Tollywood Drugs Case: Many Names Shelved
Hyderabad: Drug menace focus shifted to Tollywood and it is creating tremors in the industry with names of celebrities who received notices being mentioned by news channels.
There were mixed reactions from the artists who received notices and from industry celebs. Actors Nandu, Navadeep, Subbaraju, Tanish condemned the news that they are drug addict. Reaction from Nandu( Singer Geetha Madhuri’s hubby) is totally different. It is surprising to see his name getting leaked though he did not receive any notice from Excise officials.
Clearly few names of the celebrities are withheld according to sources of Primepost.in. Son of a leading producer of Tollywood and sons of a leading actor, who are closely associated with a businessman in Hyderabad, are lucky enough not to find their names. It was on account of pressure brought to bear on Excise Enforcement Director Akun Sabharwal.
Son of a producer even had a pub in the city which was sold out to his friend recently. Meanwhile Daggubati Suresh condemned the rumours about Rana Daggubati and his younger brother. These names were speculated in an English daily (Deccan Chronicle) , but Suresh said no one in his family are drug addicts.
Tollywood celebrities are using drugs like LSD , Cocaine, MDMA and Kelvin is linked with few celebrities whose names are leaked today.
There was a pressure on Akun Sabharwal from Government to disclose the names of big wigs in the list. This might be the reason why Akun Sabharwal is going on leave for 10 days from Monday.
