Telugu film actress Neethu Agarwal has been recently arrested in the immoral act of sandalwood smuggling.
According to the police the actress has links with smugglers of sandalwood and has been sent into judicial custody for her role in transferring Rs 1.05 lakh from her bank account into the account of infamous red sanders smuggler Balu Naik, who has already been into the police net in connection with red sanders smuggling.
In addition Neethu Agarwal is being alleged to be a mistress of Kondampalli Mastan Vali, a notorious and heavyweight YSR Congress leader, film producer and President of Chagalamarri Mandal. Interestingly prior to Neetu’s arrested Vali is already been booked by the police in the same case.
It may be noted that Kondampalli Mastan Vali has a dubious track record. His raise from a lemon juice vendor to Congress leader is packed with many illegal and illegitimate doings. He has over 20 criminal cases and has been also booked under Preventive Detention (PD) Act.
Neethu Agarwal in her statement to police alleged, “I was lured by Kondampalli Mastan Vali into films and he also produced a Telugu film PREMA PRAYANAM with me in the lead to prove his legitimacy. Hence I trusted him.”
“Later he married me but soon unleashed terror on me by harassing and subjecting me with domestic violence,” mourned Neethu Agarwal.
Like Neethu Agarwal film industry is filled with many sob stories of beautiful girls being enticed into films by such underworld crooks.
In the early 70’s prominent smuggler Haji Mastan, on whose life the movie ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAI, was made had great passion for Bollywood. He had relation with an actress Sona, whom he promoted in films. Later he married her.
India’s most wanted criminal and famed international underworld don Dawood Ibrahim is known for exploiting the gorgeous Mandakini, who created ripples in Raj Kapoor’s RAM TERI GANGA MAILI (1985).
Besides cute looking Monica Bedi too dreamed of becoming a popular heroine in Bollywood but all her dreams were shattered after her links with infamous as gangster Abu Salem were exposed.
Likewise the hot and sensuous Mamta Kulkarni, who was having a great career in Bollywood with hit films like Rakesh Roshan’s KARAN ARJUN, Nana Patekar starrer KRANTIVEER and Rajkumar Santoshi’s multi starrer CHINA TOWN, suddenly quit Bollywood and got attracted to Vicky Goswami, an alleged drug kingpin and her life was ruined after her detention in Kenya along with her husband and Vicky Goswami few years back.
Underworld has always been bowled over with Bollywood beauties and its a tragedy that young girls in lure of a prospective career in films pay a heavy price.
