Vijay Deverakonda-starrer Liger has landed in another controversy. It is reported that a politician’s black money is invested in the film.
Liger has landed in another controversy
Puri Jagannadh’s movie Liger was released to high expectations but turned out to be a huge disappointment. The movie performed poorly and was coupled with negative reviews. Also, it struggled to even recover its budget. However, even while the news of the film’s debacle is fresh in our minds, Liger has landed in a controversy.
Congress leader Bakka Judson has complained to ED and CBI to act against Member of Legislative Council Kalvakuntla Kavitha for allegedly making illegal investments in movies. He said that she aimed to turn her illegal black money into white by investing in the Vijay Deverakonda movie Liger. The Congress leader alleges that Kavitha called Vijay Devarakonda, the movie’s producer Charmi Kaur, and others to her home so they could discuss making a Pan-Indian movie.
“Liger was made to convert black money to white money. TRS’s Kavitha is involved with it. Before Liger started the shoot, she called many bigwigs and asked them to invest in the project. This is a clear attempt to convert black money to white. She is also trying to project Vijay Deverakonda as a pan India star,” Judson said in a statement.
Congress leader’s biggest accusation
Bakka Judson further reveals this plan was generated way back in 2017 when some respected personalities in the industry were questioned in a drug-related case. Authorities in Hyderabad questioned 16 personalities from the Telugu film industry including Charmi, Puri Jagannadh, Navdeep, Ravi Teja, and Mumait Khan.

Since that time, according to the Congress leader, a friendship has grown between Kavita, Charmi, Vijay Devarakonda, and Puri Jagannadh. While nothing can be said to be confirmed as of now, Judson has asked for a thorough investigation into the matter.
“Liger is a huge loss venture but no financiers are coming out, seeking compensation. That’s because there’s a lot of black money involved. I have approached the ED to investigate the same,” he added.
