As you might be aware, the Income Tax Department on March 3 had raided 30 locations in Mumbai and Pune as part of a tax evasion probe against the now-defunct production house Phantom Films. Searches were conducted at the homes and offices of Taapsee Pannu, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and others, including Reliance Entertainment group CEO Shibhasish Sarkar. Now, while talking to NDTV, Taapsee opened up about the raids and has said that she will happily serve the punishment is anything is found wrong.
"I have answered all their questions and if there is anything wrong it will come out. It's not like I can hide anything if I have done anything wrong. I have cooperated in all possible ways and if there is something that they had found which is wrong I will be more than happy to serve the punishment that comes with it. This is the law of the land. You have decided to be a citizen of the country, you will follow that and there is nothing wrong in that," Taapsee said.
When asked if she was raided because she speaks her mind, Taapsee said, “There is no way to find out because these are highly confidential procedures. When IT raids happed, there is no option but to follow procedure.”
There were speculations about the taxmen discovering ₹ 5 crore during the searches. Taapsee said on those speculations, "I was wondering who is giving me ₹ 5 crore. If someone is giving me 5 crore I wasn’t to know it because I want those 5 crore rupees. There were stories of me having a bungalow in Paris.”
Talking about trolls, Taapsee said, "No one can get to me by trolling me. It doesn't work on me. Trolls are giving me so much time... they are closet lovers."
