Kamal Haasan Wants GST Reduction; Says “I’ll Be Forced To Quit Soon”

Actor Kamal Haasan has made a statement requesting the government to reduce the GST (Goods and Services Tax) on regional cinema. The tax is currently fixed at a whopping 28 percent. 

Haasan took to Twitter to say he was not pressurising but rather pleading with the government. 

According to a Times of India report, the actor had urged Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to bring down the  GST rate to 12-15 per cent. He also said he couldn’t afford the current tax rate and would be forced to quit. 

“We should remember this is not East India Company,” he said, adding that Bollywood, Hollywood, and regional cinema shouldn’t be added in the same category.
