A New Delhi court on Monday (23 April) sentenced actor-comedian Rajpal Yadav, convicted of failing to repay a Rs5 crore loan, to six months jail.

It also slapped a fine of Rs11.2 crore on him, observing that Yadav was convicted in seven cases of bounced cheques and said that he will pay a fine of Rs1.6 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 Rs10 lakh.

The court later granted the actor bail on furnishing of a personal bond of Rs50,000.

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 (2012).
