Anjali finally appears before police

The Tamil film actor, who went missing from a hotel in Hyderabad on Monday, has appeared before the police after five days

Anjali went missing from a hotel room in Hyderabad after accusing her step mother, Bharati Devi, and Tamil director Kalanjiyam of harassment. “She (Anjali) appeared before police and made a statement saying that she wanted a break from her busy shooting schedules and stress and, therefore, had gone to Mumbai,” said Hyderabad Deputy Commissioner of Police, Sudheer Babu.

The Kalakalappu star’s step mother and director Kalanjiyam rubbished her accusations and stated that they caused her no harm and were clueless about reported harassment charges.

The star appeared before police as there was missing case registered in the city, the DCP said, adding that based on her statement a final report will be submitted to the court. “I will start shooting for my films in two days,” said Anjali on her return. She was accompanied by her brother Ravi Shankar and producer Suresh Kondeti.

Anjali is known for successful films such as Engaeyum Eppothum, Kalakalappu and Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu.
