Even as film director Kalanjiyam on Tuesday petitioned the city police Commissioner S George seeking action against actress Anjali for maligning his image, her brother lodged a complaint with Jubilee Hills police in Hyderabad, the capital of neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, stating that she has been missing since Monday morning.
Anjali’s missing comes a day after she had released a statement to the media in Chennai alleging harassment by her aunt Bharathi Devi and director Kalanjiyam.
In his complaint, Ravi Shanker said that his sister was missing since Monday morning.
Jubilee Hills police sub-inspector M Saidulu told Express, “Ravi Shanker came here in the evening, and informed us that his sister went missing from Daspalla hotel in Jubilee Hills. He also said there was a threat to Anjali’s life from Bharathi Devi.”
The police officer said that they have launched a search for the actor after checking the hotel room and have gained access to the CCTV camera footage.
“Investigations are on and we are looking for more clues,” Saidulu added.
In her statement to the media, Anjali had said that Bharathi Devi and M Kalanjiyam should be held responsible for whatever happens to her.
