In an exclusive conversation with IndiaToday.in, Ashoke Pandit, representing the Indian Film & Television Directors' Association (IFTDA), stated, “On behalf of IFTDA, we are writing a letter to Prasoon Joshi and demanding a CBI enquiry on these charges. The individuals who received the money are not employees of CBFC, so it is imperative to investigate the parties to whom the money was given.”

For the unversed, on September 28, Vishal took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to share a video detailing the issue, accompanied by a written statement. He expressed his dismay at the alleged corruption within government offices and specifically within CBFC Mumbai.

Vishal revealed that he had to make two transactions, one for Rs 3 lakhs for screening and another for Rs 3.5 lakhs for the certificate, a situation he had never encountered in his career.

“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,” read an excerpt of his statement.
