A few weeks back the officials of the Enforcement Directorate summoned directors Puri Jagannadh and Charmee. Reportedly, they both are questioned on illegal investments in the film Liger via Foreign Exchange. As per the media reports, the director-producer duo are grilled for more than three hours on the investments made in Liger and gathering valuable information.
Now, the latest we hear is that the Enforcement Directorate officials will be questioning Liger film hero Vijay Deverakonda. Reports suggest that Vijay Deverakonda will be appearing before the ED office this afternoon. The officials will be questioning Vijay regarding his remuneration for Liger.
Looks like Liger not only haunts Puri Jagannadh and the producer Charmee, even the hero Vijay Deverakonda. Earlier reports came out that the ED officials got information that many political leaders from Telangana invested in Liger film and it is the prime reason behind investigating the movie unit.
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 as involved in the issue. As Enforcement Directorate is now targeting Puri, Charmee and Vijay Deverakonda, we have to see how things turn out in the coming days.
