Recently released Suriya-Samantha starer failed at the box office badly. Adding insult to the injury, the film hit the headlines for wrong reasons again. CBI officials found out that the director of Central Board of Film Certification, Rakesh Kumar had accepted the cash bribe of Rs 50,000 for screening the Telugu version Sikander, and a Lenovo laptop and an Apple iPad for arranging the speedy screening of the Tamil version before the board cleared the censor formalities.

The CBI has also found the CCTV footage of Rakesh Kumar taking bribe and accepting gifts at a coffee shop in Mumbai. CBI sleuths have gathered the details of the middle men who arrange the deals between Rakesh and film producers. As we reported earlier Rakesh was already arrested on Monday but shockingly CBI has now revealed that Suriya’s latest film Sikinder took the wrong route to get the clearance certificate. CBI reportedly seized about 2kgs of gold and other properties worth Crores. CBI also found diamonds worth Rs 65 lakh from Rakesh Kumar’s wife locker in Vadodara.

The Central Bureau of Investigation has sought a list of all the films which were in pipeline to see whether makers have paid the money to investigate the scandal further. CBI officials said “Other than the bribe paid to get CC for the movies on time, we suspect that the larger chunk of the money was paid for not cutting the scenes which he raised objections to,”
