‘Tax exemption lets people enjoy films’
After the government of Rajasthan gave the film Hindi Medium a tax-free status, director Saket Chaudhary (left) says that he is glad this step will enable more people to watch it.
“Hindi Medium has touched and entertained so Bhosle many people and this tax-free status is a chance for a lot more people to enjoy the film again,” said Chaudhary in a statement.
The movie had already got tax exemption in states such as Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Delhi. And now that it has been made tax-free in lead actor Irrfan’s home state, this makes it more special for the team.
The film, which also features Saba Qamar, grew in popularity on word of mouth, generating a profit for the makers, who had made it on a budget of `22 crore.
