Kamal Haasan, Shankar, Murugadoss and others react to double taxation for Tamil Cinema

The double taxation (GST + Local Municipality tax) has made everyone in the industry to realise and act upon the issue. Here are the list of celebrities who have come out and spoke about the issue requesting to save Tamil Cinema.

Kamal Haasan - We (film industry) will sit together and discuss on the theatre strike issue and double taxation. We will come to a decision after the discussion.

Shankar - 48-58%.. too much tax.. save Tamil cinema

A.R.Murugadoss - #SaveTamilCinema

Harris Jayaraj - Never thought the GST will crush the 10 Lakhs family of Tamil Cinema along with others. Time to speak or never.

Karthick Naren - Film production already has enough soul crushing hurdles. This is a nail in the coffin. Depressing indeed! #GST

S.R.Prabhu - எந்த மாநிலத்திலும் இல்லாத வரி, ஒரு நலிந்துவரும் துறைக்கு விதிப்பது வேதனைக்குரியது. பாதிக்கப்பட்ட தயாரிப்பாளர்கள் நிலை? #EntertainmentTax

Madhan Karky - Disheartening to see cinema halls closed. Hope the tax is revised and the industry gets back on track. Until the revision, I am willing to reduce 15% off my remuneration for songs and dialogues, if that would help the industry.

Sibi - Piracy, Low ticket rates and now Double Taxation! #DontKillTamilCinema

Archana Kalpathi - We respect the decision made by The Film Chamber Association. #AgsCinemas will be closed from today across all locations @agscinemas. We regret the inconvenience caused to all our patrons and all other stakeholders in the business @agscinemas. Collectively our industry has been floundering for many years. We hope and pray the TN government gives us the lifeline we so badly need
