Vishal speech at press meet after 10% Entertainment tax issue

We had reported earlier today that, apart from the GST, there has been a proposal to add an additional 10 percent Entertainment tax for Tamil movies. This could prove to be detrimental for theatre owners and the film family in general. Following this, actor Vishal had called the press and media to address them and discuss regarding this proposal. At the meet, TFPC President Vishal said:

We don’t know how we are going to handle this new tax burden (GST+Entertainment Tax). We are calling for an urgent meeting regarding this. We had held many rounds of meetings among the government officials, requesting them to waive off the local tax like many other states. Tamil cinema is not in a very profitable state. Not every film runs like Baahubali. We had also asked the government for a 100 % online computer ticketing but there is no clarity till now. I am not talking as a TFPC president here but as a producer. If the government promises to eradicate piracy completely, we are ready to pay 10% entertainment tax. We will contact the ministry and put forward our requests again."

Vishal posts about Dhanshika and T.Rajendar controversy

We had reported earlier that at the Vizhithiru press meet, there were a few exchange of words between T.Rajendar and Dhanshika. Post this controversy, Sai Dhanshika had posted her views through her Twitter space and a lot of people had asked her not to worry too much. Just in is Vishal’s breaking statement and post with respect to this issue. Vishal posted through his social media handle:


Just came to know that Director Mr T Rajendran continuously targeted and accused Ms Dhanshika on stage repeatedly for not mentioning Mr TR's name in the press gathering inspite of Dhanshika apologising to Mr TR.

Director TR is a multi talented senior person. It's very common for a person on stage to miss mentioning names while addressing a gathering.

I have myself, forgotten to mention or thank certain people or the ones sitting on the dias in the past.
Dhanshika apologised and even fell on Mr TR's feet, after he pointed her out that she missed mentioning his name. Mr TR didn't pardon Dhanshika who is as old as his daughter.

It's very difficult for Women to come up in the Cine industry. I know Dhanshika very well and people who knows her know well that she wouldn't have done anything like this intentionally.

I strongly condemn Mr TR for continuously targeting Dhanshika despite the fact that she apologised to him and he could have avoided all this.

General Secretary, SICAA
