This week, the news about Punjabi veteran actor Satish Kaul was doing rounds on internet and CM Punjab, Captain Amarinder Singh too had shown concern over the ailing actor's current condition.
He had directed the DC of Ludhiana to go and see Kaul in person and ask him his demands. DC Ludhiana Pardeep Aggarwal met Satish and also heard his requirements, the report of which was then sent to the CM for further action.
Today, much to the relief of the penniless veteran, Punjab Government offered financial help worth Rs. 5,00,000/- INR to Satish Kaul. The cheque was presented to the actor by SDM Ludhiana, in the presence of local media.
DPRO Ludhiana recently tweeted - "While fulfilling commitment, CM
@capt_amarinder have sent Rs 5 lac financial help to iconic artist Satish Kaul. SDM Ldh (W) Sagar Setia handed over the cheque to Mr Kaul today. Kaul thanked the @capt_amarinder and @PunjabGovtIndia for this act of kind."
The actor thanked the CM of Punjab Captain Amarinder Singh for fulfilling his commitment.
It is worth mentioning that nearly everyday, some financial aid is being offered by NGOs and artists, to the actor who had appealed for help because of his poor living conditions. Recently, an NGO had offered him a cheque worth 2 lac rupees and according to reports, Punjabi singer Feroze Khan had also met the actor to provide some monetary help.
Finally, the man seems to have some fund for living his life with ease.
