After being questioned by the ED, Vijay spoke to reporters and stated, “With great popularity comes challenges and there’s nothing you can do about it. But I see this as an experience. I did my duty when they called. I went and answered their questions.” Vijay was questioned for an alleged violation of FEMA (Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999). A few weeks ago, ‘Liger’ director Puri Jagannadh and producer Charme Kaur were questioned by the investigating agency.
Ananya Panday essayed the lead opposite Vijay in the movie, which was reportedly made on a budget of Rs 50 crore. ‘Liger’ tanked badly at the box office and managed to rake in only Rs 20 crore nett. ‘Liger’ which released in August this year, featured Vijay in the role of a boxer. The agency is also questioning those connected to ‘Jana Gana Mana’, which is again helmed by Puri and features Vijay Devarakonda in the lead.
