Bajirao Mastani has swept all the top honours this year at every award show. And now the film has been made tax free in Uttar Pradesh, a government spokesman said on Tuesday. According to a media portal, as per the government spokesman, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and his family watched the movie on Sunday night and was "impressed" by the movie directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
In 16th century India, undefeated warrior Bajirao was bestowed with the title of Prime Minister and became the greatest weapon of his Empire. The film was praised by the critics and has done well at the box office.
Ranveer Singh who had essayed the role of Bajirao, had performed at the Saifai Mahotsava earlier this year and requested Akhilesh to "find time" to watch the flick, a close aide of Yadav told the media portal.
