Nobody points a gun at your head and makes you shoot pornography. So, please don’t blame anyone. If you sell sex, people will buy sex, if you sell talent, people will buy talent. You don’t do such roles nobody will offer you. Nobody is lifting you and asking you to shoot. It’s a free country, people do different kinds of work. There are so many people in the world, who are doing so many things but why is only Raj Kundra being blamed? Because he is a celebrity’s (Shilpa Shetty) husband, a business tycoon?” Rakhi went on to say that she feels really sad about the situation and won’t comment on who is innocent or who is the culprit.
