The 2017 drugs case that was busted in Tollywood
has returned to haunt the Telugu
film industry yet again. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday, summoned filmmaker Puri Jagannadh
for questioning in relation to this case. Puri arrived at the ED office in Hyderabad at 10 am and was accompanied by his son, actor Akash Puri. The interrogation is expected to last for a few hours. According to ED sources, money transactions have been found between some of the Tollywood celebrities and drug traffickers. Interestingly, Puri was also summoned in 2017 in relation to the same case. The director had earlier denied any involvement in the case and vowed that he will get a clean chit.
Over the next few weeks, several other Tollywood celebrities, including Rana Daggubati
, Rakul Preet
