Shahid Kapur questioned by Customs Department
Shahid Kapur’s recent film36 China Town has done fairly well and his pairing opposite girlfriend Kareena Kapoor has been appreciated. Shahid and Kareena were also a part of the ‘Rockstars’ worldwide concert. Shahid has quite a few other films on hand and the actor is slowly and steadily climbing the ladder in bollywood. Nonetheless Shahid has already seen a fair share of controversies, one of them being the recent tiff with Salman Khan. And just as things seem to be returning to normal, Shahid has once again been questioned by the customs department about his Toyota Land Cruiser which was imported from Dubai under the transfer of residence facility.
Shahid had previously been questioned about the purchase of his car and this is the second time that he was asked to be present in person and provide information. Shahid’s car was earlier seized but was later returned after all legal information was provided by him. According to sources Shahid purchased the car from a car importer but according to the law an imported car can only be purchased after two years. Many celebrities purchase cars from importers to evade high tax payments.
Many importers use the loopholes in the transfer of residence facility to get new vehicles into the country and then sell them to film stars. However an official claims “It is very difficult to nail any of the film stars, because they take a stand that they never knew about any violation.” Other celebrities who have been questioned by the customs department regarding their cars include Suniel Shetty and Sanjay Dutt.
However on the personal front things seem to be going great for Shahid and Kareena. In fact both the stars were recently spotted at a popular home décor store where they were seen selecting cushion covers for Shahid’s new home. Shahid had a small house warming get together and his beautiful girlfriend Kareena played the perfect host.
