Indian porn star Kajal, who became the subject of an international investigation after the revelation of her videos of consensual sex with men, has said she is not worried about her online reputation, which has helped her to “live a life of privilege”.
The 22-year-old from Pune, who has worked as a model and is an actor in films including I Love Indian Films, said that her fame and notoriety is “not something that is worth worrying about”.
In a YouTube video posted on Tuesday, Kajala said that despite her fame, she has “never regretted that I am so popular”.
She said that, even if her videos “give me the opportunity to be viewed by thousands and millions”, they are not her own.
Kajal’s comments come days after India’s Supreme Court upheld a petition seeking a ban on all pornography and adult video clips.
A similar case is before the Supreme Court in Delhi, where a similar petition has been filed by a woman, Anuj Bhatt.
The petition says that Indian laws on obscenity and pornography are inadequate and fail to protect children.
The Supreme Court on Monday said that the Supreme court should consider whether to issue a permanent injunction against the videos and if so, whether it should issue an order barring them from being broadcast.
The case is the latest in a long line of cases in which women in India have faced discrimination, rape, torture and murder.
In February, a video surfaced online that showed a naked woman being sexually assaulted and killed by her family member.
Kaur, who lives in the city of Delhi, has denied the allegations and claimed that she was harassed for years by her parents.
Her videos of her consensual sex scenes with men were shared widely on social media.
The video of the man’s death went viral and triggered outrage among Indian men and women.
It prompted the National Crime Records Bureau to launch an investigation.
