Savita Raj Hiremath, the producer of Jhund took to Facebook to raise a query about the criteria for tax exemption on films. This comes after a number of states in the country decided to exempt tax for The Kashmir Files, which was released on March 11. She wrote, "I recently watched (The)Kashmir files and as the story of  Kashmiri Pandits exodus it's heartbreaking and is a story that needed to be told. It is a good voice for Kashmiri Pandits..!! But as the producer of JHUND, I am perplexed. After all, Jhund is also an important film and has a story and a Big Message that has received tremendous acclaim and word of mouth from (the) audience."

She then added, "So I want to find out what's the criterion on which govt selects a film to support it so strongly by making tax free, endorsing it through social media and asking Offices to showcase the film or give half-day holiday to its employees."

Finally, Savita stated, "After all Jhund also has a subject that is so crucial to our country's growth. Jhund is not just talking about the disparity between caste and economic disparity but also shows a way to make the lower strata of society find their success story.

Jhund directed by Nagraj Manjule has received a lukewarm response at the box office. The film starring Amitabh Bachchan, however, was appreciated by the critics.
