It seems that Akshay Kumar starrer Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is in for a bit of a tax windfall. According to reports, the Indian government has decided to make it tax free in all BJP run states. A source was quoted thus in a leading daily: “The Government has decided to implement an entertainment tax exemption in all BJP-run states. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is not merely a film, but also a tool for social reform. And, this film deserves to be seen by all. Therefore, it deserves to be made tax free.”
The film sends a powerful message against open defecation, which is one of the pillars of PM Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat campaign.
