Gehana Vasisth alias Vandana Tiwari has been charged with gangrape and wrongful confinement after being arrested on allegations of shooting and uploading pornographic videos on her website.

The police booked Gehana, along with three men, for rape, “outraging the modesty of women” and obscene act under Indian Penal Code (IPC). The fresh case has been applied after a 24-year-old model alleged that she was forced to engage in sexual acts with three men during a video shoot. Gehana’s lawyers have challenged the allegations, saying that the actress only shot erotic videos.

The actress has shot 87 pornography videos, which she uploaded on her website. These available for viewers at a subscription fee of Rs 2,000. But as the pornographic industry has seen for long, several clone websites sprung up in no time to show the same videos for free.

Police arrested several others allegedly involved in the act after the property cell of the Crime Branch raided a bungalow in Madh Island on 11 February as per the same report.

The names of the arrested are Yasmin Beg Khan alias Rowa (director and producer), Pratibha Nalawade (graphic designer), Monu Gopaldas Joshi (actor), Bhanusuryam Thakur (assistant) and Mohammed Asif aka Saify (cameraperson).

Apart from this, the police seized three bank accounts with a total balance of Rs 36 lakh. The cops recovered six mobile phones, a camera and related equipment, a laptop, memory cards and 5.68 lakh cash from the possession of members of the racket.

Soon after that, her representative Flynn Remedios, the head of Gehana Vasisth’s legal and press team, falsified all claims and said that she was innocent. 

In 2019, Gehana had made headlines after she suffered from a near-fatal cardiac arrest. She was rushed to the hospital after being unconscious on the sets of her web-series in Mumbai’s Madh Island. The doctors had suspected that this might have happened due to an adverse reaction between prescription drugs and certain energy drinks consumed by her.

Miss Asia Bikini winner Gehana is known for featuring in the Alt Balaji web-series Gandii Baat. She has featured also in a few Hindi and Telugu films and commercials.
