Starring Taapsee Pannu and Pavail Gulati, Thappad has also been declared tax free in Madhya Pradesh for a few months. Earlier on Tuesday, the MP government announced a three-month exemption from the State Goods and Services Tax (SGST) to Taapsee Pannu starrer film Thappad. A top official of the Commercial Tax Department said the film was exempted from SGST in view of its subject and message.

On the other hand, while Thappad had a solo big release on February 28th, it will face competition from already released films- Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan and Vicky Kaushal’s Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship. SMZS is expected to cross the Rs 50 crore mark this weekend as well.
