A day after Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra was arrested for his alleged role in a case involving production and distribution of pornographic films, an old tweet of his has resurfaced on the internet. In the tweet, the businessman had questioned why pornography was legal and prostitution wasn’t.

“Ok so here go’s Porn Vs Prostitution. Why is it legal to pay someone for sex on camera? How is one different to the other?? (sic),” Raj Kundra had tweeted in March 2012. The tweet re-emerged after his arrest late last evening.

Twitter users commented on the tweet calling it ‘ironic’, referring to his arrest by Mumbai police, and asked whether he had received his answer now. Many users commented saying that he must have learned the difference.

 

As of now, nine arrests have been made so far in the case. Kundra’s close friend, Ryan Thorpe was arrested as well and produced before the court with him on Tuesday.  The case was registered in February after a woman filed a case about being forced to do an adult film after being promised an acting gig, PTI quoted a police officer as saying. Kundra’s name came up during the interrogation.
