A high ranking representative of the Commercial Tax Department said the film was absolved from SGST in perspective regarding its matter and message. Single-screen films and multiplexes have been asked not to gather SGST on tickets of the film, the authority said. At present, film tickets convey 18% GST – SGST and Central Goods and Services Tax at 9% each.
In the film, Pannu plays an upper-working class instructed lady who is compelled to proceed in her marriage significantly after her better half slaps her. The film has gotten rave surveys from film pundits. The Hindustan Times survey read, “An amazing and effective film, Thappad drives you mad and awkward, and, simultaneously, it makes you question the ordinary sexism that you energetically ‘conform to, in actuality.”
Pannu was among individuals from the film organization who had censured police crackdown on understudies of Jamia Milia while blaming the administration for attempting to smother the voices of dispute against the Citizenship Amendment Act.
As of late, Deepika Padukone’s Chhapaak was pronounced tax-exempt in Madhya Pradesh even as BJP supporters required a blacklist of the film over the entertainer’s help for the understudies of Jawaharlal Nehru University who were assaulted by veiled goons.
