Yesterday (August 27) night, a Chennai-based actor has been arrested for making a hoax bomb call to a star hotel in Teynampet. As per Times of India report, the actor has worked in a web series and some short films.
Identified as Kennedy John Gangadharan, the actor was asked to meet at a star hotel by Mahesh, the manager of the firm which is making the web series. Apparently, the shooting of the web series was already underway at the hotel.
As per the report, Kennedy, a resident of Puzhal was waiting for more than an hour at the hotel. However, the manager later informed him that the shoot has been called off and asked him to leave. On getting such a reply, Kennedy got frustrated and made a hoax bomb call to the hotel at 10.30 am.
