"If Tamil Nadu Government's Entertainment Tax remains, GST is a mistake", said actor Siddharth, who posted series of tweets urging Kollywood to come together to protest against the huge burden imposed by the Tamil Nadu Government.

"#TN has a shocking 'U' certificate #TaxFree scam for years.Only benefit of #GST is abolishing that. If 30% ENT tax remains, GST is a mistake! People are confused whether we have #GST + ENT tax added to net amount in ticket pricing. Hope it's just #GST @ 18% or 28% otherwise #STRIKE", posted Siddharth on Twitter.

Siddharth also lashed out at Tamil Nadu Government and asked film industry to stay united, he tweeted "#TN govt punished Tamil Cinema for years with #Ucertificate and bribes for #TaxFree & Tamil title scams. Now they want 30% + #GST ? #shame. The #TamilFilmIndustry must stand united. We are being played by this center-state confusion. #GST is one nation one tax! No exceptions!".
