Katrina Kaif may have sung “tere haath na aane wali” for Sheila Ki Jawaani, but the Income Tax Department thinks otherwise. After Katrina’s house was raided by the tax men on 24th January, the actress’ chartered accountant has put forward a statement to put rumours to a rest.
In the statement issued, the CA did not deny the raids but said that Katrina was “disturbed by the speculative reports circulating in the media that she has disclosed unaccounted income running into crores & unaccounted lockers were found.” While refuting rumours about unaccounted money, it also mentioned that Katrina had no unaccounted income and ended with a mandatory, “Katrina is fully cooperating with the IT Dept, whom she holds in high regard.”
The chartered accountant did not mention any details about the reason for the raids on her home and office.
Katrina Kaif wasn’t the only B-town babe to bear the brunt of the Income Tax Department’s suspicions. Even Priyanka Chopra’s house and office were raided by the IT team. In fact, the officers stayed overnight at Priyanka’s place as her mother Madhu, who handles all her finances, was out of station. PC had to stay at home till Tuesday evening.
