Liger has been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Puri Jagannadh, Charmme, and Vijay Deverakonda are now under the ED’s radar over illegal foreign investments in the project.
The latest report from a trusted media portal stated that the Enforcement Directorate is looking into 160 bank accounts which were reportedly used to pool in the funds for the film.
Around Rs 30-40 crores were received by Puri Connects for the production of Liger. It is suspected that a Telangana politician funded the same through benamis.
The ED investigation is now used to identify those involved with the alleged illegal investments in Liger and the search is on for the Telangana based politician who is involved with all of it.
It is reported that the film costed the makers a whopping Rs 125 crore and going by the report, a sizeable chunk of the production costs were pooled in through illegal operations.
The ED had questioned Vijay Deverakonda regarding the same recently, and he said he hasn’t done anything wrong and all the attention is due to the popularity he attained.
