The Bihar cabinet decided to exempt entertainment tax on Bollywood film Airlift starring Akshay Kumar on February 16.
A cabinet meeting took the decision as the film inculcates the feeling of pride and honour for the country among youth, Cabinet Secretariat Department's Principal Secretary Brajesh Mehrotra said.
Directed by Raja Menon, the film is based on the evacuation of over a lakh Indians from a Kuwait under attack during the Gulf War in 1990. (Also Read: Akshay's Airlift Gets 'Superb' Reviews on Twitter, He is 'Overwhelmed')
