And so the actor has fulfilled his promise by giving money to the Bala’s family. A source close to Bala told, “Full marks to Ajay and his co-producers Kumar Mangat and Babloo Pachisia, who helped in this cause. Machinder’s wife and mother received Rs 7 lakh each. It is believed many people, including many actors from the film, pooled in.”
Prem Singh Thakur, Vice Chairman of the Allied Mazdoor Union, confirmed the news. He represented Machinder’s wife in the negotiations with the Son of Sardar producers.
