The video went viral on social media, following which several YouTubers, influencers, celebrities and government officials came forward to help the couple.
Prasad said he only received a cheque of Rs 2 lakh from Wasan.
In his complaint, Prasad claimed Wasan “deliberately shared his and his family’s bank details and collected a huge amount as donation”.
The YouTuber denied the allegations and said he transferred all the money to Prasad’s account. Wasan said he shared his bank details as he didn’t want people to harass the elderly couple.
He also shared three receipts of transactions all dated October 27 — two cheques of Rs 1,00,000 and Rs 2,33,000 and one receipt of bank payment of Rs 45,000, adding this was the amount collected in the three days.
Wasan also put up a bank statement on Facebook in which the total money credited in the three days is around Rs 3.5 lakh.
When Prasad was asked about the other two transactions, he said he hadn’t been able to check his account as he doesn’t carry his phone.
