Kajol wants entertainment tax to be abolished, but she admits it’s a Utopian dream. “I don’t think I have the expertise to discuss it, but ideally, I would want the entertainment industry to be completely tax-free,” says Kajol. “But since that’s not going to happen in the foreseeable future, I will leave it to the government to take that call and decide.”

The actress recently joined the Swachh Bharat campaign through a brand she endorses, and believes that such causes supported by celebrities clicks with the masses. 

 

“I think it’s good. Whatever the reasons may be (for endorsement), I think the results are correct. I feel people need to stand up and talk about things. I don’t think it would be a cause if there was no necessity for it. As far as celebrities are concerned, when I change channels, I will stop when I see a known face. And that’s why people stop to listen to us,” explains the actress. 

On the Supreme Court’s decision to allow movie theatres the discretion to play the Nati-onal Anthem, Kajol says, “I cannot speak for the rest of the country, but when I hear the National Anthem, I automatically stand up.”
