The Delhi High Court Tuesday remanded Bollywood actor Rajpal Yadav to 10 days police custody for concealing facts about a Rs5 crore recovery suit filed against him and his wife by a Delhi-based entrepreneur.
The judge also issued a contempt of court notice against two lawyers representing the couple.
Rajpal has appeared in films such as Hungama, Waqt: The Race Against Time, Chup Chup Ke, Garam Masala, Phir Hera Pheri, Dhol to name a few.
The entrepreneur, MG Agarwal, filed a cheating case against the actor a few years ago, in which he alleged that Yadav, who turned producer with his movie Ata Pata Laapata failed to pay back a loan of Rs. 5 crore.
Agarwal's lawyer had alleged that Yadav had given his client eight cheques, all of which bounced. He added that they signed two contracts with Yadav, which gave Murli Projects the rights to the music and overall production of the movie.
However, Agarwal has alleged that Yadav went behind his back and released the music independently and also declared the release date of the movie.
