Raj Kundra, who was caught in a pornography case last year and spent 64 days in jail, is now making his acting debut. Dainik Bhaskar has learned from sources close to him that Raj has completed the shooting of the film titled ‘UT No 69’ in Mumbai last month.
The shooting location was Dabba Factory located in Mira Road, a suburban area of Mumbai. The title of the film is related to the barracks of Arthur Road Jail, where Raj Kundra was lodged as a prisoner. The shooting of the film was completed in just 18 days. Now preparations are on to sell it on the OTT platform Prime Video.
A source said, “Raj Kundra has played himself in the film. What happened to him when he was in Arthur Road Jail, has been threaded into the story of the film. The film has been shot secretly. There are no stars in the secondary cast in the film. That is because there is not much discussion about the shooting of the film.
The entire cast and crew has also been the same, who have done only one or two big films. The name of the banner is The Bigger Picture. Direction is by Shahnawaz Ali. At the same time, the art direction has been done by Neeraj Kumar Singh. He has converted the Dabba factory into Arthur Road Jail.
Last year, Raj Kundra was accused of making porn films. In this case, Mumbai Police made 10 people including Raj Kundra accused. Chargesheet has also been filed against all. Before the arrest of Raj, in February 2021, 5 people were arrested in this case. These accused used to make porn films and cheat people by promising them work in films and web series.
New models and actors were promised roles in films and porn films were made with them. These films were shot in rented bungalows or apartments near Aksa in Mud Island and Malad. Raj was arrested on his behest.
During the shoot, the accused used to ask the actresses to shoot for a different script and they were also asked to shoot nude scenes. If an actress refused, she was allegedly threatened, then the cost of shooting was also demanded. It is alleged that these nude clips were uploaded on an app. These apps were subscription based. Subscribers had to pay a fixed amount to view the content.
