Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar feels ‘Pink’ is more of a ‘movement’ and needs to be Tax Free

This contemporary youth-centric film conveys a strong, socially-relevant message about the choices young women of today make and about respecting those

Nairobi, 20 Sept 2016: Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar is extremely proud of “Pink” and wants the film to be exempt from entertainment tax.

“We want it to be tax-free. People have been asking us to make it tax-free. I think we are on the verge of making it tax-free,” Sircar said at a press conference.

Narrated in a linear manner, the simply presented film, essentially a courtroom drama, is powerful because of its dialogues and performances.

Sircar, who is known for his content-driven films, says he would make stories only when there is some lesson to be learnt.

“People ask me ‘why don’t you do potboilers?’ But in school, I learnt only one thing — that there has to be some moral to the story. And if there is no moral, there is no point in making a film.

Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhary, “Pink” stars Amitabh Bachchan in the role of a lawyer. The film also features Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang, Angad Bedi, Piyush Mishra and Dhritiman Chatterjee in key roles.

Recently, filmmaker Ashoke Pandit said that “Pink” is a “movement” that needs to be made tax-free at theatres. (IANS)
