Actor Navdeep, who is one among the 12 celebrities from Tollywood to have been served notice in connection with the drugs case, will appear before the investigation officials today in Hyderabad. Speculations are high that the officials may collect blood and nail samples of actor Navdeep after the session. Navdeep had posted a message on his social networking page earlier, after rumours started doing rounds that the actor is involved in sully and consumption of drugs in Tollywood.
The actor very clearly stated that he is no way related to the supply of drugs and his name might have come up in this case he had dealt with few event managers in the past who have had a bad reputation. Navdeep was, in the past, involved in few cases because of which his name has frequently appeared in many cases including drunken driving cases.
Other celebrities who were also served notices in connection with the drugs case are director Puri Jagannadh, Ravi Teja, Charmme Kaur, Subbaraju and Tarun Kumar among others. Puri Jagannadh and Subbaraju have already appeared before the investigating officials of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) and answered all their questions in connection with the drugs case.
Earlier, Puri Jagannadh lashed out at media outlets and said that his career and life has been ruined by them after they sensationalised the drugs case. After the grilling session, Puri Jagannadh posted a video on his social networking page speaking for the first time after his name appeared in the list of the Tollywood drugs case. “As summoned by the officials, I appeared before the SIT today and answered all their questions. I told them I do not know who Calvin is, I haven’t ever met him and do not have relations with him. If called by the officials again, I will go and appear before them,” said Puri Jagannadh in the video.
