Yami Gautam ED summons: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned actor Yami Gautam in a case related to alleged money laundering, reports said Friday.
As per PTI, Gautam is under the scanner for allegedly violating the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA), a central regulation that presides over foreign exchange and trade in the country.
She has reportedly been asked to appear before the Directorate next week on July 7 to give a statement on the alleged FEMA violation.
Gautam is the next big name in the ED purview, which has been looming large over the Hindi film industry. Notables from the fashion industry linked to Bollywood, including Manish Malhotra and Sabyasachi, were summoned by the ED last month in connection to a case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Gautam received foreign exchange transactions worth rupees one and a half crore in her bank account, which she didn’t disclose, according to a Hindustan Times report.
The Vicky Donor actor had been summoned by the Directorate in 2020 as well, but did not appear owing to COVID-19 restrictions.
Gautam recently married Aditya Dhar, director of film Uri, in an intimate ceremony in June. The newlyweds were spotted back in Mumbai last week. Gautam is set to star in upcoming film A Thursday and has wrapped up shoot for Dasvi.
