It was referring to reports, including by some television channels, on Monday that the officers of the Directorate had searched the premises of the company.

"It is to clarify that the officers of DGGSTI have not conducted any such search operations and the news which is being circulated is factually incorrect and false," Joint Director of DGGSTI PVK Rajasekhar said in a release.

Actor-producer Vishal has his own film production unit Vishal Film Factory.

Vishal is the president of Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) and general secretary of the South Indian Artistes' Association.
