Scams and illegal dealings are no new to the Bollywood industry as it experienced several times before. Actors & technicians from various departments have allegedly involved in many scams and the latest in the list is 'Bitcoin Scam'.
According to the latest news, Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty's husband Raj Kundra was grilled by Enforcement Directorate team in connection with a 'BitCoin scam' of 2000 Crores on Sunday. Kundra, who's ventured into several businesses, was questioned 8 hours for the alleged links with Amit Bharadwaj, the main accused in the scam who was taken into custody two months ago. Sources of Bollywood also reveal that names of following high-profile actors have come up while questioning of Mr. Raj-Sunny Leone, Prachi Desai, Aarti Chabria, Sonal Chauhan, Karishma Tanna, Zareen Khan, Neha Dhupia, Huma Qureshi and Nargis Fakhri and Shilpa Shetty as well.
Reportedly, Raj Kundra was questioned on whether he performed any illegal bitcoin transactions with Amit & gained anything from it. A source at ED says that they both might have had some links in Hash Mining for BitCoin in China. Although officials did not disclose much information about the interrogation, it's a heating debate of social media whether rest of the actors would also be called up for the questionnaire.
However, while speaking of interrogation, Kundra claimed innocence and said 'ED called me as a witness. There is an Amit Bharadwaj who is involved in some scam. He had purchased poker team from our poker league but did not make any payment so we expelled his team. I have given my statement.'
Reacting to the news on her husband, Shilpa Shetty tweeted-'Gosh if I wasn't your wife @TheRajKundra and didn't know that you were called as a "WITNESS" in the #AmitBharadwaj case even I would worry. #ResponsibleReporting needed.'
