Actor Vijay Deverakonda goes through 12 hour ED Questioning over funding for his Bollywood film ‘Liger’
Actor Vijay Deverakonda was on Wednesday questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the funding of his Bollywood film ‘Liger’.
The questioning was reportedly done in an alleged Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999 (FEMA) violation,
Liger was the Telugu actor's Hindi debut. It was made reportedly with a budget of some Rs 100 crore. The movie, which starred Ananya Pandey and American boxing legend Mike Tyson, did not do well and the consensus among critics gave it a flop status.
"By getting popularity, there will be few troubles and side effects. It is an experience, it's life. I did my duty when I was called, I came and answered the questions. They did not call me again," said Mr Deverakonda after the questioning which started at 8.30 am ended.
Mr Deverakonda debuted with the 2011 Telugu film 'Nuvvila' and shot to fame with the 2017 blockbuster 'Arjun Reddy'.
