Bollywood comedian Rajpal Yadav is in the legal soup. The actor who was recently shooting in the Katra area of UP’s Pragyaraj has run into trouble. Allegedly, Rajpal ‘accidentally’ hit a student with his scooter during the shoot and that led to the whole fiasco.

The student identified as Balaji filed a complaint against the actor at Colonelganj Police Station and sought justice.
According to the student’s statement, Rajpal was riding a scooter and was not riding it properly. Balaji further accused the actor of misbehaving and arguing with him. The grieving student added that members of the film shooters also threatened to kill him. Speculation suggests that the ongoing shooting for Kathal was from Netflix.
Several media reports quoted the Station House Officer of Colonelganj Police Station, Ram Mohan Rai as saying, “The scooter the actor was riding was an old one. The actor lost control of the wheel and hit the student after the clutch wire broke. The student suffered no visible injuries. However, further investigations are being conducted and further action will be taken.”
According to Bollywood Hungama, “The shooting took place near a certain Laxmi Talkies crosswalk in the area and it resulted in a huge crowd gathering to get a glimpse of the film’s shooting. Later, the shooting was moved to another area where Rajpal Yadav was expected to film the scene of him on a scooter.
For the inexperienced, Rajpal Yadav’s shooting squad also filed a complaint against the disruptors.
Reportedly, Rajpal’s team said in their complaint that some people interfered with the shooting, including the alleged victim, namely the student. They added that all attempts to stop the shooting were made despite required permissions from the district administration. Heard all sides of the story, investigation is ongoing.
Rajpal, who recently played a lead role in Rubina Dilaik actor Ardh, said he is eyeing all sorts of roles.
Yadav told Filmfare, “Every actor dreams of playing the lead role, but I have a bad habit of always leaving doors open for roles. If the roll is 3-4 scenes I consider it a 20-20 cricket match where I have 3 overs to play. I think this is the IPL of entertainment, and if I get 3-4 overs here where I do well, it’s all good. So I never adhered to these boundaries that say ‘lead hai toh leid hi karunga’. If there’s a character where I get the chance that gives me the hook, I grab it.
