By now, most of you would be aware of the ‘Baba Ka Dhaba’ controversy. If you aren’t, let me refresh your memory.
Back in 2020, people and celebs alike came in support of an elderly couple who owned a small eatery named ‘Baba Ka Dhaba’ in Delhi after a video of their teary plea went viral on social media. Their video was shot and shared by YouTuber Gaurav Wasan.

However, soon after getting some attention, the Dhaba owner Kanta Prasad filed a complaint against Gaurav for allegedly misappropriating funds that were raised to help him and his wife Badami Devi. This sparked a massive controversy.
