JAIPUR: After Hrithik Roshan's 'Super 30', based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar, was made tax-free in Bihar, now Rajasthan government has followed suit.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot took to Twitter to make the announcement.

"'Super 30', based on the real story of Anand Kumar, is an inspiring film of recent times. It is an excellent example of exceptional will power and determination, that despite all odds, success is achievable," Gehlot tweeted

Adding, "We must take inspiration from such films and imbibe the value of 'excellence in education' in the youth of our society today. I hereby declare this film tax-free in the state of Rajasthan."

In Rajasthan, Kota - a hub of coaching centres for engineering - is witnessing a huge footfall of students for the movie, while in Udaipur over 700 students have booked INOX multiplex to watch it.

Hrithik, who plays the role of Anand Kumar, thanked the CM on Twitter.

Overwhelmed with the response, the actor said, "Students in school uniforms coming to cinemas on a Sunday, was big surprise for me. Such sights are not just delightful, but also inspiring for the performers and creators of a movie. I am sure, the entire team of Super 30 would feel blessed with this affection."

"Good movies with a good message leave a lasting impression on the minds of the audiences. We hope the story will inspire both students as well as teachers," said Saurabh Varma, Chief Marketing Officer, INOX Leisure Ltd.
