Varun Tej, the hero of Puri’s film Loafer stated: “I’m shocked to hear allegations against a person like Puri, who is not only concerned about his (own) health, but also of others.”
Varun, who is busy promoting his movie Fida, extended his support to the director. Saying only few film celebrities received notices, he felt the current issue cannot be named as “a drugs scandal”. The actor maintained he never saw Puri taking drugs during the shooting of Loafer.
Each and every one of those who have worked with him is going to town professing that Puri Jagannadh is a good person and is not doing drugs. More: Shyam K Naidu Next Under SIT Interrogation
