Bollywood producer-director Farah Khan, who will make her acting debut with "Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi", has expressed her displeasure over the government's announcement of service tax to be levied on actors.
Bollywood and TV actors will be charged 12 per cent service tax from this month on their earnings from acting and endorsements. This will be in addition to their income tax obligations.
"And just as I have turned 'actress', the government has decided to also charge 12.5 per cent service tax to all actors. This is tooo much. Kitna nichodogey yaar? (How much more will you take from us?)," Farah posted on Twitter.
"Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi" is a romantic comedy directed by Bela Bhansali Sehgal and also stars Boman Irani.
Actor Arshad Warsi also quipped similar concern saying, "With this service tax, there will be some more jobless actors... Blame it on the tax. Very soon all actors payment will go directly to the Govt and they will start giving us the little per cent that is left for us as salary."
