It is known news that IT sleuths held searches in connection with the success of Vijay starrer Bigil, which was a box office hit and collected around Rs 300 crores at the box office. The income tax (IT) department had recovered Rs 65 crore from the residence of Vijay’ alleged financer in Chennai.
Now according to the latest update, the Income Tax Department summoned Tamil actor Vijay over charges of tax evasion on Monday again and his alleged links with financier Anbu Chezhiyan. The development comes after the Income Tax Department on Friday carried out a raid at Vijay’ residence in Panaiyur area in Chennai.
According to the latest update, Vijay has been summoned by IT (Income Tax) department here for further explanations. However, senior Income Tax officials declined to confirm or deny the summons.
Last week, as a part of search operations at AGS Group, the Income Tax department officials had brought Bigil star Vijay from Neyveli where he was shooting for his upcoming film Master.
Few days ago, four major Tamil film industry players were under the Income Tax scanner, including AGS Group with AGS Cinemas and AGS Entertainment in collaboration. According to a press statement issued by the I-T Department, all of them are associated with Bigil.
