As per the reports from the media circles, the officials of the Enforcement Directorate has summoned director Puri Jagannadh and Charmee. Reportedly, they both are questioned on illegal investments in the film Liger via Foreign Exchange.
Looks like Liger is still haunting Puri Jagannadh and the producer Charmee. Reports say the ED officials got information that many political leaders from Telangana invested in Liger film and it is the prime reason behind investigating Puri Jagannadh and Charmee since this morning.
Released in August, Liger starrer Vijay Deverakonda in the lead role ended up as a disaster at the box office. Compared to southern states, the film did well in the North belt. A few weeks back, the buyers of Liger threatened Puri Jagannadh to sit on a hunger strike at his office at Jubilee Hills but Puri gave back to the Telugu distributors and exhibitors of Liger with strong comments. The twist in the tale is the lead hero Vijay Deverakonda is nowhere seen involved in the issue. As Enforcement Directorate is now targetting Puri and Charmee, will at least now, Vijay extent moral support to his director and producer, needs to be seen.
