“I have come to know today that through Viaan industries, a hotshot app was created and porn videos made through it were sold to Pardeep Bakshi to his firm Kenrin. I am busy with my own work and I don’t ask my husband what he does and he doesn’t tell me anything about his work. I don’t know anything about all this,” her statement read, as quoted in an India Today report.
