Are heroes Ravi Teja, Tharun, Nandu, Tanish and Navadeep, ace director Puri Jagannath, heroine Charmme, item bomb Mumaith Khan involved in the drugs case that is causing tremors in Tollywood.
An unofficial list in the public domain has named these stars. The enforcement officials have reportedly served notices to these actors and have asked them to appear before the Special Investigation Team between July 19 and 27.
The other names that are doing rounds are character artiste Subbaraju, art director Chinna and camera man Shyam K Naidu.
However, an official confirmation is still awaited. Notices have reportedly been served to the film personalities on the basis of the call data of drub peddler Kelvin. Enforcement Director Akun Sabharwal, however, confired that notices have been served on 10 film personalities. They would be questioned and their possible role in drug usage as well as peddling will be probed, he added. He also said that the film personalities would not be questioned in the SIT office. They would be questioned in a neutral location.
With the drugs issue dogging Tollywood, the Movie Artists Association (MAA) only recently conducted a meeting on the issue and slammed those who were involved in the drug scandal. The meeting was presided by its president Sivaji Raja. Producers Suresh Babu, Allu Arvind and actor Srikanth criticised those involved in the drug scandal and said that due to the involvement of a handful of persons, the whole industry was now being blamed.
