Assumin you are Hindus,

As per section 13(1) of the Hindu marriage act, adultery is a ground for divorce.

So yes, you can file divorce on the gounds of adultery by using those spy call recordings.

Recording wife calls is not a crime if husband suspects wife of infidelity. 

These recordings can also be used as defence in any flase case that she files against you.

Go ahead and use the recordings you have and file a case for divorce on grounds of adultery. By doing this your wife might file a criminal case against you U/s 498A and Under the Domestic Violence acts, take anticipatory bail after you file for divorce. Recording wife calls is not a crime if husband suspects wife of infidelity.
