Taapsee’s Bf Asked For Help To Kiren Rijiju Against IT Raid, Minister Gave Mic Drop Reply

About a month ago, Bollywood actress Tapsee Pannu along with filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, was raided by the IT department over allegations of tax evasion.

The others searched included some employees of Phantom Films, including Vikramaditya Motwane and Vikas Bahl.

To show support for the actress after the raid, Taapsee’s boyfriend Mathias Boe took to social media and asked Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju for help. Mathias mentioned that the raids are causing stress to the actress’s family.

Mathias wrote, “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.”

Mathias Boe is a former badminton player from Denmark and is serving as India’s badminton coach. He is currently with the Indian badminton players in Switzerland for the Swiss Open. Mathias won the European Championship two times- 2012 and 2017. He also won a gold medal in the European Games in 2015 and also received a silver medal at the Summer Olympics 2012.

However, the Sports Minister responded saying that it was out of their domains to discuss. He reminded him that the law of land is supreme and they should abide by it.

Kiren Rijiju wrote, “Law of the land is supreme and we must abide by that. The subject matter is beyond yours and my domain. We must stick to our professional duties in the best interest of Indian Sports.”

The searches, part of a tax evasion probe against Phantom Films also covered some executives of celebrity and talent management companies KWAN and Exceed. In a press release, the IT officials said that they have found an income discrepancy worth ₹650 crores after raids.

Meanwhile, some Bollywood celebs and political leaders criticized the raids as both Anurag Kashyap and Taapsee Pannu are outspoken critics of the government.
