Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which entered the 100 crore club in its opening weekend itself, was made tax-free after the movie’s director Kabir Khan met the Chief Minister with the request.
During the meeting, Akhilesh 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, which has attracted many filmmakers into shooting in the state.
