The government sleuths cited the reason of visit as to check a parcel that was delivered to the Daggubati’s from all the way to Dubai.Also Read - Rana Daggubati, Kajol, Karan Johar to Feature in New Discovery Series 'The Journey of India'
When speaking to Hyderabad Times, Rana Daggubati’s father Suresh Babu Daggubati said there was nothing suspicious about the parcel.

Recently in an interview, Rana commented on this issue saying: “Honestly, the whole thing has been blown out of proportion. If a filmmaker or an actor takes drugs, it really doesn’t bother me. They are adults and it’s their lives and they can do whatever they want. I don’t give a damn if you take drugs.” He added saying, “The dangerous story about school kids doing drugs worries me. That’s something that needs to be taken more seriously and addressed immediately. When youngsters who don’t have a mind of their own are doing drugs, it scares me.” On the career front, Rana awaits the release of Telugu-Tamil political drama “Nene Raju, Nene Mantri”.
