Thalapathy Vijay is one of the biggest star heroes in the South film industry. His last film Bigil went on to become a big hit at the box-office. Since the producers claimed that the film hit 300 crores at the box-office, the IT officials have raided Vijay's properties, the properties of the producers and also the properties of Vijay's financiers. There are a lot of rumors in the media that Vijay too evaded the tax but the official clarity has come through the press release from the officials.
"The common thread among all these entities was the success of a recent film which was a box office hit collecting around Rs. 300 crores. About 38 premises of the group got covered in search and survey actions spread over Chennai and Madurai. The highlight of the search is the seizure of unaccounted cash of about Rs. 77 crore from hideouts and secret places located at Chennai and Madurai, purportedly belonging to the financier. In the context of the issues of the prominent Actor, it says that his investment in immovable properties and remuneration received from the said Producer for acting in the film is the subject matter of investigation in the present search. Searches in some of the premises are still continuing." revealed the press note.
On the other side, Vijay is busy with the shoot of Master.
