The Bollywood film industry is most probably going to go on strike because of the decision of the Indian government to levy a 12.36% service tax on TV and film actors.

Mukesh Bhatt, the president of the Film & TV Producers Guild had told people that they were currently in talks on whether to go on strike  or not. He added that there was a meeting to be held soon where a decision will be taken.

Actors will have to bear this indirect tax apart from the income tax that they pay and producers feel that it is going to affect them the most.
