Ajay Devgn Starrer ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ Made Tax Free in Uttar Pradesh
Uttar Pradesh government has made ‘Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior’ SGST (State Goods and Services Tax) free in the state. The decision was taken after Ajay Devgn requested the Chief Minister for the same. UP CM Yogi Adityanath informed the public about this decision in a series of tweets.
“Chief Minister Shri @myogiadityanath Ji has made Hindi feature film ‘Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior’ SGST free in the state. The Chief Minister has taken this decision so that people can get inspiration from the heroic saga of Chhatrapati Shivaji’s courageous commander Tanhaji Malusare,” UP CM tweeted.
“Co-prouder and well-know actor Mr. Ajay Devgn had requested the UP government to make the movie tax free in the state. Shri Ajay Devgn is portraying the character of the great Tanhaji Malusare,” Yogi Adityanath further added.
Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji and Deepika Padukone’s Chhapaak were released in theaters last Friday. Chhapaak attracted a lot of controversies, as Deepika visited JNU days before the release to stand in solidarity with the JNUSU.
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior had an impressive opening weekend, with an income of over Rs. 61.75 crores. The movie is based on the life of great Maratha warrior Tanhaji Malusare, who was commander of the great Maratha King Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The films also feature Saif Ali Khan, who plays the main protagonist Udaybhan Singh Rathore, Sharad Kelkar as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, and Kajol among others.
Last week, Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak has been declared tax-free by Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh government. The announcement was made by Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on twitter.0 Replies to “Ajay Devgn Starrer ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ Made Tax Free in Uttar Pradesh”
