The searches are being carried out in over 30 locations in Mumbai and Pune, officials said. Some executives of celebrity and talent management company KWAN are also being raided.

The Income Tax Department on Wednesday raided premises linked to the filmmakers, including Anurag Kashyap, who launched production house Phantom Films, and Bollywood actor Taapsee Pannu, among others, officials said.

The searches are being carried out in over 30 locations in Mumbai and Pune, officials said. Some executives of celebrity and talent management company KWAN are also being raided.

The action is part of a tax evasion probe and sources said some inter-linked transactions between the entities searched are under the scanner of the department and the raids are aimed at gathering more evidence to further probe tax evasion allegations.

The Internet was quick to respond and drew parallels between the IT raids and demolishing of Kangana Ranaut’s office by the BMC.
