Dangal Tax Free in Uttar Pradesh

The Akhilesh Yadav-led Uttar Pradesh government has decided to give tax free status to Aamir Khan’s upcoming film ‘Dangal’, which is based on the life of Mahavir Singh Phogat.

The tax exemption in a big state like Uttar Pradesh will give the business of the film a significant boost in the crucial first week at the domestic box office.

Other states, especially Haryana where the Phogat family hail from, are likely to follow UP and award ‘tax free’ status to the film in the next few days.

The earlier a film gets tax exemption the better, because on an average, more than 60-65% of business is generated in the first week at the box office.

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal releases in theatres on December 23.



  • indicine hate for akki …is more than his love for srkand hrithik …by the way tell me one thing indicine darr belongs to whomsunny deol or srk….please I really want to know …..as srk was new comer back then 1992 1993…and he also played villian in that movie…Akki has more screen presence than rajni in 2.0….rajni following in hindi circuit is dull……you just removed akki name from 2.0 he is playing parallel lead to rajni…his character has negative shades same like srk in darr and ritesh in EV…….

  • why aamir is not going on any tv shows interviews etc ??? it will help in creating super hype. aamir is only actor which promotes films in unique way this film is check of starpower of aamir as no big director,actress etc. btw after sultan waiting for dangal eagerly. it will be fantastic for sure. sultan & dangal will be two movies which will balance bo collection of 2016.

  • Target audience for this movie is different and limited my it should not cross 300 cr . Because of the content and target audience
    But it did I can easily say Aamir is the no1 hero in India today

    Without any doubt
    No argument no discussion please after that
    No srk no shaman no1
    Numbers will talk only

    First one to cross 100cr
    First one to cross 200 cr
    First one to cross 300cr
    Might be first one to cross 400cr too

  • Only Aamir can break his own records. The ISI mark of Hindi cinema is an AK47 indeed. 350 crores will be demolished.

  • No Buzz about Dangal in Nepal. I respect Amir sir a lot but the fact is majority of people are unaware of this film here.However, I think this movie will be a Blockbuster like Sultan.

  • @vishal
    Totally agree with you man
    This tax exemption should be given to common man but here it is going in the pocket of self proclaimed saint
    Will ticket prices now come down??
    I remember the ticket prices of pk
    Highest of all time till now
    Biggest hypocrite

  • Foolish politician as if they are going to pay the tax exempted from his own pocket. This will create a loss to the state

  • aamir always give his his contribution in redefining cinema. salman & aamir both are making some hatke movies while big banners of bollywood trying their hands in romcom or confuse relationship bases. bollywood should evolve with such movies.
