Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Sal­man Khan (right) has thanked Ut­tar Pradesh chief min­is­ter Akhilesh Ya­dav and his gov­ern­ment for mak­ing his latest of­fer­ing, Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan, tax-free in the state.

The 49-year-old ac­tor took to mi­cro-blog­ging web­site Twit­ter to thank the Ut­tar Pradesh gov­ern­ment.

“Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan is tax free in UP. We thank the Govt of Ut­tar Pradesh. @ya­davakhilesh (sic),” he tweeted.

The film was made tax-free af­ter the movie’s di­rec­tor Kabir Khan met the CM with the re­quest. Dur­ing the meet­ing, Ya­dav told Kabir that the state of­fers im­mense pos­si­bil­i­ties for film pro­duc­tion, ow­ing to which the state gov­ern­ment has un­veiled an at­trac­tive and con­ve­nient film pol­icy that has at­tracted many a film­maker into shoot- ing in the state.

The state has made many films tax-free in the past — Te­var, Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho, Hamari Ad­huri Ka­hani and the re­cently-re­leased Masaan.

Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan is tax free in UP. We thank the Govt of Ut­tar Pradesh.
