"The UP government has made our film tax free because the core theme of our film passionately raises the issue of women's empowerment," Mahesh Bhatt, who has written the love story, said in a statement.
"Hamari Adhuri Kahani", which hit the screens on June 12, has been produced by Vishesh Films, and marketed and distributed by Fox Star Studios.
The film has so far made Rs.22.47 crore in India and $1.2 million overseas.
