Kasthuri Bigg Boss
Actress Kasthuri has been a famous host and a quiz presenter on popular quiz programme 'Vina Vidai Vettai' on Puthuyugam TV. The actress gained popularity again with her participation as a contestant in popular reality TV show 'Bigg Boss'.

She was part of the Bigg Boss Tamil season 3 hosted by Kamal Haasan last year. She entered the Bigg Boss house as a wildcard contestant, but eliminated in 18 days. She rejected the offer to stay in secret room and decided to opt out from the show.

The actress has recently revealed in her twitter page that she did not get the payment from Vijay TV for the Bigg Boss show she was part of, even after an year now. Kasturi tweeted "No words to thank @vijaytelevision who have withheld my payment for over a year. நான் பிக் பாஸ் நிகழ்ச்சியில கலந்துக்கிட்டதே manumission குழந்தைகளோட ஆப்பரேஷன் செலவுக்காகத்தான். I never believed any of your fake promises, but even I didnt expect this."

Vijay TV, after Kasthuri's allegations, responded with an official statement of clarification, stating that the professional fees were paid to the actress but part of payment was not issued due to GST mismatch for which Kasthuri has to provide some information.

Star Vijay's statement read "We are a responsible channel and are very mindful of making timely payments to everyone working on our shows as per the contractual terms. While the professional fees for Ms. Kasthuri Shankar’s participation in Bigg Boss Tamil, Season 3 has been paid to her in December 2019, the GST amount payable towards the same has been withheld by us due to a mismatch in her GST filings. We are awaiting certain details and documentation from her, after receipt of which the GST amount will be cleared. She has also failed to raise and submit the invoice for her appearance on another show of the channel, due to which we have been unable to make that payment."

Yes, GST is causing lot of troubles.
