Maharashtra has joined three other states in exempting actor-director Rahul Bose's directorial venture 'Poorna' from entertainment tax.

"After getting tax exemption from Telangana, Karnataka and Delhi; I was fixated on getting tax exemption for 'Poorna' from Maharashtra because this is my home state. My mother was a Maharashtrian and I have lived in Mumbai all my life.

"It's unbelievable, incredible and so fulfilling that we managed to get tax exemption before the film's release," Rahul said in a statement.

The 49-year-old also thanked the Maharashtra government. "This is something that is rare. I would like to thank Government of Maharashtra for the appreciation and the love they have shown for the film. We promise not to let them down with the release," he said.

The film is based on a true story of Poorna Malavath, the youngest girl to climb Mount Everest.

Rahul on Friday took to Twitter, where he shared that it's a matter of pride that 'Poorna' opened with a tax-free status in his "home state". "On our release day, here's the wonderful support we are getting from states across the country: 'Poorna' is tax-free in Maharashtra!" he added.

Featuring Aditi Inamdar, Rahul and Heeba Shah, 'Poorna' hit the screens on Friday.
