Vijay Deverakonda Reacts To ED Questioning Him Over 'Liger' funding 

Vijay Deverakonda appeared before the Enforcement Directorate in Hyderabad, yesterday (November 30).  The Arjun Reddy actor was reportedly grilled for over 12 hours, in connection with the money laundering case against his Bollywood debut film Liger.  

Now the actor has opened up on the ongoing controversy. Speaking with the media after 12-hours of stringent questioning, the Geetha Govindam actor said "By getting popularity, there will be few troubles and side effects there’s nothing you can do about it. 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," he was quoted in an NDTV report.

The actor was brought in for questioning at 8:30 am on Wednesday and was released after 8:30 pm. As per sources, Vijay was grilled about the sources of funding for his pan-Indian disaster 'Liger', his remuneration, and payments made to other actors including American boxing legend Mike Tyson who had an extended cameo in the film.

The ED officials grilled filmmaker Puri Jagannadh and actor-turned-producer Charmme Kaur on November 17 who jointly produced the film made on an estimated budget of Rs 90 crores. They were also questioned about the source of investment for the mega-budget movie which released in August this year. Despite the massive budget and star cast including Ramya Krishna and Ananya Panday ‘Liger’ miserably tanked at the box office.
