Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif
Mumbai, Jan 28: Top Bollywood actresses Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif were recently under the Income Tax (I-T) scanner. Their residences were raided to look for unaccounted income and for possible tax evasion. Both actresses have dismissed all "malicious rumours" floating in the public space over the issue.

Post the I-T raids, the actresses gave public statements on the raids. A spokesperson of Priyanka stated, "We deny the many malicious rumours being spread in the media on the basis of some unidentified sources."

Rumours claimed that I-T officials unearthed unaccounted cash from Katrina Kaif's residence while Priyanka allegedly owns more than nine illegal flats and Rs 6 crores of unaccounted money.

Rejecting all allegations, the spokesperson claimed, "First of all, no unaccounted cash was seized from her residence. And if there are some purchases - or documents related to some purchases - which were detected and there is no immediate clarity about the source of funds for them, the matter will have to be investigated further."

"Even Priyanka will be given a chance to prove bona fides. This is an ongoing process and we cannot jump to conclusions at this point," added Priyanka's spokesperson.

A statement came from Katrina's chartered accountants, "A search was conducted by the Income Tax Dept at the residence of my client Ms Katrina Kaif. My client is disturbed by the speculative reports circulating in the media that she has disclosed unaccounted income running into crores and unaccounted lockers were found."

The representative of Katrina then continued, "The fact of the matter is that no unaccounted income has been declared by her. Katrina is fully cooperating with the IT Dept, whom she holds in high regard."
