Actor Vishal’s production office was visited by IT officials yesterday afternoon. They were apparently there to verify non-deposit of TDS amounting to Rs 51 lakh to the government. The actor was not present at the venue as he was shooting.

Reports say that Vishal’s employee has assured that the amount will be deposited in installments soon. The visit lasted few hours as they checked the premises.

Many believe that actor Vishal is a victim of witch hunt as he had strongly condemned the ruling party for its criticism of Mersel film. He had also called out H Raja of the BJP for watching a pirated version of the film.
