The Income Tax Department recently conducted raids at Anurag Kashyap, Taapsee Pannu, Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena‘s residences. Their houses were searched by IT officials as part of a tax evasion probe related to Phantom Films. Now, Taapsee Pannu has finally spoken on the matter. However, Kangana Ranaut came all gun blazing at her as soon as she shared her tweet.
Taapsee wrote, “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 2. The “alleged” receipt worth 5 crores to frame n keep for future pitching coz I’ve been refused that money before.”
Referring to Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman‘s comment on similar raids being conducted in 2013, during the UPA government, Taapsee said, “3. My memory of 2013 raid that happened with me according to our honourable finance minister. P.S- “not so sasti” anymore.”
Kangana Ranaut, who often calls Taapsee her sasti copy, responded to her tweet writing, “You will always remain sasti because you are sab rapists ka feminist… your ring master Kashyap was raided in 2013 as well for tax chori… government official’s report is out if you aren’t guilty go to court against them come clean on this … come on sasti.”
Responding to a Twitter user, Kangana Ranaut further wrote, “But her alleged rapist ring master was raided in 2013, FM clearly referred to him,entire Phantom and Kwan gang who were accused of multiple rapes and molestations by hundreds of women were also raided but still only this monkey doing sasta Tamasha… where are the ring masters?
In their statement, the Central Board of Direct Taxes claimed that they discovered financial irregularities of over 650 crore after they raided two production companies, two management companies and a leading actress (referring to Pannu).
