Actor Vijay, who has been vigorously shooting for his upcoming film Master was confronted by the income tax officials and was interrogated on location suggested by initial reports, he along with other 2 Tamil actors Samantha and Nayanthara got raided by the income tax officials today.
A senior income tax official told The Hindu, that a total of 2 rs crores was recovered in gold and cash from the premises of these three actors and as for now the details about the felony committed by the individual actors are unknown.
Actor Vijay has been giving out hit after hit with his last film Bigil acquiring the status of an all-time blockbuster, the income tax official also stated in their statement given to The Hindu that it isn’t that all of them didn’t pay taxes at all its just that they left a part of their income unannounced.
Actor Vijay, for one reason or the other, has made one headline after the other, and not always for the right reasons his 2017 film Mersal was dragged into controversy for its dialogues that supposedly ridiculed the Goods and Services Tax and the Digital India Program, which was picked by and made into a major issue by the Tamil politicians even demanding a ban at its release, whereas his latest film was in the news for plagiarizing the entire plot and a case in the supreme court was filed for the same as well.
The press has always something that follows Vijay, however, the saving grace for the actor is that his films always manage to earn big numbers at the box office, but this time his stardom would be put to test once more and more than ever, as he has never been hit with a setback as serious as this one which can possibly leave a dent at his reputation.
