MUMBAI: Madras Cafe is sighting a tax free status
for itself, after Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
Sources reveal that the movie opened a very important
chapter in the history of India. While it was promoted
as a film that was based in Sri Lanka, but at the end
it was all about Rajiv Gandhi's assassination.
The source further goes on to clarify that it is against
violence and terrorism of any kind. Since it involves
more than just subtle messaging around, the film deserves
to go tax free.
The lead actor of the film John Abraham and director
Shoojit Sircar, who have collaborated on the film wanted
to see how the film will be received, before creating
a case for considering tax exemption.
A fellow filmmaker who does not wish to be named wishes
that the film should be seen by maximum number of people
and if John is contemplating a tax free status, he is
very much right in his thought.
Last heard, a case study was being readied for submission
to various authorities in different states. To begin
with, Maharashtra and Delhi are under consideration
and other cities are expected to follow soon.
