BREAKING: Income Tax Department Confirms That There Has Been No Seizure From Actor Vijay’s Residence!

Here’s a timeline of what happened!

In a shocking turn of events, actor Vijay was escorted from his Master shooting spot in Neyveli by the Income Tax Department for an inquiry besides conducting simultaneous searches at several premises linked to a film production house, movie financier and distributors in connection with suspected tax evasion. Searches are also reportedly being conducted at the properties of AGS Group, AGS Cinemas, and film financier Anbu Chezhiyan.

An official from the IT department informed the media that “Vijay had taken a huge amount in cash towards salary for his recent blockbuster Bigil” and a warrant had been issued for the same. The publication reported that investigators drove to Vijay’s shoot site, searched his caravan, and explained to the actor why he should accompany them to Chennai.

The searches, which began in as many as 38 locations in Tamil Nadu, are still on, and unaccounted cash of about Rs 77 crore was seized from the premises of Tamil film financier Anbu Chezhiyan, who had faced allegations of intimidation and arm-twisting to recover the money, official sources told PTI.

The IT department has now confirmed that nothing has been seized from the actor’s residence as of now.

 

A lot of fans have shown disapproval for dragging him out of the shooting spot for the same. As a result, the hashtag #westandwithThalapathy and #westandwithVIJAY have been trending since morning.

 

On the professional front, Vijay is currently completing his second schedule of Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Master starring Vijay Sethupathi, Malavika Mohanan, Gowri Kishan and Andrea Jeremiah. Speculations are rife that the actor might finalise director Sudha K Prasad of Irudhi Suttru and Soorarai Pottru fame for his next but no official announcements have been made for now.
