Bhopal: The Aamir Khan-starrer “Dangal” has been declared tax-free in Madhya Pradesh and the sports drama’s success has prompted the State Government to announce it will set up an academy to promote wrestling. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today made the twin announcements.
After watching the sports biopic, based on the life of Haryana wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, with his wife Sadhna in a cinema hall here last night, Chouhan tweeted “MP Government has decided to give tax-free status to Aamir Khan’s wrestling based movie `Dangal’.
In another tweet, he said, “To promote wrestling an academy will be set up in Madhya Pradesh.” This is the fourth film to be declared tax-free in the State in recent times. Other movies to enjoy this status since August 2014 were “Jai Gangaajal”, “Neerja” and “Mardaani”.
