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.
With regards to this incident, today, Kajal Aggarwal has issued a statement regarding the arrest of Ronnie. She took to Twitter to clarify that she was unaware of all this and has nothing to do about their whereabouts and activities once their professional duties with regards to her are completed.
Her tweet reads, “I am absolutely shocked and appalled about this whole incident with Ronnie. I’m in zero support of this and any behavior that is detrimental to the hygiene of our society. Having said that, just because I care for people who run errands for me does not imply that I can control their personal lives/choices. My parents have always managed my career and with everyone else from my industry, I share an extremely professional/cordial relationship. I’m unaware of their whereabouts and activities once their professional duties with regards to me are completed.”
