But not in real life. This is not digestible at all. Especially in government offices. And it is getting worse at the CBFC Mumbai office. My film Marc Antony had to pay Rs 6.5 lakh for the Hindi version. Two transactions took place, in which Rs 3 lakh was paid for screening and Rs 3.5 lakh for certification.
He today this film is releasing. So Manga was left with no choice but to pay because so much was at stake. I am bringing this matter to the attention of Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra and my Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modiji. This is not for me to do but for future creators. Is my hard earned money lost in corruption? This is not good at all. The proof for all is given below. Hope truth will prevail as always.” Along with this tweet, the actor also shared the details of the bribe taker.
