TFI Pens Down Letter To KCR Over Drugs Scandal:- The Telugu Film Industry (TFI) seems to be perturbed by the ongoing probe into the drugs scandal in the city, in which some Tollywood personalities are allegedly involved.
The TFI has asked the Chief Minister to intervene in the matter and have written a letter to KCR, in which they have requested him to ensure that the investigation of the film personalities is “handled in a smooth way”.
The letter was jointly sent by Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce, Movie Artists Association, Telugu Film Producers’ Federation and Telangana State Film Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday. It said that it was an eclipse to the industry while it was celebrating happy moments after reaching Rs 2,000 crore of mark.
The letter reminded KCR that “during disasters, the industry carried the bowl and collected money for the benefit of victims. We are seeking sympathy from media and we appreciate the government for bringing the drug racket to light.”
It went on to say that “The industry has thousands of employees and workers, and impacts crores of people. We request you to handle the matter in cases of film personalities in a smooth way.” The letter said, “The industry requires its people to be physically fit and disciplined and the industry will itself take action again anyone found to be taking drugs.”
“There is no proof available that persons without discipline and drug addicts have grown in the industry. If we find such persons, we shall take disciplinary action against them, apart from supporting the police and agencies in investigation,” the letter said.
