While Tollywood suffering the Srireddy issue, one more controversy hits Telugu Cine industry. A Telugu couple arrested in Chicago, USA on charges of running sex racket with Tollywood actress. According to a report in the Chicago Tribune, the investigation began based on a 42-page complaint filed in the US District Court in Chicago.
The prostitution scheme was allegedly masterminded by Kishan Modugumudi, 34, an Indian businessman who rose to become a player in the Tollywood movie industry and co-produced several hit films.
The complaint alleged that Modugumudi threatened the life of one of the actresses and her family if she told law enforcement the truth about what she did while in the country.
Also charged was Modugumudi’s wife, Chandra, 31, who allegedly kept detailed ledgers of the sex acts performed by each girl, including where they occurred and how much they collected.
Federal agents discovered the ledgers when they searched the Modugumudis’ apartment in the 5700 block of West Belden Avenue in February, according to the complaint. They also found more than 70 condoms divided up into “multiple Ziplock bags.”
The ring charged clients up to $3,000 for each sexual encounter. The actresses came on temporary visas, at least five actresses were sometimes forced to stay in a dingy, two-story apartment building in Chicago’s Belmont Cragin neighborhood waiting for their next “date,” the charges alleged. They also met clients in hotels at conferences in Dallas, New Jersey and Washington.
The rocket busted when the customs questioned an young telugu actress arrived at O’Hare International Airport on Dec 25, 2017. After the initial investigation cops found substantial evidence and arrested the Modugumudi couple in the month of April,2018. Their two school going children were sent to the custody of child welfare officials in Virginia.
