The Bollywood heroine Sonum Kapoor thanked the chief minister of Chattisgarh Raman Singh for exempting the movie ‘Neerja’ from entertainment tax. She tweeted that she was very happy at the CM’s gesture.
The movie was made on air hostess Neerja Bhanoth who lost her life, alerting the security forces against the hijackers in the plane Pan Am, hijacked in Karachi in 1986. The hijackers shot her dead for alerting the security men. Many state governments exempted this hit movie from entertainment tax
