Nairobi, 20 Sept 2016: Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar is extremely proud of “Pink” and wants the film to be exempt from entertainment tax.
“We want it to be tax-free. People have been asking us to make it tax-free. I think we are on the verge of making it tax-free,” Sircar said at a press conference.
This contemporary youth-centric film conveys a strong, socially-relevant message about the choices young women of today make and about respecting those.

Narrated in a linear manner, the simply presented film, essentially a courtroom drama, is powerful because of its dialogues and performances.
Sircar, who is known for his content-driven films, says he would make stories only when there is some lesson to be learnt.

“People ask me ‘why don’t you do potboilers?’ But in school, I learnt only one thing — that there has to be some moral to the story. And if there is no moral, there is no point in making a film.
