Ajay Devgn's and Saif Ali Khan's much-awaited Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, since the first day of its release, created a havoc at the box-office. With footfalls for the film increasing in theatres, the period drama has proven to be a blockbuster. Now, as the visual spectacle is minting crores of money per minute at the box-office, the Uttar Pradesh government and the state's Chief Minister-Yogi Adityanath, pronounced it as tax-free. On Tuesday, on his official Twitter account, the BJP minister announced the news and delighted fans of the actors present in the film.
Ajay, who plays the titular role in Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, soon after it was declared tax-free in Uttar Pradesh, thanked Yogi Adityanath on Twitter with a heartfelt note. "Thank you Shri Yogi Adityanathji for making #TanhajiTheUnsungWarrior Tax-Free in Uttar Pradesh. I would also be delighted Sir if you watched our film," Ajay wrote.
