After three days of search and IT raids at Taapsee Pannu's property, the actress has finally broken her silence on this ongoing controversy in a series of tweets. While addressing the allegations levelled against her, the Rashmi Rocket actress joked how she is not sasti anymore.
Speaking about the raids by the Income Tax department, Taapsee tweeted, "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."

For those unversed, on March 3, the Income Tax Department conducted raids on the homes and offices of Taapsee Pannu, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and his partners, who launched the defunct production house Phantom Films.
On Friday, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said the same persons were raided in 2013 as well, but no issue was made out then as it is being done now. Further, she refused refused to comment on individual cases and said that it is in the national interest to know if some evasion is happening. Taapsee broke her silence post Sitharaman's statement.
Meanwhile, post the IT raids on Taapsee Pannu and Anurag Kashyap, Bollywood celebrities like Swara Bhasker, Anubhav Sinha and others had tweeted in support of them.
