Rajpal Yadav’s Bollywood career may be a little off the track currently, but it looks like his off-screen life is further messed up. He had recently been sent to 10-day judicial custody by the Delhi High Court for filing a false affidavit. And now he is about to be incarcerated for six days more, after a Supreme Court ruling. Yadav will now have to serve out the remainder six days of the jail term for not paying back money to a Delhi businessman in Tihar Jail. The Supreme Court today refused to take note of his plea that he cannot repay as his film bombed at the box office.

The actor had ended up spending four days in judicial custody, from December 3, 2013 to December 6 2013. Succeeding  a division bench of the High Court had suspended the sentence on his appeal.

Supreme Court Directs Rajpal Yadav To Be Imprisoned In Tihar Jail For Six Days Over Non-Payment Of Dues:

Earlier this week, the Apex court had called out the Welcome Back actor for not paying money to Delhi based businessman. M.G. Agarwal of Murli Projects, who had filed a recovery suit against the actor and his wife over failure at repaying a loan amounting to rupees five crores. Despite having given repeated undertakings before the court, citing his conduct as ‘inexplicable’. The single judge bench that had been hearing the recovery suit, had taken exception to the allegedly forged affidavit filed by Yadav in December, 2013. The affidavit that apparently contained forged signatures of his wife, Radha Yadav, was dismissed by the panel. Things were ‘enraged’ after the comedian adduced the commercial failure of a movie as the reason behind his inability to pay back his dues.

The actor, who has been asked to surrender, immediately, will now be serving out his sentence at Tihar Jail.
