Poonam Pandey has been hitting the headlines these days after she filed a criminal complaint against actress Shilpa Shetty’s husband, businessman Raj Kundra, and his associates.
Pandey has alleged that Kundra and his associates have been illegally using content featuring her even after a contract between the two parties was terminated.
Now, she is claiming that the company is still making use of her videos to earn profit even though the contract has terminated.

Poonam Pandey described everything to IANS and stated, “The company (Armsprime) was handling my app. I kept the contract small because I could see that there was some fraud happening. After a while, I terminated the contract. Now, I read in the news that these guys have terminated the contract. If they have terminated the contract, why have they been stealing my videos over the past eight months. I have been calling and messaging Raj, mailing him with the request to stop stealing my video. Now, I am getting threatening messages from Raj Kundra.”
She further went on to add, “I want to understand whether he is really broke that he wants to steal my videos. If he is really facing a financial crunch, I can lend him some money but don’t steal my content.”
“Now, that the news has gone out, these people have sent me a settlement agreement. They have accepted that they have been stealing my content, and are putting an amount in the contract. I am not going to be quiet. I have been silent for a year,” she said.
An official statement has been issued by Armsprime Media, signed by Kushwah, which states: “The allegations by Poonam Pandey are false and frivolous. We have not received any notice or even a copy of the Writ Petition filed. We are surprised at how can we even be made a party to such Petition. There has been a breach of contract on her part and we are exercising our rights as per the agreement. Since the matter is sub-judice in High Court, we don’t wish to make any further statement. Just because Raj is an investor in Armsprime, she is trying to extort money by misusing criminal law.”
On the other hand, Pandey is confident about her case. “The case is in High Court. I have a strong case. I have all the proofs. I am seeking justice. And I know I can win the case,” she said.
