Some people might think I was held for making porn for their lifetimes: Actor Karan Kundrra on being mistaken for Raj Kundra

British businessman Raj Kundra’s pornography case is the most talked about celebrity case of the time. However the case has also put actor Karan Kundrra in a tricky situation as people are mistaking him for Raj Kundra, who has been arrested in an alleged connection with a pornography case.

Talking about finding his name and photograph in place of Raj’s the actor said “Not just my picture, some also used my name. When I woke up and opened my Twitter, I saw a lot of people had thought that it was actually me who was caught in the controversy, and were tweeting about it while tagging me. It took me a while to figure out what actually happened, and that it was Raj Kundra.”.

“‘Karan Kundrra arrested for making porn films’ — this is the headline he woke up to recently, and since then has been wondering about its implications,” Karan shares.

Actor even revealed that this is not the first time he has been mistaken for Raj Kundra as he has been called Shilpa Shetty’s husband before “Some thought that it was a mistake, some thought that the person in question is me. There were some who started abusing me. They started tagging me and replying on Twitter, with my fans correcting them. This has happened before as well when someone called me Shilpa Shetty’s husband, which was taken in a lighter manner,” he recalls.

However this time the situation is serious and not something that can be simply laughed about  “Initially, it was quite amusing, but later on I was quite ticked off by it. That was quite funny and frustrating at the same time,” he adds.

Even though the actor doesn’t blame anyone, he can’t stop thinking about the impact it can have on his career. “So many people have read it. I have a screenshot of that article with me. Now, if anyone reads that in a small town, and doesn’t read the updated news, they’d think it’s me for the rest of their lives,” rues the actor, who stumbled upon many posts like, ‘yeh Roadies karne wala banda porn bana raha hai’. I’m worried about the people who might not read the subsequent piece. That is detrimental to my image,” Karan said.

He is also worried that the mistake will continue to live on in the Google era. “For example, if I am trying to work with somebody in the US or Korea, who has no idea about our industry, and if they search my name. This would come up, with no subsequent article clarifying about the mistake and the change. It’s going to stay for a long time,” the actor concludes.
