The Income Tax Department has now started a new practice. On the day of a new film release, IT raids take places in concerned producer, director and actors premises.
At the time of Puli release, the Income Tax Department had raided the premises of the producers, director Chimbudevan and Vijay. Since the raid took place for 2 days, there were some problems in releasing the film.
The same fate which happened to Puli has now taken place for Bala’s Thara Thappattai. Few days back, the Income Tax department raided the house and office of Bala. It is understood that during these raids, some important documents were seized.
Upset over this, Bala had cancelled the press meet which was to take place on 12th. Apart from this, he also switched of his mobile phone fearing the media. The press show of Thara Thappattai will take place today. Bala who usually attend these screenings will not be available today.
