When the city police recently busted a chain of drug rackets, the involvement of Tollywood celebs in drugs unearthed, and it became quite a big nuisance for about a month. Even before Tollywood could come out of that shock, names of Telugu film and TV actors have allegedly surfaced in the recently busted prostitution scandal in the city massage parlors and spas.
Hyderabad police have recently cracked down on spas and massage parlors which had been running brothel houses in commercial and residential areas under the guise of massage centres. Although girls from Thailand and Northeast states were found to have been involved in the flesh trade in the raided parlors, reports are slowly emerging that a few Telugu film and TV actresses are also involved in this ring.
Dasari Siddharth, 32, who was identified as the kingpin behind this prostitution racket, has reportedly divulged the names of two prominent Tollywood actresses and a few other character artistes, when he was pressed by police during the interrogation. As per his alleged revelations, actresses cater only to VIP customers. Police are said to be planning to serve notices to the two actresses for investigation purpose.
