After finishing censor board formalities, Dhanush said he was excited and thrilled ahead of the release. “#kodi has been censored with ‘U’ certificate. #diwali2016 #kodiparakkudha excited and thrilled,” he tweeted.
Kodi is now eligible for the 30 percent entertainment tax exemption given by the state government. Tamil Nadu government gives tax exemption for Kollywood movies, which bag the ‘U’ certificate and portray Tamil culture. Kaashmora has failed to get the exemption as it has bagged ‘U/A’ certificate. It is not clear whether the makers will approach the revising committee for a ‘U’ certificate, thereby turning eligible for tax exemption.
Both the movies will hit the screens on October 28, on the occasion of the Deepavali festival.
