Maharashtra makes Vivekananda biopic tax-free

Mumbai, Aug 25 : After Gujarat and West Bengal, the film-'The Light: Swami Vivekananda' has been declared tax-free by the Maharashtra government as well.


The film is a biopic on the legendary monk Swami Vivekananda.

The tax exemption has been granted as the film's main objective is to promote the teachings of Swami Vivekananda.

Producer J. Misra, deeply influenced by Vivekananda's ideologies, made this film to pay a tribute to him on his 150th birth anniversary.

Earlier, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi attended a special screening of the film with his cabinet minister and was all praises about the film. He was first to grant tax exemption to the biopic.

Talking about being granted tax-exemption in three major states, Misra said, "My sole motive behind making this film is to make it reach to people. And by being granted tax-exemption, I hope the film reaches to a larger audience."

Produced by TriColour Productions Pvt. Ltd., 'The Light: Swami Vivekanand' is in cinemas now.
