This is the case of a sick wannabe pervert who can be termed as a ‘Bollywood Terrorist’. Venu Gopal Rao Shenoy sends messages to Film Personalities (Especially female models, actresses, aspirants) on their Facebook handle about his two movies which are in progress of making. And also claims that he is under negotiations with big names of Film Industry and Bollywood for his next project. “Hi ‘XYZ’, myself, V G Rao., a Bangalore based Media person / Producer.

When inquired about this whole issue, We understood this one to be yet another case of conning in the name of Films and Bollywood. Moreover, When we looked closely in his Facebook account, He has posted regional languages film parties and mahurat pictures claiming under his name. If this person is searched on Google, There are no results about him.
After this News, Venu might change his name or his account. But we can only request all the aspirants, models, actresses and crew-members to kindly check a person thoroughly before responding.
