The Film Nagar Cooperative Housing Society has brought out the scam in the Tollywood industry. Recently an inquiry conducted into the alleged irregularities in the allotment of plots and memberships of the Society and in the line of enquiry are actorturned-realtor Murali Mohan, actor Kaikala Satyanarayana and A Ramesh Prasad, managing director of Prasad Laboratories, former president of
Film Nagar Housing Society V B Rajendra Prasad.

There has been a discrepancy in the allotments of plots. Though the society bylaws allow each member to be allotted only one plot yet some members own more than one , in fact about seven to eightplots, in the names of their family members and even in benami names. T Chinnappa Reddy, one of the members, owns seven plots in the name of his wife, two daughters and mother. He claims to be afilm producer but has not produced a single movie. This proves that even those people were allotted plots who did not belonged to the film industry. Actor Murali Mohan, who also owns Jayabheri Arts Productions, reportedly holds eight plots in the name of his family members by claiming that they are part of Jayabheri Art Productions. All these were revealed in an inquiry report, which added that theprocedures and bylaws had not been followed by the management committee right from the beginning with respect to the allotment of plots and admission of members into the society.

The report also revealed that the plots, which are actually meant to be used for residential purposes ,were being used for commercial purposes. Some members had not constructed their housesafter the allotment of plots despite the society having issued legal notice to these members A high-level inquiry into the issue has been suggested by N Kiranmayee, person in-charge of Film Nagar Cooperative Housing Society and former district cooperative officer of Hyderabad.
