Chahatt Khanna, who is one of the actors summoned by ED in the extortion and money laundering case, said that she met a well-dressed man who introduced himself as the owner of a TV channel and ex-Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalitha’s nephew. She said that when she asked him why he called her to meet in the jail, he went down to his knees.
