Aamir Khan to apply for tax exemption for Dangal before release

Aamir Khan is all set for his upcoming film Dangal.  The film which is based on wrestling also deals with women empowerment as its core subject. Realising that it is essential for the film to be seen and heard, Aamir will be seeking entertainment tax exemption for Dangal before its release next month.

Confirming the same to Indian Express, Aamir said, “I believe it’s a film which has the parameters of getting a tax exemption. So I think it falls under that category. But that’s not for me to decide. Ultimately, it is for the state governments in each state to decide that. But we will be applying for tax exemption and we are going to try for it before the release. But it’s a process, it may happen or it may not happen. I can’t predict how long will it take.”

On the censor certificate front, Aamir is hopeful that the film will be certified U by the CBFC as the actor believes kids should also watch Dangal. Aamir said “I think it’s a universal film and our film is a family film. It’s about children and for them. So it’s a film for families. And according to us, it will be a U film.”

Aamir is also sure that pirates won’t be able to play spoilsport and leak Dangal. Said Aamir, “We will try our level best to curb it. So this time too we will try to tackle it.”Earlier in the day, Aamir held a special screening for the media to showcase the behind-the-scenes footage of Dangal. From how he gained weight for looking like an old wrestler to losing it quickly, Aamir’s stunning transformation justified with his perfectionist tag. Speaking about the same, Aamir said, “Nitish wanted me to do the younger version first and then put on weight. But I told him if I do so, then there would be no reason for me to lose fat. So I opted for the older role first.”

Those who have read the script are sure that film will get tax free status. Dangal is going to release on December 23 in theaters.
