Actor-producer Vishal is known for his bold and daring statements. The actor never hesitated to speak his mind and he did it again creating a sensation.
Vishal alleges that he paid 6.5 lakh rupees as a bribe to the Mumbai censor board for the Hindi version release of his movie Mark Antony. Not just an allegation, but Vishal in a tweet revealed the exact amounts he paid to each person and also to which bank accounts he transferred the money.
Saying that he never faced this situation in his career, Vishal alleges paying the mediator Managa. Vishal tagged Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the tweet.
Vishal’s tweet reads, ‘#Corruption being shown on the silver screen is fine. But not in real life. Cant digest. Especially in govt offices. And even worse happening in #CBFC Mumbai office. Had to pay 6.5 lacs for my film #MarkAntonyHindi version. 2 transactions. 3 Lakhs for screening and 3.5 Lakhs for certificate. Never faced this situation ever in my career. Had no option but to pay the concerned mediator #Menaga coz too much at stake since movie released today. Bringing this to the notice of Hon Chief Minister of Maharashtra and my Hon PM Narendra Modiji. Doing this is not for me but for future producers. NOT HAPPENING. My hard earned money gone for corruption ??? No way. Evidence down for all to hear. Hope truth prevails as always. GB’
There were rumors earlier that the producers had to pay large amounts to the censor board for screening and certificate, but Vishal’s dashing move is now a sensation. It has to be seen how the industry reacts to this.
