Budget 2018: Actor Kajol wants entertainment industry to be completely tax free

Posted In: News Date:Jan 12th, 2018

Acclaimed actor Kajol feels that the entertainment industry should be made tax free. However, she wants to leave the judgement on the government.

During the launch of a corporate campaign as its brand ambassador in Mumbai, Kajol was asked about her expectation from the Union Budget, which will be presented on February 1.

"That's a very complicated question which I don't know whether I have the expertise to discuss it. However, if you ask me, I ideally want entertainment industry to be completely tax-free. But, as it is not going to happen in my foreseeable future, I will leave it to the government to do what they see best," said Kajol.

Asked about the 12 per cent tax levied by the government on sanitary napkins, the actor said the administration would decide what was best and she would refrain from commenting.

"As far as women's sanitary napkins are concerned, there is a tax on milk, rice... So, I think the government will know what's best and how it should be," she said.

Now a days, many top celebrities are coming forward to lend their support for various social causes and campaigns and Kajol feels that its a good move.
