"A call was received from Aamir Khan Productions about depositing the 'lagaan'. The permission was granted, although the authorisation letter has not been submitted," said Sub-Divisional Magistrate (Shahabad), Ashok Shukla.

However, till September this year, rent of Rs 118.20 payable by Khan, Rs 606 (sister Nikhat) and Rs 93.75 (Tahir, Raees, Bilkis Mansoor and others), totalling Rs 817.95 was not deposited, he said. 'Lagaan' was one of the biggest box office hits of 2001 and had received critical acclaim and awards at international film festivals. The story revolves around a small village whose inhabitants, oppressed by high taxes, find themselves in an extraordinary situation when an arrogant British colonial officer challenges them to a game of cricket as part of a wager to avoid paying taxes.
