Photographs of printouts taken from a WhatsApp chat of a group named ‘H Accounts’ have gone viral on social media. Unconfirmed claims by netizens suggest that one of the participants of the group is actress Shilpa Shetty’s husband and businessman Raj Kundra, who was arrested late on Monday on charges of making pornographic content and publishing them through mobile applications.

Photographs of the printouts show how much revenue was earned and how transactions were made through production of pornographic films.

In the photographs of the WhatsApp group, a user named Raj Kundra writes: “Nice. Please start splitting live gross rev and movie rev.”

In another conversation, the same user writes: “Movie revenue has really dropped.”

The group has a total of five participants — namely Raj Kundra, Megha Viaan Accounts (Viaan, incidentally, is Raj and Shilpa’s son’s name), Pardeep Bakshi, Rob Digital Marketing Hotshots, and Roy Evans Content Head Hotshots.

Meanwhile, a day after the arrest of Kundra, Mumbai Police has nabbed a techie in connection with the alleged pornographic racket being probed by the Crime Branch-CID, official sources said here on Tuesday.

The police have arrested Ryan John Tharpe, entrusted with the technical aspects of Kundra-Shetty’s companies, for his alleged role and involvement in the scam.

The two were produced before a Mumbai magistrate and have been remanded to police custody till July 23.

 For the second consecutive day, the Income Tax Department continued its ‘survey’ operations at the home of Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, official sources said here on Thursday.

A team of IT sleuths swooped on the 48-year-old Sood’s Juhu home to carry out search operations to detect certain alleged financial irregularities.

The IT department is examining bank statements, books of accounts, documents and details of financial or other business transactions during the ‘survey’, for suspected tax evasion, though no details are being shared officially.

In Wednesday’s operations, the IT had searched around half-a-dozen premises linked to the actor, including offices and other properties in Mumbai and certain locations in Lucknow.

Sood shot into limelight last year (2020) for arranging free flights or luxury buses for stranded migrants during the lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic and sent them to different parts of India, besides organising liquid medical oxygen supplies to various hospitals during the second Covid wave this year (2021).

On Ayushmann Khurrana’s 37th birthday on Tuesday, his filmmaker-wife Tahira Kashyap revealed how the actor won her heart, when they both were just 19 years old.

Tahira on Tuesday shared a throwback picture on Instagram and penned a heart-warming note talking about how the actor wooed her.

“We were 19! I found you quite cool, with your frames, bike, matching sweaters and mufflers, but what got my heart was when you held the guitar and sang a song for me,” Tahira wrote.

She added: “You have always been passionate about art and what inspires me is after all these years your innocence and excitement towards work and life remains the same. You have been my biggest confidante and cheerleader.

“I might not be a big romantic as the goofiness (like you would say) gets the better of me, but I want to tell you that life is amazing with you and I continue learning a lot from you! Happy birthday umm P.S. – we were such lookers no.”

Ayushmann and Tahira were childhood sweethearts. The two got married in 2008. The couple welcomed their son Virajveer in 2012 and daughter Varushka in 2014.

Ayushmann’s upcoming roster includes ‘Anek’, ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ and ‘Doctor G’.
