The much awaited biopic 'Mary Kom' which is scheduled for release on the 5th of September will now be tax-free in Assam. Tarun Gogoi, the Chief Minister said, "As the movie revolves around boxer Mary Kom, the pride of the northeast and the country as a whole, we have decided to exempt it from entertainment tax".
Before Assam, Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh were the states that also have exempted taxes from this biopic. Priyanka Chopra has been very busy with promotions for this film, despite health issues. This film is one of the most anticipated films of the year and is directed by Omung Kumar.
