In streak of tax-free movies like 'Chak De India', 'Rang De Basanti', 'Taare Zameen Par' and the latest biopic 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', there's political-thriller 'Madras Cafe', which might join the series. The movie delivers social and political issues, therefore the makers are convincing government to make it tax-free, so that it could reach large masses.

A source close to the movie said that the film 'Madras Cafe' starring John Abraham and Nargis Fakhri, opens a new chapter of Indian history, the assassination of former Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi. Also it makes the statement against violence and terrorism, therefore the film deserves a tax free tag.

Taking in note of opening of the film, the decision would be taken by the director Shoojit Sircar and John Abraham, whether to make it tax-free or not. Says the filmmaker, that 'Madras Cafe' opening shows that audience have perceived it well. The word-of-mouth publicity is pulling more and more crowd to the theater. A film like this, should reach maximum number of people and if John Abraham is requesting for the tax-free status, then he is doing it exactly right.

Makers have applied for the tax-free status in many states, Maharashtra and Delhi being the first one. Confirming the news John Abraham said that he has applied for the film being tax-free and hopes to get positive development.
