New Delhi, News24 Bureau, July 20: Hrithik Roshan, who is basking in the success of his recent release 'Super 30' thanked CM Yogi Adityanath for making his film tax-free in Uttar Pradesh. After Bihar and Rajasthan, 'Super 30' has been made tax-free in Uttar Pradesh.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday announced to make the movie tax-free.
Earlier, Hrithik and Mrunal starrer 'Super 30' was declared tax free in Rajasthan. Calling the film an "inspiration" and an "excellent example of exceptional willpower and determination," Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot announced that the film will be made tax-free in the state.
"We must take inspiration from such films and imbibe the value of 'excellence in education' in the youth of our society today. I hereby declare this film tax-free in the state of #Rajasthan. #Super30," Gehlot tweeted.
'Super 30' was earlier made tax free in Bihar. The Bihar government had announced that 'Super 30', based on the life of Patna-based Mathematics teacher Anand Kumar is tax-free in the state. The film was released on July 12.
An announcement to this effect was made by Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, who also holds the Finance portfolio.
The announcement came a few days after Sushil Modi had gone to a city theatre along with his wife to watch the movie on the very day of its release and lavished praise on the biopic, which has been directed by National Award winner Vikas Bahl.
The deputy chief minister was asked by journalists, when he emerged from the cinema hall after enjoying the movie on Friday, as to whether he would consider exempting the biopic from taxes in view of the strong social message it carries.
"We will look into the matter", he had then replied.
'Super 30' is helmed by Vikas Bahl and based on the life of Bihar-based mathematician Anand Kumar.
