The Tollywood drug scandal gets bigger with every passing day. Over the past couple of days big names from the industry such as director Puri Jangannadh and actor Navdeep have been grilled by the SIT team. In a new twist, Ronny, the manager of actress Kajal Aggarwal was arrested on Monday by Hyderabad police.
The police raided the residence of Ronny on Monday after suspecting close links with drug peddlers in the city.
Joseph, also known as Johnny Joseph or Rony, has been Kajal’s manager since her entry into films. His arrest comes on the day actor Navdeep was questioned by the SIT officials. It’s unclear whether he was arrested based on the information provided by the actor.
Ronny’s arrest is a big development that could cast a cloud on other big names in the industry. Besides Kajal, he has worked as a manager for Lavanya Tripati, Raashi Khanna and Megha Akash.
Tollywood Director Puri Jagannadh, cinematographer Shyam K Naidu, actors Tarun, Navadeep, P Subbaraju have been severely questioned by the SIT officials in the past few days. Big names like Ravi Teja, Charmee Kaur, Mumaith Khan, Ananda Krishna Nandu, art director Chinna N Dharmarao have also been involved in this bust.
The officials are also collecting the samples of hair, blood and nail for the purpose of forensic examination from these celebrities.
