    Bollywood strike on February 23 called off

    The Bollywood strike on February 23 to protest against the imposition of a service tax on the film industry has been called off after a meeting with Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, industry officials said Tuesday. “This strike has been called off. We had a meeting with the finance minister and he has asked us to wait till the budget,” producer Ratan Jain said. “He understood our problem and we decided not to go for a strike till March 16 until the budget comes out. So, all the multiplexes and Bollywood will continue to move on without any strike on February 23,” he added.
    Film & Television Producers Guild of India vice-president Mukesh Bhatt also said that after the positive meeting with the finance minister, they have decided to remain patient till the budget. “His hands are tied right now and I will respect that. I am glad about the fact that he heard our plea patiently and has asked us to wait till the budget,” he said, adding they will wait till March 16 and then take a decision on their future course of action. The industry seems to be relieved with this decision.Click here to read more
