777 Charlie exempted of SGST all across Karnataka

Looks like the aura of 777 Charlie has spread wider as the Karnataka government declares the film tax-free. In an attempt to help the film's essence and significant message reach a larger audience in its home state, the officials chose to exempt the film from SGST or State Goods or Service Tax. The Finance Department of the Basavaraj Bommai administration has issued an order which states that the film will be exempt from the tax for a period of six months, starting June 19.

Karnataka chief minister Basavaraj Bommai is said to have made the decision regarding tax exemption following a petition made by Rakshit Shetty, the producer of 777 Charlie. Shetty, who also stars as the film's lead, stated that his film creates awareness about the ill effects of inbreeding among dogs and also highlights the nuances of animal violence. The team of 777 Charlie has also been supporting the animal adoption cause through the #AdoptDontShop trend.

C.M Bommai and a few other top officials of the current government were part of a recent special screening of 777 Charlie. The film, essentially for its endearing man-dog relationship, resonated strongly with the chief minister who was later seen breaking into tears while speaking to the media. He added that the film reminded him of his own pet dog Sunny whom he lost only weeks before turning chief minister. The state government now plans on launching a special programme for the adoption and care of stray dogs. 

777 Charlie released worldwide on June 10 to a tremendous response as the film struck a chord with many pet lovers. The film has collected close to Rs. 50 crores in terms of nett profits in its nine-day, and the latest tax exemption move is likely to further galvanize its efforts. The film was simultaneously released in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam and received positive reviews.
