Veteran actor and filmmaker Kamal Haasan who prefers to question anyone for films revealed that he would rather quit making films if the proposed GST rate for the film industry gets implemented. He discussed about the impact of GST on Indian cinema. GST will sure ruin regional cinema reminded Kamal Haasan. Kamal revealed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should reconsider his decision of GST on cinema.
Kamal said “Most of the awards in the country come from small films and their contribution to Indian cinema has been exceptional. Made on one-tenth budget of a Hindi film, if imposed GST along with Income tax, where will the filmmaker go. Can he afford that much. Where is the government taking regional cinema. I will be left with no choice except giving cinema a quit”. The actor is currently busy with Vishwaroopam 2 and Sabash Naidu.
