John Abraham's second production venture, "Madras Cafe" is turning into a box office hit with revenue continuing to flow in.
The political thriller featuring John and Nargis Fakri has reportedly earned more than the production cost, raking in ₹31 crore within six days of its release.
"#MadrasCafe Fri 5.23 cr, Sat 7.18 cr, Sun 8.60 cr, Mon 3.05 cr, Tue 3.14 cr, Wed 3.80 cr. Total: ₹31 cr nett. Excellent!" trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The film, which was released in limited screens, is doing much better than "Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara".
Now, the makers of the film are planning to make "Madras Cafe" a tax free film considering its theme.
"Madras Cafe opens a very important chapter in the history of India. While it was promoted as a film that was based in Sri Lanka, the end result has shown that at the core of it, it is about Rajiv Gandhi assassination. Also, it makes a statement against violence and terrorism of any kind. Since it involves more than just subtle messaging around, the film deserves to go Tax Free," Bollywood Hungama quoted a source attached to the film as saying.
If everything goes fine, this will be the second film after "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" to be tax free.
John also confirmed the news of making his film tax free. "Yes, I have been advised to do this. I hope there are positive developments around this," the actor said.
