Kamal Haasan On GST Impact: Filmmaking Has Been Made Difficult In Tamil Nadu Deliberately

In Tamil Nadu, theatres were shut down on Monday in protest against the high taxation. Kamal Haasan has said that filmmaking in Tamil Nadu has been made difficult deliberately following the government’s decision to levy 30 per cent entertainment tax over and above the newly implemented GST. The Goods and Services Tax (GST) came into effect from July 1. Reacting on the double taxation by the state, Haasan said in a statement, “Filmmaking has been made difficult deliberately. There are further tortures and systemic corruption that the film Industry has to endure under this regime.”
