It is known that Puri faced intense grilling by the SIT on Wednesday in connection with the drug scandal that hit Tollywood recently. The director has reportedly tried his best to keep his clam and claimed innocence, but he turned emotional and vociferously condemned when the officers pressured him to find out if Charmee also does drugs.
“Charmme is not the kind of woman who does drugs, she is a thorough professional and a decent, hardworking woman. She has struggled a lot to reach where she is today,” Puri reportedly told SIT officials. At one point, Puri said to have equated Charmme with Goddesses to convey that she was not into drugs.
As per reports, Puri looked angry and sounded very emotional when questioned whether he had supplied narcotics to Charmee.
Meanwhile, SIT officials have served a notice to Charmme also in connection with the drugs case and she would undergo interrogation very shortly.
