The film Mary Kom has been in the spotlight ever since
the first look was launched. The trailer of Priyanka Chopra's
Mary Kom received an overwhelming response from the
industry and the general public.
Confirming the news says producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali's
spokesperson, "Yes, Mary Kom has been declared tax-free by
the government. The biopic is a tribute to the Indian icon, Mary
Kom's life and hence the tax-free status will encourage audiences
to recognise and support the spirit of the movie."
Meanwhile, actress Priyanka Chopra who will be seen in the shoes
of Mary Kom says, "It's wonderful news. We have a compelling story
to tell of a strong, determined woman who has made the nation
proud. We can only hope that this will provide an impetus for more
people to come to watch this story and be inspired. It's our
tribute to all the unsung sports people who give so much to see the
Indian flag flying high."
The film Mary Kom has been directed by Omung Kumar and
is slated to release on September 5th.
