BEHIND SRK’S SILENCE…

So, the cash-inundated denizens of B-town are evidently in hot water again! The Income Tax department has sent notices out to a host of stars and industrialists, including Shah Rukh Khan, asking them to spell out details of investments in offshore destinations. It is learnt that the tax office has sought details of Khan’s investments in destinations such as Bermuda, British Virgin Islands (BVI) and Dubai. While tax authorities evidently are in possession of information on offshore investments by many wealthy Indians, it is not known if the department has evidence that marks SRK’s overseas assets as undisclosed wealth. And wealth there is absolutely no shortage of, when you’re talking Bollywood’s Badshah. Named as one of the richest actors in the world, Shah Rukh had actually been placed second on the global list. His many investments, among them offshore investments, are what the IT department is keen on digging into. Apparently, the government organisation which has sent him a notice to declare his investments abroad, is seeking to find out more than his declared ownerships of shares of companies in tax havens. They are seeking to know how these companies function and who sits on the boards. King Khan is clearly not rushing to clear the air. A studied silence from his end suggests a flurry of serious activity behind the scenes, in preparation for not just battle but victory… Which is why we would go so far as to say, ‘Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahin, namumkin hai’
