‘Samrat Prithviraj’, which is all set to release in theatres countrywide on June 3, depicts the life of legendary warrior king Prithviraj Chauhan, played by Akshay Kumar.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath attended a special screening of the period action drama “Samrat Prithviraj” with his cabinet colleagues on Thursday and declared the movie tax-free in the state. Taking a jibe at the BJP government, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav said that the film is even better if seen with a ticket.
“The film looks even better if viewed from the back and even with a ticket instead of free because it does not harm the revenue of the state,” Mr Yadav said on Twitter
The screening of the movie was held at Lok Bhawan in Lucknow, and Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, female lead Manushi Chillar and director Chandra Prakash Dwivedi were in attendance.
