Delhi’s Karkardooma Court on Friday convicted Bollywood actor Rajpal Yadav, his wife Radha and a company in a recovery suit filed against them for failing to repay a loan of Rs 5 crore which they had taken in 2010 for his directorial debut.
Pronouncing the actor and his wife guilty, the Karkardooma Court has reportedly set April 23 as the date for their sentencing.
The case dates back to 2010 when Rajpal Yadav and his wife had taken a loan of Rs 5 crore from a Delhi-based entrepreneur, MG Agarwal, who is the owner of Murli Projects, for his directorial debut ‘Ata Pata Laapata’ (2012). The businessman filed a recovery suit against Yadav and his wife after they failed to repay him the amount.
Rajpal Yadav has studied acting in the Bhartendu Natya Academy in Lucknow from 1992 to 1994 and after finishing the course, he went to National School of Drama in Delhi. In 1997, he moved to Mumbai.
After years of struggle and hard work, Yadav came to be known as one of the finest character actors in Bollywood. Besides displaying his comic timing and talent in films like ‘Chup Chup Ke’, ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ and ‘Phir Hera Pheri’, he has also acted in film such as ‘Jungle’, where he had a negative part or in ‘Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon’ where people saw him as a lover. In ‘Main, Meri Patni Aur Woh’, he played an insecure husband.
