Bollywood actor Rajpal Yadav sentenced to jail over loan recovery case
December 2, 2018
Rajpal Yadav, a popular Bollywood comedian, will be in jail for three months for failing to repay a loan of Rs 5 crore. Yadav and his wife had taken the loan for his directorial debut Ata Pata Laapata in 2010. The film bombed at the box office.
Yadav was taken to court by Murli projects, a company based in New Delhi. The actor will serve his sentence at Tihar jail.
His fans took to social media to express their disappointment over the sentence.
Sad to see a man who's literally made me cry, by making me laugh like hell, going behind bars for 3 months, for not being in the situation to repay a loan of 5 crore which he'd taken for his dream project, while a star killing 7 under wheels & a black buck roams free! - Sujith Kolap, Twitter User.
Yadav had spent over four days in jail in 2012 for the same case after Delhi High Court suspended a sentence on his appeal.
"Someone is free even after killing d people on d footpath and poor #rajpalyadav now has to go to jail for a loan default! Justice? My foot!!", tweeted Shahil.
Rajpal has acted in movies like Bhoothnath, Hera Pheri, Bhool Bhulaiyya and Hungama which were super hits at the box office.
