Udhay annoyed over tax exemption

Udhayanidhi Stalin is going through a mixed bag of feelings. While his recently released Oru Kal Oru Kannadi has got good reviews from the audience and critics, which has brought him joy, missing out from getting tax exemption for the same film, has irked him. The producer-turned-actor has shared his unhappiness over the development and given a political colour to the issue.

Speaking to a daily, Udhayanidhi Stalin has claimed that the seven-member committee has denied to include his movie Oru Kal Oru Kannadi due to pressure from the higher authorities. In fact, they have admitted before him that they have been forced to reject his film from getting tax benefit. He adds that even though he is from a political family, the producer-turned-actor's prime occupation is cinema and he has been simply dragged into the issue.

He further claims that there decision will not only affects him but also the exhibitors and distributors. He ends on the note by giving an example of a recent Tamil film, which despite having an English track, became eligible for the tax exemption. Meanwhile, Oru Kal Oru Kannadi, which also features Hansika Motwani and Santhanam, is doing good business at the Box Office.
