‘Drishyam’ tax free in UP, Ajay thanks UP Chief Minister

Actor Ajay Devgn has thanked Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav for making his latest film ‘Drishyam’ tax free in the state.

“Thanks to UP Govt and Akhilesh Yadav for making Drishyam tax free. One more reason for you all to watch the film” Ajay tweeted.

Under Akhilesh Yadav, Uttar Pradesh has awarded tax free status to quite a few films in recent times. Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Arjun Kapor’s Tevar, Emraan Hashmi’s Hamari Adhuri Kahani and Aamir Khan’s PK were some films that were exempted from entertainment tax.

Drishyam has collected a little more than 50 crore in 10 days at the box office.



  • Drishyam is an amazing movie. The plot,character,script everything is perfect. It is a perfect edge of the seat thriller. It keeps you hooked to your seats. It is the best movie of the year.

    Top 4 films of this year-

    1) Drishyam: Ajay Devgn shows what an actor he is if he gets a good script. Plot has substance and thrilling storyline. Tabu’s performance is as worthy as gold.
    Supporting cast is fantastic.


    2) Baby/Bajrangi Bhaijaan

    Neeraj pandey makes a brave film on the lines of terrorism. Akshay Kumar delivers one of his performance in recent years. It keeps you hooked to the screens.

    Bajrangi Bhaijaan-

    Salman Khan’s best film and best performance in recent 4-5 years.
    Nawaz is simply brilliant. The girl fits the bill.
    Kabir Khan is one of the best directors now.
    Bajrangi Bhaijaan is simple film but made extra-ordinary due to performances.
    3.5*/5* (Must watch)

    4) TWMR

    Kangana’s brilliant two-some act and Anand Rai’s honest direction makes this film different from a Dharma’s Candy floss no-brainer.
    Flawed but continuously entertaining.

    Worst films:

    1) Tevar- 0/5
    2) Roy-0/5
    3) mr x
    4) hawaizada
    5) bombay velvet/DDD

  • @indicine… That’s an old story guys. It’s 59.12 crores as of yesterday. Already a winner in every aspect…just unfortunate it’s release date and d unfamiliar genre of d movie cldnt Garner much collection but who cares? Ajay has nothing to prove again. We all know what he can do and what he has done and with drishyam he has earned much more respect even from his haters. Anys thanks for d tax free up chief minister appreciated.

  • I wonder what was so special about tevar that it was awarded tax free status… other films were more or less deserving specially drishyam,pk and bhaijaan…

  • No offence to Drishyam or Ajay fans..
    But this Akhilesh yadav is such a big moron that he declares tax free status so easily for so many films.There wasn’t any social message in Drishyam to offer the public but still it got tax exemption.This idiot CM wants good relations with film stars and that’s his only motive behind declaring so many films as tax free in UP.
    While the common people keep on paying toll taxes for years even after the profit has been made by the government.

  • Watched Drishyam the previous day..it’s just too good.One of the best Bollywood thrillers to have come in recent times.Never for a second could you predict what will happen next.Not concerned about its business since such movies don’t come too often.It will be remembered for decades to come

  • Hamari Adhuri Kahaani and Tevar ko tax free status?
    PK, BB aur Drishyam ka toh samajh aata hai, par HAK aur Tevar ko bhi? WTF!
    Now I get it, Akhilesh Yadav has a liking for chubby actresses like Sonakshi and Vidya Balan. ?

  • No doubt has already placed his names amongst the legends in Bollywood. The real dark horse of bollywood. Love ajay devgan fans New profile photo on Facebook uploaded yesterday So dashing and handsome. Keep on rocking Singham!!

  • Akhilesh Yadav has a habit of making movies tax free . But this time he is absolutely correct and a movie like Drishyam deserves to tax free . Drishyam is a brilliant movie and one of the Best movie of 2015 . It at least deserves the verdict of Above Average or Semi Hit . I wish to see many more outstanding performances and movies from Ajay in future . Drishyam Rocks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • @babaji…well if that’s true it’s not fair. Ideally tolls are usually made to recover the actual road construction costs. So once it’s recovered ideally d tolls have to be removed. Sad it’s still happening over there.

  • Drishyam deserves to be tax free. Well done Akhilesh yadav.

    @mataji ki paylagu:
    If movies like BB, Drishyam etc don’t get tax free status then which movies deserve so??? Rakeshji’s cartoon series or joker , k786, boss etc????

  • Drishyam has proven why Ajay is the best actor in this type of film.My fav films this year

  • @saksham, currently remuneration of Aamir, Salman & SRK are about 60 crore per film or profit share. UTV signed Hrithik for 50 crore for Mohenjodaro. Ranbir was signed for 32 crore for Bombay Velvet after the success of YJHD. Akshay Kumar gets 20-25 crore per film & Ajay gets about 20 crore. For some films stars make fee cuts.

  • Best Movies of the year till now—
    1. Bajrangi Bhaijaan,
    2. Baby,
    3. Piku,
    4. Gabbar Is Back,
    5. Badlapur,
    6. NH 10,
