Actor Sarathkumar and actress Radikaa are a power couple who have stood the test of time and excelled in their respective careers over the years. Radikaa was the undisputed queen of Tamil serials and Sarathkumar turned into a politician after years of acting.

Recently, Radikaa left Chithi 2 to focus on politics and campaigned with her husband Sarathkumar. However, things took a drastic turn when the Special Court for MP and MLAs convicted Sarathkumar and Radikaa in a 2018 cheque bounce case and sentenced them to one year of imprisonment. The couple is also required to pay Rs 5 crores of penalty.

According to the New Indian Express, a company Radiance Media Private alleged that Magic Frames film financing company, under the partnership of Sarathkumar, Radikaa, and Listin Stephen, borrowed Rs 1.5 crore (RM 830,000), and issued two cheques.

Sarathkumar also took a loan of Rs 50 lakh (RM 278,000) from Radiance Media and issued five cheques for Rs 10 lakh each. All the checks bounced, forcing Radiance Media to file a case against the couple and their partner.

Following the sentencing, Sarathkumar has sought the suspension of the sentence saying that the issue will be solved.
