Known for his impeccable comic timing and playing some popular character roles in Bollywood films, actor Rajpal Yadav along his wife Radha Yadav has been convicted in the recovery suit filed against them by Karkardooma court on Saturday.

The married duo and a company failed to pay back a loan of Rs 5 crore they took from a Delhi-based businessman MG Agarwal for Yadav's directorial debut 'Ata Pata Lapta' in 2010. The film was released in 2012 but the actor failed to repay the loan.

Earlier in 2013, Rajpal Yadav has spent 10 days in judicial custody for concealing important facts about the case and submitting a false affidavit. The couple's sentencing is likely to take place on April 23 when the convicted duo is likely to present their argument.

The court had ordered for the attachment of the couple's assets and Yadav's bank account along with the company owned by him. Rajpal Yadav had claimed in 2015 that he had returned Rs 1.58 crore and would pay back the remaining amount in a month's time.

He had told the court that he had got a fresh offer from a company which had agreed to take up the liability of his loan. As Yadav failed to keep his promise, the money lender dragged him to court once again and is currently awaiting a justified decision by the judicial authorities.

Rajpal Yadav is known for his performances in films like Company, Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon, Maalamaal Weekly, Bhoolbhulaiya and Hungama.
