March 06 : Taapsee Pannu, whose Mumbai house was raided by the Income Tax Department's officials on Wednesday, has finally broken her silence as she made her comments in a number of Tweets. Taking to her Twitter handle, the Badla actress spoke on the allegations made against her, and also cracked a joke sarcastically.
Taapsee along with filmmaker Anurag Kashyap came under the scanner of the IT department as their houses were raided early this week. Taking to Twitter, Taapsee said that there is no bungalow in her name in Paris, neither a receipt of ₹5 crore payment in her name, which she said the IT men were searching in her house. She even said that there was no raid on her property in 2013 as was alleged against her.
“3 days of intense search of 3 things primarily 1. The keys of the “alleged” bungalow that I apparently own in Paris. Because summer holidays are around the corner,” the actress wrote.
Taapsee further wrote, “2. The “alleged” receipt worth 5 crores to frame n keep for future pitching coz I’ve been refused that money before.”
“3. My memory of 2013 raid that happened with me according to our honourable finance minister. P.S- “not so sasti” anymore,” the actress tweeted.
After her tweets, fans poured in comments, as one fan wrote, “Have been waiting for a tweet from u. And u r back even stronger...”
On March 3, IT Department officials began raids on the homes and offices of Taapsee, Anurag and his partners, who had launched the now-closed production house Phantom Films. The IT Department slapped tax evasion allegation against Phantom Films. Raids were conducted across 30 locations in Mumbai and Pune. Raids were also conducted on Reliance Entertainment group CEO Shibhasish Sarkar property and on the talent management companies KWAN and Exceed.
