Kajol wants to make movie business tax free
Kajol wants entertainment tax to be abolished, but she acknowledges it’s a Utopian dream.
“I don’t believe I have the expertise to talk over it, but ideally, I would want the entertainment industry to be completely tax-free,” says Kajol. “But since that’s not going to go on in the foreseeable future, I will give it to the government to get that call and decide.”
The actress recently joined the Swatch Bharat campaign through a brand she endorses, and conceives that such causes supported by celebrities clicks with the masses.
“I think it’s good. Whatever the reasons may be (for endorsement), I think the results are correct. I feel people need to stand up and talk about things. I don’t think it would be a cause if there was no necessity for it. As far as celebrities are concerned, when I change channels, I will stop when I see a known face. And that’s why people stop to listen to us,” explains the actress.
