On November 30, 2018, The Delhi High Court had sent Bollywood actor-comedian Rajpal Yadav to jail for three months for failing to repay a loan of Rs 5 crore taken by his company to make a movie. Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw ordered that Yadav should be taken into custody and kept in the Tihar Jail. Delhi-based company Murli Projects had filed a civil case against Yadav's company Shree Naurang Godavari Entertainment for failing to repay Rs 5 crore which the actor took in 2010 to make his Hindi debut directional film Ata Pata Laapata.
Now, the actor has opened up about his time in the jail and said that he has never defended himself in the last decade-and-a-half and does not want to ‘carry the burden of the past’. Talking about his imprisonment, Rajpal told a digital news website, “For the past 15 years, I have not said anything in my defense. I don’t think negatively. I don’t know who is negative or positive. But I know my work and where there is work, there is karma. I have done my karma from my childhood and I don’t know what is negative or positive. I don’t want to carry the burden of the past with me.”
“Let people do what they have to do. If my work is liked, it will go ahead. It is all about life. Like every day, the sun’s rays are different, so is Rajpal Yadav. He is known for his creativity and has got the love of the audience. I have got a lot of love and I am very happy,” he added.
The actor has currently a busy lineup of projects with Hungama 2, Bole Chudiyan and Bhool Bhulaiyya 2 in his kitty.
