The most discussed and controversial rule made by the Central government, the combined single Goods and Service Tax has irked the Star hero Kamal Haasan.
Kamal who doesn’t fear to voice out his opinion has stated that the new GST rule is nothing but a huge blow to the regional cinema. He said that he welcomes the single nation single tax rule which is good for some products, but he urged to exclude cinema from it. According to him, the regional movie makers cannot pay 24% of the tax to the government as they will end up in losses, so he asked the center to decrease the tax from 24% to 12-15%. On the same note, he as a filmmaker will quit the films if GST is implemented.
Agreeing the fact that GST is good for Bollywood, he ridiculed the center for imposing the same rule to the regional movies which have small budgets and markets. Kamal’s comments are now going viral all over.
