"There is a procedure, which the production needs to follow. According to us, the film qualifies that," the 39-year-old said here Wednesday on the sets of "Dance India Dance Super Moms".
"We don't apply for every film, but (applying) for this film because we want it to reach to those for whom ticket prices are high and who wait for it to come on TV. So, they will also get to see it in the current atmosphere," added the actor.
Farhan plays the title role in "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag", a biopic on Olympian athlete Milkha Singh. The film, which came out July 12, has reportedly earned over Rs.40 crore.
Farhan and the film's director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra met Maharashtra Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat to seek tax exemption for the film Wednesday.
Making the film tax-free will augment the footfall in theatres, feels Farhan.
"A lot of schools, which want to show the film to the students, are also calling us. So, if the film is tax-free for them, it will be beneficial. Besides, a percentage of the collection of the film also goes to Milkha Singh's foundation and it will also benefit," he said.
