The biopic on India’s five time world champion boxer Mary Kom has been declared tax free in Maharashtra
The girl power seems to be on a rise in Bollywood. With films like Queen, Bobby Jasoos and Mardaani doing good business at box office, the next big film with female lead, Priyanka Chopra’s Mary Kom, is predicted to rule the box office. Well, its just not the box office collections of these female oriented films that are making heads turn.
After Rani Mukerji’s hard hitting cop flick Mardaani was made tax free in Uttar Pradesh, it’s now Exotic babe’s Mary Kom’s turn to celebrate as the biopic on boxer MC Mary Kom has been declared tax free in Maharashtra. While Mardaani was relieved from tax due to its theme of women’s fight against serious social evils like crimes and sexual offences against women, many believe that a film on life of India’s five time world champion boxer, MC Mary Kom, who had done India proud in international arena deserves tax exemption.
A source tells us that it is the brave attempt from Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Omung Kumar to immortalise a sports hero like Mary Kom, that has got the tax exemption from Maharashta government. While the world waits for September 5 to arrive to catch Priyanka in kick ass avatar, the Mary Kom team can rejoice on its newly attained tax free status.
