Hyderabad: The residence and offices of producers Dil Raju and DVV Danayya have reportedly been raided by Income Tax Authorities today (January 10). Surprisingly, the IT raids are conducted just a day after the release of Danayya's Naayak and a day before the release of Raju's much-hyped production Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (SVSC), which will hit the screens across the world.
Dil Raju is producing the big budget film Seethamma Vaakitlo Sirimalle Chettu followed by Ram Charan's Yevadu. It was speculated earlier that both these films are valued at nearly Rs 100 crores and the producer would be brought under the IT scanner. It was also rumoured that DVV Danayya would also come under the IT scanner over his big-budget movie Naayak starring Ram Charan Teja.
As speculated, the IT sleuths have reportedly invaded Dil Raju's residence in Srinagar, his distribution and production offices in search of important documents and account details. Another rumour that is circulating on the Twitter is that IT officials have also conducted raids on the office of DVV Danayya. But an official announcement about both raid is yet to come.
However, this is not the first time that IT sleuths are conducting raids on Dil Raju's office. After the sensational hit of Brinadavanam, his distribution and production offices were raided by the Income Tax officials in the city. But interestingly, nothing was revealed about the IT investigation. It should be seen whether they will make an official announcement about the latest raids or not.
