Last night they were all celebrating the successful first official screening of their upcoming film Shootout at Wadala but come today morning and the Kapoors were in for a rude shock! It is being reported that the homes and offices of Balaji Telefilms Joint Managing Director Ekta Kapoor, Chairman Jeetendra, Managing Director Shobha Kapoor and Director Tusshar Kapoor were raided by the Income Tax department early today morning for allegedly defaulting on taxes.

While as of now there was no official comment from Balaji and there is still no clear picture on the same as to how the raid has progressed so far, it has been speculated that the company Balaji Telefilms came under the scanner because of defaultment in payment of taxes.

Balaji Telefilms has seen a successful run of Television serials and currently has popular serials like Pavitra Rishta, Bade Acche Laggte Hai, Ek Thhi Naayka, Kya Huaa Tera Vaada on air. It is now turning it's midas touch to films too and has produced more than 25 movies including blockbusters like The Dirty Picture, Ragini MMS and Love Sex Aur Dhokha.

They have just seen a successful release in Ek Thi Daayan while their next film Shootout at Wadala is to hit the screen this coming Friday. After the two back-to-back film releases Ekta Kapoor had planned to take a break from her hectic schedule as a successful producer in Mumbai to attend a summer entrepreneur course at the Harvard University.

Where does she hide all that money she makes, thats what the IT raid was about! Or maybe the IT officers are just looking for the lost brain of Balaji productions.

How pathetic are people on IF, just because you hate her shows, doesn't mean you have to go and say "she deserves this etc etc", I highly doubt you'd like it if someone said that about you. At least her shows have excellent actors, better then having mediocre actors with a bog standard story. Grow up and stop watching her shows if you hate her THAT much.

well. more money one makes , more they have to hide... simple fact. good citizens want to pay tax but people dont work so hard for charity to government either. Look at all of our great leaders they dont pay taxes and get away with it so why not Ekta... good luck girl
