Hindi Medium, released in the theatres across India today, got tax exemption in Maharashtra and Gujarat. Actor Irrfan Khan has thanked Chief Ministers of Gujarat and Maharashtra, Vijay Rupani and Devendra Fadnavis respectively, for the decision.
Hindi Medium is a social drama about a couple from Chandni Chowk, who aspires to give their daughter the best education and thus become part of the elite of Delhi. The movie showcases some burning issues of the present education system and class struggle.
The actor took to Twitter to share the news about the tax exemption. He thanked both the CMs -- Vijay Rupani and Devendra Fadnavis-- for their support.

Along with the film unit, Irrfan Khan has recently met both Vijay Rupani and Devendra Fadnavis at their offices and requested them to make Hindi Medium tax free. A post on the Twitter page of CMO Gujarat read: "Famous Bollywood actor @irrfank paid courtesy visit to GujCM at Gandhinagar who wished a great success to his upcoming film @HindiMediumfilm."
