In a sort of surprising attacks, IT sleuths on Friday conducted multiple raids on the offices and other properties of producers of Baahubali, Shobu Yarlagadda, and Prasad Devineni.
Talk is that IT sleuths have been watching the Baahubali producers closely for the past two days in order to raid at a proper time. Following PM Narendra Modi’s historical decision of banning Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, Tollywood celebs are reportedly being mulling over the unaccounted cash. Taking this opportunity, IT officials seem to have started the process of targeting them.
The first IT raids are seen on the makers of the highest budgeted Tollywood film ever. Baahubali has been made with a staggering Rs 120 Cr budget, and the film has grossed more than Rs 650 Cr worldwide. The makers have already closed humongous deals for ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’, which gave an invitation to the IT sleuths.
