The department, in a statement, without identifying either Pannu or Kashyap, said, “Evidence of cash receipts by the leading actress amounting to Rs 5 crore has been recovered. Apart from this, non-genuine/bogus expenditure to related concerns by the leading producers/director having tax implication of about Rs 20 crore has been detected. Similar findings have been made in the case of the leading actress also.”
I-T officials questioned Pannu and Kashyap at a hotel in Pune where they were shooting for a movie. I-T officials said they are probing Pannu’s endorsement of over two dozen upcoming projects and the signing amounts she has received.
