Yesterday Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who attended a special screening of period action drama ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ with his cabinet colleagues, had declared the movie tax-free in the state. The screening of the movie was held at Lok Bhawan, and Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, female lead Manushi Chhillar and director Chandra Prakash Dwivedi were in attendance. “I announce that the movie will be tax-free in the state,” the chief minister said.
Speaking about the film, Akshay Kumar says, “Samrat Prithviraj is a very important film in my career. It is my legacy project because I’m getting to honour the legendary Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan. I’m fortunate that I’m getting to bring his heroism and life on screen. I hope this film inspires many to lead their life with strong values and get the courage to stand up against any and every evil. Samrat Prithviraj, to me, is a rare project.”
