Will CM's 'Mahanati' decision go unquestioned?
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has recently felicitated the 'Mahanati' team. “Congratulated and felicitated the team for the tremendous work they put in to make such a beautiful movie," the CM said, also adding that Savitri will always be remembered as much as NTR.
Call it potentially controversial or otherwise, Naidu announced tax exemption for the film in Andhra Pradesh. Can this escape questioning?
When 'Gautamiputra Satakarni' was made tax-free, director Gunasekhar, while welcoming the decision of the AP govt, dissented the fact that 'Rudrama Devi' didn't get a similar exemption. Gunasekhar was right. Does 'Mahanati' deserve tax exemption more than 'RD'? That's the question now.
