Chennai: Popular Tamil actor Vishal has levelled serious bribery allegations against the officials of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) in Mumbai through a video message on Friday.

In the video shared on his social media handle, the actor accused the officials of demanding Rs 6.5 lakh to screen and grant a U/A certificate to his movie, Mark Antony. What’s more shocking is that Vishal shared bank transcripts – as evidence – of payments made to the CBFC officials from his movie team.

On the social media handle X, Vishal wrote “#Corruption being shown on silver screen is fine. But not in real life. can’t digest. Especially in government offices. And even worse happening in #CBFC Mumbai office. Had to pay 6.5 lac 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 concerned mediator #Menaga coz too much at stake since movie released today.”

He also said that he wanted to bring this to the notice of Chief Minister of Mahrashtra and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “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…” he wrote along with the details of bank transactions.

His movie, Mark Antony was released on September 15.
