Some time ago sensational director Puri Jagannadh and his production partner Charmme Kaur have been served notices by the Central agency Enforcement Directorate and the duo appeared before the officials for the investigation. Puri and Charmme did not reveal much about what happened but they were questioned about the funds that they pooled for Liger. There are talks that they received funds from abroad and they are kept under scanner. After them, the film's lead actor Vijay Deverakonda has been asked to appear before the agency for investigation. Vijay Deverakonda was present before the officials of ED in Hyderabad today.
The officials of the Enforcement Directorate are investigating in the angle of the violation of the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA). Vijay Deverakonda was questioned after the production house received funds as per the instruction from Vijay Deverakonda. There are strong talks that some of the politicians from the ruling TRS invested in the film. These funds are used to make payments for American boxer Mike Tyson and other international stars. Vijay Deverakonda has been questioned for over eight hours in the case. Liger ended up as a massive debacle and the film landed into several controversies. Vijay Deverakonda is on a break and he has plans to resume the shoot of Kushi directed by Shiva Nirvana. Samantha is suffering from Myositis and she is expected to return back to the sets soon.
