Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, who had earlier attended the special screening of Saand Ki Aankh, has declared the film tax-free in the capital.

After Uttar Pradesh, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has declared Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Saand Ki Aankh tax-free in the state. The film is one of the big three Diwali releases and clashed at the box office with Akshay Kumar’s multi-starrer comedy Housefull 4 and Rajkummar Rao and Mouni Roy’s Made In China.

Saand Ki Aankh, which got a positive response from the critics, is expected to record an opening of Rs 3-5 crore.

Earlier, in an interview with ANI, the duo dedicated the movie to mothers and said “The movie is dedicated to all the mothers and women as they are our inspiration behind playing this role. I don’t think our mothers have rejoiced even a single moment for themselves. So, it is a tribute to all the mothers.”

The film has been directed by Tushar Hiranandani and co-produced by Anurag Kashyap. Filmmaker Prakash Jha and Vineet Kumar Singh have also played pivotal roles in the film.
