After this There are a lot of twists in this case and while Gaurav Wasan has some fault, he may have saved this entire ordinance by directly sharing the information of Baba (Kanta Prasad) financial institution. However the police case on Gaurav Wasan introduced all the adverse press on Baba. Individuals stopped going to their dhabas and noticed an angle change.
Some of the people siad, Baba bought a new house. Where we discovered an anomaly, Baba has not bought a new house, he rents elsewhere while he renovates his old residence.
When the primary video went viral, people across India assisted him. It is heartening to see that so many people were ready to help the poor couple. Many people come to the store to eat for a time to disappear, to take selfies and to prove their generosity with photos on social media. When the social media craze subsided, the couple returned in a smaller amount than their earlier income.
