The Income-Tax Department is conducting searches at the premises linked to some Bollywood figures in Mumbai. Reportedly, the properties linked with actress Taapsee Pannu and director/producer Anurag Kashyap and Vikas Bahl are under Income Tax radar today.
Sources have it that over 22 locations of people related to Phantom Films, Kwan talent management agency and various other agencies and productions houses are being searched since Wednesday morning. Shibhashish Sarkar (CEO Reliance Entertainment), Afsar Zaidi (CEO Exceed), Vijay Subramaniam (CEO Kwan) are a few of the name that came out.
Tax evasion is learnt to be the main agenda behind the searches, while the Union minister Prakash Javadekar the matter later goes to court. It can be noted that director Anurag and actress Taapsee are known to be vocal about their criticism of the government.
