In this film, Vishal and SJ Suryah played the lead roles. Following its release on September 15, the film became a box office success.

Vishal's recent post on X (formerly Twitter) reflects his ongoing struggle against corruption within the film industry. Following the success of his film 'Mark Antony,' Vishal recently revealed an alleged bribe demand of Rs 6.5 lakh by an individual associated with the CBFC for the Hindi release of his movie.

In an unexpected turn of events, Vishal shared his visit to the CBI office in Mumbai for an inquiry related to the CBFC case. Expressing his disbelief at the situation, he humorously noted, "I never thought I would be going to this office too in my life." This development comes after Vishal's earlier social media disclosures aimed at highlighting corruption practices within the Indian film fraternity, emphasising his commitment to transparency and accountability in the industry.

On September 28, actor Vishal turned to social media to expose the prevalent corruption within the film industry. He revealed that to release his film 'Mark Antony' in Hindi, he was required to pay a sum of Rs 6.5 lakh to an official associated with the censor board.

In a post on his official X (formerly Twitter) account, the actor disclosed that he was compelled to make a substantial payment to a middleman named Menaga to facilitate the release of his film in Hindi. The actor explained that the high stakes involved in releasing the film left him with no choice but to proceed with the payment. Furthermore, he provided specific information regarding the financial transaction.

He wrote, "#Corruption being shown on 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 @mieknathshinde @narendramodi
