Actor Sarathkumar, wife Raadhikaa sentenced one year jail in cheque bounce case
A special court in Chennai on Wednesday sentenced one year imprisonment to Tamil actor Sarathkumar and his wife Raadhikaa in a cheque bounce case. Sarathkumar, Raadhikaa, and Malayalam producer Listin Stephen have borrowed Rs 2 crore from a film financing company in 2014 for producing two films.
The actors issued cheques for repayment but they bounced. In May 2020, the Madras High Court refused to quash criminal proceedings against them and directed the special court to complete the trial within six months. The actor couple filed a petition seeking the suspension of sentence.
