Telugu film director Puri Jagannadh on Saturday lodged a complaint with the police in Hyderabad, alleging that he was assaulted by three persons.

Jagannadh in his complaint alleged that Abhishek, Sudhir and M Subbaiah came to his office at Jubilee Hills on Thursday and assaulted him demanding back the money they had invested in the Telugu film 'Loafer' which released last year, sub-inspector Maqsood Ali said adding police was investigating the matter.

The movie which starred Chiranjeevi's nephew Varun Tej released in 2015.

Times of India reported that Puri came to the police station around 4 pm and told the cops that `Loafer', did not do well and hence, the financiers were demanding that he compensate them for the losses they suffered.

The report adds that a case was filed under sections concerning trespass and extortion, among other things.
