It's political background..., I am ready to quit films, says Udhayanidhi
Vanakkam Chennai is a film which had Shiva and Priya Anand in the lead roles. Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi wife of Udhayanidhi Stalin has direct...
The Tamil Nadu State Government has not granted tax exemption for this film. When asked Udhayanidhi Stalin about this, he said, "Everyone is aware of the reason for this. They can simply enact a rule by saying that tax exemption will not be given for the films produced under the banner Red Giant Movies.
I will go to the court and fight for this. I have lots of evidences. Now they have constituted a committee for this. No..There is no such comedy committee like that. The Censor Board of Central Government is doing their work sincerely. They are first people who see the film which they are not connected.
There are so many rules for them. There will be five members out of which there will be two lady members. The producer and director should not even be in the projection room. We are exhibiting our film to the tax rebate committee. Right from their servants to gardeners will accompany them and see the film.
If they come like this, there will no security for the producer. I have evidence for all of this. If it happens to be a big star film, they will bring all their relatives and friends like a picnic. Now I am going to complain this issue to the Producers Council and Film Chamber. They are asking me to pay the tax.
I only want to ask one question. When other films are getting tax rebates why my films are not getting it. It is because of political background. You bring a common rule for everyone. Immediately they will ask if this did not happen in our regime. If anyone says that a film is not released or postponed because of me, I will immediately quit the film industry. But I will not keep quite in the tax matter."
