One more good news for Rajini fans- the upcoming
Super Star starrer Sivaji gets a complete
tax waiver. This comes in the wake of Tamil
Nadu government announcing some time back
that (Tamil) films with Tamil titles will
be given entertainment tax rebate. This declaration
resulted in almost all the films turning out
in chaste Tamil titles and enjoying the benefit
of tax waiver too.
Meanwhile there was a debate in legislative assembly about
the ‘Tamilness’ of the name Sivaji and members
were questioning if this film was eligible to get a concession
on tax. Producer of Sivaji had even approached the concerned
department wondering if they would lose such benefit.
After the necessary assurance from them AVM had confirmed
Meanwhile the film was submitted to the controller of
commercial tax department for tax rebate after procuring
the Censor board approval. It has been certified that
Sivaji being a proper noun, it is eligible for total tax
waiver. On similar grounds Maddy-Bhavana starrer Arya
is also likely to get this benefit.
