Actor and TV artist Raghubir Yadav has been asked to pay a monthly alimony of Rs 40,000 to his estranged wife by the Delhi court that said that the successes of his recent movies, Peepli Live and Gandhi to Hitler indicate he is doing well in commercial cinema.
“Having regard to the fact that respondent (Yadav) is a renowned actor of art movies, TV serials and theatre, and is doing well in commercial cinema after the success of his two latest hits Peepli Live and Gandhi to Hitler, I presume his average monthly income will not be less than Rs 1.25 lakh per month,”
Metropolitan Magistrate Sunena Sharma said, fixing Rs 40,000 as the sum for alimony.
His wife had told the court that she had married Yadav in Jabalpur in June 1988 but he deserted her in 1995. She added she had been living along with their son in Delhi.
