Thalapathy Vijay Pays Full Entry Tax For His Rolls-Royce Ghost Car

Thalapathy Vijay has been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons. His old case came for hearing last year. Vijay had sought exemption from entry tax for his imported Rolls-Royce Ghost car. The case was heard and justice SM Subramanian slammed the actor for no abiding by the law. After passing scathing remarks, the judge fined him Rs 1 lakh. A part of his order read, "Tax evasion is to be construed as an anti-national habit, attitude and mindset and unconstitutional. These actors are portraying themselves as champions to bring social justice to society. Their pictures are against corrupt activities in society. But, they are evading tax and acting in a manner, which is not in consonance with the provisions of the statutes."

 
Vijay went for an appeal and the judges Duraiswamy and Hemalatha stayed the previous judgment. They also ordered Vijay to pay the full tax. Now reports suggested that Vijay had paid Rs 8 lakh and now, he paid the remaining amount of Rs 32 lakh to the commercial taxes department. In the next hearing, the decision about Subramaniam's remarks will be taken. Details about the next hearing will be out in four weeks' time.
