`Neerja` now tax free in Maharashtra

New Delhi : Makers of the Sonam Kapoor starrer ‘Neerja’ wanted the film to be tagged as tax free and seems like the Maharashtra government just gave them what they wanted.

The 30-year-old actress recently took to her Twitter handle and announced the news by writing, “A big Thank You to the Government of Maharashtra for making #Neerja tax free with immediate effect. Humbled.”

Previously, the director of the flick Ram Madhvani said in a statement that they would very much like that the film be made tax free so that stories like ‘Neerja’ can reach to maximum people and more people can remember her.

‘ Neerja’ narrates the story of a Pan Am purser, who was shot while saving passengers from terrorists on board a hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 on 5 September 1986. (ANI)
