Tollywood celebrities Ravi Teja, Charmee Kaur, Navdeep, Mumaith Khan, Tanish, Nandu, Tarun and Baahubali fame Rana Daggubati were previously summoned by the ED.

"The actress has been asked to appear before the investigating agency on December 19. Rakul Preet was questioned by the ED on September 2, 2021. Several Telugu actors were also questioned in the matter," a source said.According to official sources, the notices were served on Thursday under provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002. Ms Singh had also been questioned last year along with colleague Rana Daggubati and 10 others in the five-year-old drugs case.

Along with her, Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) MLA Pilot Rohith Reddy, who was recently a complainant in the MLA poaching case, has also been called in for questioning in a separate case.
