Bajrangi Bhaijaan gets tax exemption in UP, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Bihar to follow

It’s another big victory for Salman Khan‘s new blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan (BB). The blockbuster which has earned a reported Rs. 102 crores on the first three days, has now been granted an exemption from entertainment tax in Uttar Pradesh.

One hears several other states including Maharashtra, Gujarat and Bihar are also on the verge of exempting BB from entertainment tax.

“It has a very strong message of peace between India and Pakistan. At a time when the two countries are facing a situation of escalated mutual distrust, Bajrangi Bhaijaan spreads a message of love and brotherhood between the two countries. We definitely feel this film needs all the encouragement it can get,” says a prominent member of the ruling BJP party.

Director Kabir Khan was very enthused by the tax exemption in UP. “I am very happy. Now it will reach more people. I think some more states are also considering a tax exemption for Bajrangi Bhaijaan.”

Added the film’s co-producer Amar Butala, “Salman Khan Films is grateful to the Chief Minister Shri Akhilesh Yadav and the Uttar Pradesh government for the kind gesture. We believe Bajrangi Bhaijaan is an important film. And we believe the tax exemption will make it accessible to a larger audience in the State.”
