MUMBAI: National Award winning actress Priyanka Chopra's much-awaited movie Mary Kom has been declared tax free in Maharashtra a week before its scheduled release date.

"Yay! #MaryKom declared tax free in Maharashtra a week before release! Amazing!! #Sept5," Priyanka posted on Twitter.

The movie is a biopic on the five-time World Champion boxer Mary Kom and is slated to release on Teacher's Day 5 September. It has been produced by filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and directed by Omung Kumar.

The biopic on Mary Kom has been in the limelight ever since the first look was launched. The trailer received an overwhelming response and has recently received ?U? certificate from the censor board.

The biopic narrates the journey of Mary Kom who gave up her sporting career when it was at its peak to enjoy the pleasures of motherhood. But after giving birth to two children, she made her comeback in the ring and went on to make history.

Feeling ecstatic about the news, Chopra said, ?It is wonderful news. We have a compelling story to tell of a strong, determined woman who has made the nation proud. It is our tribute to all the unsung sports people who give so much to see the Indian flag flying high. If this can act as a catalyst of hope for them, then it?s something we can all be proud of.?

?We are grateful to Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat and government of Maharashtra for lending their support to the film. This exemption right from release day will allow large segments of society to experience the spirit of magnificent Mary,? said Viacom18 Motion Pictures COO Ajit Andhare.

While Bhansali?s spokesperson said that the tax free status will encourage audience to recognise and support the spirit of the film.

Recently, various state governments granted tax exemption to Rani Mukherji starrer Mardaani based on the issue of child trafficking in India.
