Recently, Actress Taapsee Pannu opened about 3 days of an intense raid that took place at her property on Saturday. The young and talented actress shared the details of the raid on her Twitter account and the tweet goes like this:
“3 days of intense search of 3 things primarily 1. The keys of the “alleged” bungalow that I apparently own in Paris. Because summer holidays are around the corner. 2. The “alleged” receipt worth 5 crores to frame n keep for future pitching coz I’ve been refused that money before 3. My memory of 2013 raid that happened with me according to our honorable finance minister P.S- “not so sasti” anymore.” she said on Twitter.

Mathias Boe jumps in to help her girlfriend Taapsee Pannu
Earlier, Taapsee Pannu’s boyfriend and retired badminton player from Denmark, Mathias Boe, extended his arm to help her in this matter and sought help from Union Minister Kiren Rijiju that her parents are in shock and under stress after witnessing the raid and search operation. But Union Minister professionally replied to him to stay out of this and should pay attention to his professional duties.
Mathias Boe tweeted on March 4 to seek help from Kiren Rijiju and said “Finding Myself in a bit of turmoil. Representing India for the first time as a coach for some great athletes, meanwhile, the I-T department is raiding Taapsee’s houses back home, putting unnecessary stress on her family, especially her parents. @KirenRijiju please do something.”

But the Union Minister did not sit quietly and replied to his tweet the next day, “Law of the land is supreme and we must abide by that. The subject matter is beyond your and my domain. We must stick to our professional duties in the best interest of Indian Sports.”

Nirmala Sitharaman’s views on this matter
This didn’t stop here, in fact, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also stepped in by commenting on this matter and highlighted the fact that the same people were raided back in 2013 but there was no resistance back then as it is happening now.
The income tax department began its search on March 3 on Taapsee’s houses and offices and her partner Anurag Kashyap was also caught in the act, who is the owner of Phantom Films production house.
The probe took over to 30 places in Mumbai and Pune against Phantom films, and the investigation also covered Reliance Entertainment group CEO Shibhashish Sarkar and some of the executives of celebrities and talent management companies KWAN and Exceed.
