Naga Babu’s daughter, actress Niharika Konidela was one of the 150 odd people who were detained after a raid was conducted in a Banjara Hills hotel in Hyderabad. In the wee hours of Sunday, Hyderabad police raided an upscale pub in Hyderabad’s Banjara Hills for operating beyond its permitted hours.
"My daughter Niharika was detained for being present at a pub in a five-star hotel last night. Police have nabbed the management for running the pub beyond permitted timings. However, the police have confirmed she is clean and has nothing to do with the drugs that were recovered," Naga Babu said in a video message.
He also urged everyone not to speculate on baseless information. "I have seen a lot of baseless news doing rounds on social media. I appeal to everyone to stop spreading such rumours,” Naga Babu urged.
For the unversed, Niharika worked as an intern at a TV channel before making her foray into TV as a host. She also worked in a theatre group, a coffee shop and also volunteered in a school before her TV debut.
