Raj Kundra, Shilpa Shetty’s husband and entrepreneur, will debut in his new film UT69 on November 3. On Wednesday, the trailer for UT69 was released. The film, in which Raj plays the lead, is based on his life. The teaser depicts Raj’s time in Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail following his arrest for alleged involvement in a pornographic content case. In fact, the trailer begins with ‘breaking news’ of Raj’s arrest in 2021.

Raj struggles to adjust to frequent criticism by other inmates and police workers inside the jail populate the caravan, despite being known as Shilpa Shetty’s husband or a ‘Bigg Boss participant’. Raj, who makes his acting debut in the film, is also caught in a stampede at one point. The trailer also depicts Raj’s unexpected friendships inside the prison.

Raj was arrested in July 2021 for allegedly making pornographic videos and released on bail in September of the same year. He was charged under the Indian Penal Code, the Indecent Representation of Women (Prevention) Act, and the Information Technology Act.

“UT69 takes a satirical look into the real-life incidents of businessman Raj Kundra’s days spent in Arthur Road jail,” the directors wrote alongside the teaser on YouTube. This was his most trying time, he says. Based on a true story, the film recounts this period in his life.”

About the film 

Raj announced the release date of his film UT69 earlier this month with a funny video featuring filmmaker Farah Khan and stand-up comedian Munawar Faruqui. Raj previously stated that the film is based on a factual story. Farah Khan was also rumoured to be directing it.

All suspicions were dispelled at the trailer premiere ceremony in Mumbai on Wednesday, when it was revealed that the project was directed by ad film filmmaker Shahnawaz Ali. AA Films is financing the picture, which is produced by SVS Studios and co-produced by THE BIGGER PICTURE FILMS.

“This is more than a movie to me!” While it’s a sort of conclusion, you’ll see through my eyes a story about survival, friendships, and relationships inside India’s most notoriously crowded infamous detention institution, also known as Arthur Road Jail,” Raj Kundra stated of his debut film.
