A court in New Delhi Monday sentenced Rajpal Yadav, convicted of failing to repay a loan of Rs 5 crore taken by his company to make a movie, to six months jail. It also slapped a fine of Rs 11.2 crore on him, observing that Yadav was convicted in seven cases of bouncing cheques and said that he will pay a fine of Rs 1.6 crore for each case.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Amit Arora, however, showed leniency to the actor’s wife Radha Yadav, asking her to pay a fine of Rs 10 lakh. The court later granted Rajpal Yadav bail on furnishing of a personal bond of Rs 50,000. Delhi-based company Murli Projects had filed a case against Yadav’s company Shree Naurang Godavari Entertainment for failing to repay a loan of Rs 5 crore which the actor took in 2010 to make his Hindi debut directional film Ata Pata Laapata.
