On March 3, Income Tax officials carried out searches at properties linked to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and actor Taapsee Pannu in Mumbai. Reportedly, the searches are going in connection with some "tax evasion" matter. Searches took place at nearly 20 locations in Mumbai and Pune. This includes premises linked to a talent agency as well as Phantom Films, which was co-promoted by Anurag Kashyap and producers Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena. Anurag Kashyap and Taapsee Pannu are outspoken critics of the government and have lent their voice to various causes, including the ongoing farmer protests against central laws.
