It's been four days since southern actress Anjali went missing after accusing her step mother Bharati Devi and Tamil director Kalanjiyam of harassment. She continues to be untraced.

The police have questioned Telugu producer Suresh Kondeti to ascertain her whereabouts.

"Anjali was in touch with producer Suresh Kondeti. We questioned him after we came to know that she called him. We are likely to trace her in a couple of days," D.V. Pradeep Kumar, Inspector Jubilee Hills, said.

Kondeti bought the distribution rights of Telugu dubbed film "Crazy" starring Anjali and a host of other actors. It is the Tamil remake of "Delhi Belly", titled "Settai".

Anjali disappeared from her hotel room Monday where she was staying with her uncle Suri Babu. According to hotel officials, she was last seen boarding a car outside the hotel.

She had complained that her step mother Bharati Devi and director Kalanjiyam were mentally torturing her and have been using her like an ATM.

Following Anjali's allegation, her step mother and director Kalanjiyam stated that they caused her no harm and were clueless about reported harassment charges.


Kalanjiyam also filed a defamation suit against Anjali Tuesday for charging him with baseless allegations. He said he was ready to answer all charges against him in court.

Bharati Devi filed a police complaint Wednesday alleging that Anjali may have been kidnapped and is being forced to issue statements against her and director Kalanjiyam.

Anjali was to join the sets of Telugu remake of "Bol Bachchan" Wednesday. Since she failed to show up, the film unit began shooting scenes that don't involve her.

"We couldn't wait any longer because we are working on a tight schedule and, therefore, started filming scenes that do not include her. I hope she returns soon," Sravanti Ravikishore, producer of the film told earlier.

Anjali is known for successful films such as "Engaeyum Eppothum", "Kalakalappu" and "Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu".

She made her cinematic debut with Tamil drama "Sathamindri Muthamidu", which was directed by Kalanjiyam. However, that film never saw the light of the day.
