Actor Raghubir Yadav, who has starred in films like Lagaan, Peepli Live, Sui Dhaaga, and Newton, has been accused by his wife Purnima Kharga of fathering a 14-year-old son with actor Sanjay Mishra's wife.

According to the portal, Kharga has further accused that the actor is in a live-in relationship with actor Sanjay Mishra's wife Roshni Achreja and that they have a 14-year-old son.

She also said that after seven years of marriage, Raghubir fell in love with actor Nandita Das while working on a Raj Barot show.

Kharga filed for divorce earlier this week and sought interim maintenance of Rs 1 lakh and a final alimony of Rs 10 crore, reports Purnima and Raghubir are estranged. Their 30-year-old son lives with his mother.

Under the Criminal Procedure Court procedure, Kharga gets maintenance of Rs 40,000 a month but according to a Mumbai Mirror report, she has stated that the payments are never made on time.
