Mumbai:  After Maharashtra, Priyanka Chopra-starrer “Mary Kom” has been declared tax-free in Uttar Pradesh. The National Award winning actress has thanked the state’s Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

“Thank u @yadavakhilesh for helping #MaryKom’s story get a bigger reach in UP. The film is officially tax free a week before release. Awesome,” Priyanka tweeted Sunday.

“Mary Kom”, a biopic on the five-time World Champion boxer M.C. Mary Kom, is slated to release on Teacher’s Day Friday.

Last week itself, the movie was declared tax-free in Maharashtra, and Priyanka was joyous.

The movie, co-produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s banner, will mark the directorial debut of Omung Kumar.
