ED summons Rakul Preet Singh

The Enforcement Directorate (ED), on Friday, requested actor Rakul Preet Singh to join its investigation into a purported money laundering case involving a drug case in Tollywood (the Telugu film industry).

On December 19, the actor has been asked to appear before the ED.

The actor had previously testified before the federal investigation agency in September of last year after being summoned as part of the investigation in relation to a high-end narcotics ring that was busted in the city in 2017.

Earlier, the ED had summoned a number of other Tollywood celebrities in relation to the notorious scheme to provide expensive drugs like LSD (Lysergic acid diethylamide) and MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine) that Telangana’s Prohibition and Excise department had cracked.

Actor Charmee Kaur and Telugu filmmaker Puri Jagannadh had already been questioned by the ED, according to PTI.

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Telangana’s Prohibition and Excise department had earlier looked into the suspected drug connections with Tollywood and interrogated 11 people associated with the Telugu film industry, including directors and actors in addition to one of the actors’ drivers.

The SIT also asked a few of the Tollywood celebrities it questioned to appear before the ED later. Rakul Preet, however, was then questioned by the SIT.

Rakul Preet was questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) last year as part of the actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death-related Bollywood drug trafficking investigation.

Last year, Deepika Padukone’s name had also surfaced. The Enforcement Directorate has come to know that these drugs were taken with codes like ‘D’ and ‘N’. There are also reports that D stands for Deepika Padukone and N stands for Mahesh Babu’s wife Namrata. It seems like that these drugs are going to embroil these actors into controversy yet again.

For the unversed, the police had seized a large amount of drugs in Bangalore last year. All the links were also revealed with the arrest of a Nigerian peddler. In this order, the police interrogated Bangalore-based producer Shankar Gowda. It is known that many film stars and political leaders are also involved in this case. Once again, it seems that ED has an eye on everyone.

Taapsee Pannu has landed in a controversy after the Hing Rakshak Sangathan filed a complaint against her for allegedly hurting Hindu sentiments and spreading obscenity.

Pannu, at the Lakme Fashion Week, recently wore a gigantic Laxmi neckpiece along with a plunging neckline red gown which seemed to be a ‘revealing dress’ for a section of people. The actor shared the video of her walking the ramp on her Instagram handle and wrote what the princess gown and queen-like jewels looked like. She also mentioned that the neckpiece is from Reliance Jewels’ Akshaya Tritiya Collection inspired by the majestic Thanjavur.

Have a look at the video here:

Reports said the complaint has been registered by a convenor of Hind Rakshak Sangathan and the son of BJP MLA Malini Gaur, Eklavya Singh Gaur.

Taapsee Pannu trolled

Walking the ramp of Lakme Fashion Week on March 12, Pannu slayed in an embroidered gown encrusted with sequins. The gigantic golden necklace made her look more captivating as she wooed her fans with her walk. To complete her look, she flaunted her natural curls and opted for minimal makeup to balance the statement jewellery. The plunging neck left space for the neckpiece to fit.

However, Pannu’s look at the Lakme Fashion Week irked a section of people who started moral policing her on social media for allegedly hurting Hindu sentiments by insulting Hindu deities.

Eklavya Gaur filed a case against Munawar Faruqui

For those who don’t know, this is the same Eklavya Gaur who filed an FIR against the comedian Munawar Faruqui against his Indore show which landed him in jail for a month and was later granted interim bail. Faruqui was also slammed for insulting Hindu deities in his comedy shows.
