Music director Ghibran, known for his compositions such as Run Raja Run, Babu Bangaram, Ungarala Rambabu in Telugu, is under scanner by IT department on Thursday. His Chennai’s house was raided by the Tax department. It is heard that the officials grilled him about his recent TDS accounts.
However, his close association with legendary actor Kamal Haasan has become the talking point. Kamal Haasan launched his political party Makkal Needhi Maiam only a day before on 21st February. When Kamal was asked, who were the leaders he admired and took inspiration from. He replied, “I like Gandhi, Ambedkar, Nehru, Kejriwal, Naidu, Pinarayi and even Obama. All those who work (for the people).” Kamal’s supporters say IT raids on Ghibran are linked to this.
This is the third raid on Ghibran’s premises. Ghibran and Kamal Hassan have worked together for several movies like Uttama Villain, Thoongavanam, Vishwaroopam 2 and he is also scoring the music for upcoming movie Sabash Naidu.
