Meanwhile, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior has been declared tax-free in Uttar Pradesh. Reacting to this, Ajay Devgn took to his Twitter page to thank UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and wrote, "Thank you Shri Yogi Adityanathji for making #TanhajiTheUnsungWarrior Tax-Free in Uttar Pradesh. I would also be delighted Sir if you watched our film @myogiadityanath#TanhajiUnitesIndia."
Maharashtra Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat on Monday spoke about making Tanhaji tax-free in the state. He told reporters, "Earlier, the Revenue ministry used to take a decision on making a movie tax-free, but now the tax has been subsumed in the GST. Still, I will personally take up the issue with CM Uddhav Thackeray."
The Ajay Devgn starrer tells the story of Maratha warrior Tanhaji Malusure who was the military leader of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Tanhaji also stars Saif Ali Khan and Kajol.
