'Bullet Raja' gets Rs.1 crore dole in UP

Lucknow: Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav Monday presented a cheque of Rs.1 crore to the director and producer of Hindi film ‘Bullet Raja’ as it was extensively shot in Uttar Pradesh.

They accepted the cheque of Rs.1 crore given by the state government under its amended film policy of 2001.
