MUMBAI: After Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, it is Delhi’s turn to celebrate the spirit of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
On Tuesday evening, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dixit watched Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and immediately granted the film exemption from entertainment tax.
Says a source, “Ms Dixit was visibly moved by the film. She took a call on the tax exemption without hesitation.”
Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra could barely contain his emotions. “What can I say? First Maharashtra, then Madhya Pradesh and now Delhi has granted Milkha a tax exemption. I am humbled by the unanimous acceptance of the spirit of Milkha.”
