MUMBAI: YouTuber Puneet Kaur spoke up against businessman Raj Kundra who has been arrested by Mumbai police for allegedly making porn. 

Kaur said that Kundra once sent her a direct message in connection with the supposed pornography.

Taking to Instagram stories, she said that Kundra reached out to her for hotshots. She thought at the time that it was a spam message. 

She also added excerpts of the video in question, in which she and two others could be seen discussing the DMs. 

They spoke about how he must be having a midlife crisis and wondering if his account has been hacked. 

"Probably messing with girls to go to to do something strange, I don't know," a man is heard saying in the video.
