If there’s one person who is having a whale of a time in 2014, then, it’s none other than the ‘literal queen’ Rani Mukerji. While on one hand, she got married this year, on the other hand, her latest movie Mardaani is being received with rave reviews from everyone alike.
If that wasn’t enough, now the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh has decided to make film tax free. After he saw the film, he not only applauded the power packed performance of Rani, but also mentioned how the film focused on the worst social evil of human trafficking which needs to be eliminated. He also felt that it was very important for this film to have a widened reach and so making it tax free would be extremely beneficial. Speaking about the film, he tweeted ‘After a very long time went along with family to watch a movie. Mardaani turned out to be soul stirring saga highlighting a societal evil. I congratulate Rani Mukherjee for a wonderful and powerful performance in Mardaani. Aditya Chopra has done well to produce this movie. Trafficking of young girls and women is worst evil which needs to be eliminated. Mardaani has brought it into focus. We will give ‘tax free’ status to Mardaani in Madhya Pradesh considering the bold social message conveyed by it.
Needless to say that, the makers of Mardaani were very happy when they got to know about this and they are hoping that others also see it in the same way and that the film gets a similar tax free status elsewhere.
