A delegation comprising actors Ambareesh, V. Ravichandran, Shivarajkumar, Raghavendra Rajkumar, Puneet Rajkumar, Sudeep, Tara, Bhavana and Shruti met Governor H.R. Bharadwaj and handed over a memorandum demanding that the Union Government withdraw the service tax.

The bandh was observed following direction from Film Federation of India. Speaking to presspersons, KFCC president K.V. Chandrashekar said that introduction service tax would be a huge burden and despite several appeals Centre was not prepared to reverse its decision.
