Even before its release, Hamari Adhuri Kahani starring Emraan Hashmi, Vidya Balan and Rajkummar Rao has achieved a feat that many films manage to attain after weeks of release. The state of Madhya Pradesh today declared that the Mohit Suri directorial will be tax free.
Recently, Vidya Balan and Mohit Suri paid a visit to the state to meet the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh and now according to an official statement, the government has exempted Hamari Adhuri Kahani from entertainment tax. What seems to be a moment of rejoice for the cast and crew of the film, however has turned out to be controversy, soon after the decision was made.
From what we hear, many Congress officials are upset over this fact and have apparently claimed that the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh is star-struck. Moreover, it is being said that they are accusing the government of taking such a hasty decision without reviewing the content of the film, considering that only films with historical, moral or ethical value to the society fall under the category of exemption and are miffed over the fact that this romantic drama has been given a tax exemption despite it being a complete commercial film.
Produced by Fox Star Studios, Hamari Adhuri Kahani is slated to release on June 12, 2015.
