INDIA Team Latestly|

In October 2020, a video of an old man talking about how he had no customers at his small eatery in south Delhi prompted an outpouring of support online. However, within weeks, the owner of ‘Baba ka Dhaba’ Kanta Prasad filed a case against Gaurav Wasan, the YouTuber for allegedly swindling donations. Now, in a u-turn, Prasad has apologised to the YouTube channel Swad official’s Gaurav Wasan for the misunderstanding. In a video shared by another food blogger Karan Dua online, the octogenarian, said in Hindi with his hands folded, “Gaurav Wasan was not a thief”. Last year, Wasan shot the widely shared video that showed Prasad talking about the lack of customers at his eatery in Malviya Nagar, following which he received donations from many corners. In November, Prasad told The Indian Express that he had only received a cheque of Rs 2 lakh from Wasan & claimed that people came in only to take selfies and his sales had not picked up due to the video. Later, he filed a complaint against Wasan for allegedly misappropriating money. Delhi Police had registered an FIR against Wasan. The apology video came after Prasad had to close the restaurant he opened in December last year.
