Taapsee Pannu and Anurag Kashyap have been under public scrutiny after the Income Tax department held a raid at their apartments two days ago. After a thorough investigation conducted by the IT department, huge sums of ‘illegal’ money were found in the form of cash and transactions. According to the officials’ claim on the matter, they recovered "evidence of cash receipts by the leading actress amounting to Rs 5 crore." Apart from this, ‘bogus’ expenditure amounting to Rs 20 crores was also discovered in the director’s residence.

The probe which was held against a production house Phantom Films, which the actress and director jointly launched is also being carried out in Pune and Mumbai across 30 different locations. After seizing devices and personal information, the two were also questioned by the officers. A statement given by the IT department explained how the investigation showed ‘evidence’ of ‘suppression’ of income with Rs 350 crores of tax implication. The department further added, “The company officials have not been able to explain the discrepancy of around Rs 300 crore”. 

Taapsee and Anurag are currently filming for their forthcoming sci-fi movie Dobaaraa. Actress Swara Bhaskar, who is a close friend of the actress-director duo, came forward showing her support for the actress a day after the raid took place.  Praising the actress’s courage in this difficult time, Swara took to her Twitter handle to write, “Appreciation tweet for @taapsee who is an amazing girl with courage and conviction that is rare nowadays... Stand strong warrior!”
