On Thursday morning, Income Tax (IT) officials raided house and offices of top Kannada actors Shivaraj Kumar, Puneeth Rajkumar, Sudeep and Yash, and producers Rockline Venkatesh, CR Manohar and Vijay Kiragandur. Cars, houses, offices, documents, cash, gold and every belonging of the actors have been seized for the verification.
KGF star Yash said, “I’m not afraid as I haven’t done anything wrong. We should allow IT officials to do their duty and not speculate anything.” On the other hand, actor Sudeep said, “Nothing to worry about the raid, which has nothing to do with politics.”
For Vijay Kiragandur and Yash, the development comes on the back of a successful end to 2018 with the release of KGF (Kolar Gold Fields) which stormed the box office. According to film trade reports, the earnings of KGF has crossed Rs 154 crore.
