Why IT officials raided Vijay’s house today?

Officials of the Income-Tax department conducted raids at the residence of actor Vijay at Panaiyur today. It comes days after Master’s co-producer Lalith Kumar’s house and office properties were searched. Tight security was put in place by the city police. The reason for the raid is not yet officially told. However, it is alleged that the searches are in connection with Master’s pre-release business. The film is said to have made a business of Rs 220 crore.

Earlier, Vijay’s Bigil ran into trouble with the IT department. On 5 February, IT sleuths launched simultaneous raids at the properties of AGS Cinemas which bankrolled the film, Vijay and financier Anbu Chezhiyan. The raids were related to the profits earned by Bigil. At the time, Vijay’s residence in Panaiyur was searched for nearly 35 hours, sources said.
