Mumbai: Released from Tihar Jail in February end after serving his jail term, actor Rajpal Yadav is ready to put his past behind him. The actor was sentenced to three months in prison in November 2018 by the Delhi High Court for non-repayment of a loan.

The film was released in 2012 and failed to make box office cash register ring. Now, the actor is wrapping up the shoot for Jaako Raakhe Saaiyan and revealed that he is in talks with David Dhawan and Priyadarshan. In an interview with IANS, the 48-year-old star shared his positive Tihar Jail experience.
“There was a lot of discipline that we all had to follow. But I always tried to engage my mind with something or the other. I used to interact with the fellow prisoners during recreation activity; I used to conduct an interactive session that we named ‘Rajpal Ki Paathshala’," he said.
And, it turns out that the prison stint gave him a lot of time to introspect too. He shared, “I gave motivational speeches. Did exercise in the morning. We had access to the library and I used to sit there and read.”
With new projects in the offing, the actor is all set to make a comeback. He is ready to start shooting for Time To Dance alongside Sooraj Pancholi and Isabelle Kaif and expresses thanks 'to the producers and directors who waited for me to come back.'
The actor says, "I think I trusted a few people who later misused my trust. But I do not want to comment much on that. I want to move forward as I know life has a lot to offer," adding that he can't wait to return to a film set.
