The Telugu show marked the debut of Tamannaah in hosting and made sure to leave no stone unturned for the first season. Her glamorous outfits are TRP ratings are proof of it.
Now, according to the latest reports, it seems like not all is well between the makers and the host. The actress has decided to take legal action against the makers for unprofessional behaviour. The actress’ lawyer issued a statement, which read, “Due to the non-payment of dues on MasterChef Telugu and unprofessional conduct by the production house Innovative Film Academy, Tamannaah Bhatia is being forced to take legal action. Despite the continuous non-payment and unprofessional approach, she cancelled other commitments and was determined to complete the entire project. However, since the production house has overnight stopped communication with her, she is now forced to consider filing a legal suit against them.”
A few days ago, there were reports that Tamannaah has decided to back out of the show and popular Telugu host Anasuya Bhardwaj will be replacing her in MasterChef Telugu.
