If you thought the age of the highwayman was a thing of the past, think again. Better still, ask popular Telugu writer Kona Venkat and producer DVV Danayya. The duo got robbed at knifepoint in Hyderabad when they were returning home from a party late at night on Thursday.
The incident happened at a place called Shadnagar.
"A very shocking moment for me & our producer Danayya garu, when we got looted at knife point by some highway robbers last night at Shadnagar. This incident happened as we are returning from Prakash Raj's birthday party at his farm house last night (sic)," Venkat tweeted on Friday.

"The robbers cut one tree and blocked the road and as we stopped the vehicle, with an axe they broke the driver's window and opened the doors and put a large knife on my throat and demanded to give everything we had. Took everything from us and left," he posted.
Venkat and Danayya have filed a police complaint.
