Mary Kom gets tax exemption in Assam

After Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh, the Assam government has also  announced exemption of entertainment tax on ‘Mary Kom’, a biopic on boxing champion Mary Kom who hails from Manipur.

“As the movie revolves around boxer Mary Kom, the pride of the northeast and the country as a whole, we have decided to exempt it from entertainment tax,” Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi told reporters in a statement.

Directed by Omung Kumar, Mary Kom releases in theatres on Sep 5. The film stars Priyanka Chopra in the lead.

  • hearing grt reviews cant wait to watch it on sunday….reviews says priyanka nailed it dis tym again….best actress we have

  • Again the movie will have hny trailer.
    So like singham returns this movie will definitely earn bcoz of HNY TRAILER.
    Lov ya srk.

    80% earning bcoz of srk. Wow

  • Its looks an over hyped movie. It shouldn’t be compared with classics like Paan Singh Tomar and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag just bcoz its a biopic.
    As far as the best actress of the year is concerned, they are:
    Kangana for Queen
    Parineeti for HTP
    Alia for Highway
    Rani for Mardaani
    Madhuri for Dedh Ishqiaan
    Alia for HSKD.

    Expecting Deepika to be good in Finding Fanny and Anushka in PK.

  • Mary com is tax free in many states so we hope our kings movie hny will be tax free in India coz it has Indiawaale song

  • Good to hear that…….hope the movie turns out to be good…..I want a biopic on major dhyanchand as well…..why no body is attempting it….have heard so many rumours about it…but just nothing actually in making…….

  • Salmaan khan is charity man or human being then modi is god of charity both are belonging from same personality one killed 5 poor people another one 1000 people so prode moment for all salmaan khan fan enjoying guys let’s celebrate becoz he is best human being

  • @indicine isn’t mary kom was tax exempted in u.p also? but ticket prices are not reduced when i checked on bookmyshow.

  • This year lots of women centric movies in bolly town. Good for the industry. Anyhow, Asam is a very small teritory. Dont think it will make much difference in total tally. But mary Kom has to sustain good.
