Readers may recall that we had reported about the funny man Rajpal Yadav being embroiled in a legal tangle with a Delhi-based businessman M.G. Agarwal. The latest update on the same is that the Supreme Court has now ordered Rajpal Yadav to surrender before the Tihar Jail and serve 10 days of imprisonment. Rajpal Yadav, who was found guilty of producing a false affidavit, has already served four days in jail of the stipulated ten days.
For the uninitiated, Rajpal Yadav had taken money in 2010 from M.G. Agarwal in order to make his directorial debut film Ata Pata Laapata. Rajpal Yadav, besides failing to repay the borrowed amount (despite court’s repeated undertakings), had produced false affidavit in his defense.
In a hearing that took place four days ago, Rajpal Yadav pleaded to grant him time to repay the amount, which the Supreme Court rejected.
