Ajay Devgn's Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior has been declared tax free by the Maharashtra Government. This announcement comes days after Maharashtra minister Bala Saheb Thorat had said that the decision to make the film tax free in the state was passed by the cabinet and the announcement will be made soon. The film was already made tax free in Uttar Pradesh and Haryana. The demand of making the film tax free in the state was also echoed by former C.M. Devendra Fadnavis who had written to Uddhav Thackrey to think about making the film tax free as the film brings out the Maratha history and glory for a larger audience.
Soon after the film is declared tax free in Maharashtra, leading man Ajay Devgn thanked CM Uddhav Thackeray for the same. He wrote, "Thank you Uddhav Thackeray ji for declaring #TanhajiTheUnsungWarrior tax-free in the state of Maharashtra."
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is a historical drama based on the life events of Maratha warrior Tanhaji Malusare.
