She filed a pre-arrest bail plea last week over fears of being arrested.
Vasisth’s lawyer Sunil Kumar also explained the pre-arrest bail. In an interview, he said, “We have moved the court for a pre-arrest anticipatory bail as there was a chance that she would have been arrested by the police.”
The 45-year-old businessman was arrested on July 19 for his alleged connection in the creation and distribution of pornographic content.
On Monday, actress Shilpa Shetty finally released her first official statement post her husband’s arrest.
Shilpa wrote: ‘‘Yes! The past few days have been challenging, on every front. There have been a lot of rumours and accusations. “A lot of unwarranted aspersions on me were cast by the media and (not so) well-wishers as well. A lot of trolling/questions posed… not only to me but also to my family.
MY STAND… HAVE NOT COMMENTED YET
and will continue to refrain from doing so in this case as it is sub-judice, so please stop attributing false quotes on my behalf. Reiterating my philosophy of, as a celebrity “Never never explain’. All I will say is, as it’s an ongoing investigation, I have full faith in the Mumbai Police & the judiciary. As a family, we are taking recourse to all our available legal remedies”.
She further added, “But, till then I humbly request you – especially as a MOTHER – to respect our privacy for my children’s sake and request you to refrain from commenting on half-baked information without verifying the veracity of the same, I am a proud law-abiding Indian citizen and a hardworking professional for the last 29 years. People have put their faith in ME & I’ve never let anyone down. So, most importantly, I request you to respect my family’s and ‘my right’ to privacy in these times. We don’t deserve a media trial. Please let the law take its course. Satyameva Jayate. with positivity and gratitude.”
At the moment, the crime branch has not found any evidence that proves Shilpa’s involvement in the case. The actress was interrogated for hours, where she maintained her stance and said she didn’t know the nature of the content being published on HotShots and other apps.
