Munnabhai 2: Tax-free in Delhi

September 11, 2006 19:27 IST

Rajkumar Hirani's new film, Lage Raho Munnabhai, has been made tax-free in New Delhi.

The Delhi government has decided to make the Sanjay Dutt-Arshad Warsi-starrer tax-free because it promotes the Gandhian ideals of truth and non-violence, an official spokesman told PTI.

"The movie will be tax free with immediate effect," he said.

The film, which released on September 1, is a sequel to the very successful Munnabhai MBBS that released in 2003.

Both films have been directed by Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra.

The movie is being shown in theatres as the country commemorates 100 years of Satyagraha movement launched by Mahatma Gandhi in South Africa.
