The South star Thalapathy Vijay is having a good time as his movie Bigil is having an incredible run at the box office. The movie ruled the box office and has managed to collect a total of ₹ 300 Crores as per the trade experts. According to a report in a leading entertainment website, recent buzz claims that Vijay's salary for the movie was revealed because of the income tax raid at his residence.
The report claims that the actor was paid ₹ 30 Crores for the movie Bigil by the makers of the film. The officials from the Income Tax department also revealed that nothing was seized from Vijay's residence. All his possessions were well documented.
The income tax raid was conducted on February 5, 2020. The officials had escorted Vijay from the sets of his next movie Master and were taken to his farmhouse in Panayur in Chennai. The IT officials grilled the actor with a lot of the questions about his possessions and searched his premises for around 20 hours.
Vijay wasn't the first person from the industry to be raided by the Income Tax officials. They had conducted a raid at the office and residence of AGS Productions as well. The report claims that all these IT raids were sparked because of one tweet by Archana Kalpathi, who is the CEO of AGS films. Archana took to Twitter to share the success of the movie Bigil. She talked about how the movie had completed 100 days at the box office. She thanked the fans for its success.
