She was arrested by the Crime Branch of Mumbai Police and must appear in court on Monday, February 8, 2021.

According to a report by Times of India, the actress shot 87 adult movies.

She uploaded the videos on her website, making them available for viewers at a subscription fee of Rs. 2,000 (£20).

According to sources, Gehana had her own production house.

A senior police officer also confirmed her arrest.

Others were involved in this pornographic racket and were arrested by the authorities on Thursday, February 4, 2021, after raiding a bungalow in Madh Island, Mumbai.

During the raid, the authorities found a man and woman on the bed, who were being shot on a mobile phone camera.

Five people were arrested.

Following Vaisisth’s arrest, her publicist and legal affairs head Flynn Remedios issued a statement by saying that Vasisth should not be kept in custody due to her “fragile health”.

According to Remedios, Vasisth “suffered 4 cardiac arrests in the last one year” and is also asthmatic.

In a statement, Remedios said:

“Gehana Vasisth has suffered 4 cardiac arrests in the last one year. She is also asthmatic and her health is very fragile.

“Mumbai police should treat her on humanitarian grounds. She is not a criminal and had only shot erotica.

“There is no pornography in her work.

“The State should not interfere in the creative and artistic expression of an actor or director.

“She is not at all involved in the alleged porn racket run by others.

“In November 2019, she was on ventilator for a week and had closely escaped from the jaws of death.

“Her sugar levels are above 500 and the day she was arrested, her sugar was 600.

“She needs to be hospitalised immediately, said her personal doctor and diabetes and cardiac expert Dr Pranav Kabra who had treated her for diabetic ketoacidosis in November 2019.

“Diabetic ketoacidosis is a fatal condition and kills 98 per cent of patients who suffer from it.

“Gehana Vasisth aka Vandana Tiwari is totally innocent. She is not involved in any porn film racket.”

“As the producer and director of her company GV Studios, she has only produced and directed films that are permissible in law and at most can be classified or categorised as erotica.

“She is being falsely implicated and trapped or made a victim by vested interests and business competitors who are out to defame her.

“We have full faith in the judiciary and the Indian legal system.

“Unfortunately, Mumbai Police, which is otherwise the best police force in the world, has mixed up and clubbed together Gehana’s erotica filmmaking work with hard porn and hard porn makers in India.

“There is a legal difference between erotica or sensual or bold films and hardcore porn, but unfortunately, we are really saddened by the fact that the cops have clubbed both together.

“We hope the courts will identify the difference and give Gehana justice in the coming days.”

Gehana Vasisth is well-known for her role in the ALT Balaji web series Gandii Baat, and for taking part in Hindi and Telugu movies and commercials.

In 2012, she won Miss Asia Bikini contest.

Manisha is a South Asian Studies graduate with a passion for writing and foreign languages. She loves reading about South Asian history and speaks five languages. Her motto is: "If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door."
