Rais: Malaysian-made movies with BN subtitles classified as local movies
All Malaysian-made movies in Mandarin, Cantonese or Tamil with Bahasa Malaysia subtitles are now recognised as local movies, Minister of Information, Communication and Culture Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said today.
“I have decided with our committee and I have informed the cabinet about this decision,” he said.
Citing an example, he said that ‘Ice Kacang Puppy Love’ (Cinta Ais Kacang), directed by Tan Kheng Seong or popularly known as Ah Niu, is already classified as a local movie.
“Therefore, if the movies make money at the box office, they will be given the entertainment tax rebate,” he told reporters here.
