The makers of Rajukumar Hirani’s PK, which opened to glowing reviews and immense love from all quarters, were very keen that the film gets a very wide reach. Not every film is considered for tax exemption, but the makers of this film have applied for it considering the social message that it has. Aamir Khan, Raju Hirani and Vinod Chopra have applied recently to make PK tax free in all the states of India.
Said an insider, “Rajkumar Hirani has the skill of putting across a social message in the most entertaining way as you are only laughing throughout the film and you only realize the message later. He doesn’t only have a 100% success rate with his films but all his films have a strong social relevance. Everyone who has seen this film has loved it. Top rank police officials who watched the film recently gave it critical acclaim and also feel it is an important film and is a must watch for all families.
Even Sachin Tendulkar called it the best film of Aamir Khan, while others in the industry too can’t stop raving about it.
When contacted Vinod Chopra, he shared, “PK is a very relevant film in today’s times. While it’s an entertainer, it also has a strong social message. A message that needs to reach the whole country. That’s why we have applied for the tax exemption.”
