Post the demonetization roll out, the Income Tax department is being super active and is targeting several high-profile celebs.
On Saturday, actor and Hindupur TDP MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna’s family members had to face the heat of IT officials. Reportedly, when Balayya’s wife Vasundhara and some other family members landed at Renigunta airport, they were surrounded by IT sleuths and asked them to cooperate for search as they got information that the family was carrying high amounts of old currency.
IT officials reportedly found Rs 10 lakh worth old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes and when they questioned them why they were carrying such high amount, Vasundhra told them that they were going to drop the cash at Tirupati hundi. As their answers looked convincing, they were left untouched by the IT officials.
But, this act has given a strong indication that no celeb is safe from the IT net.
