Concerned over the financial problems being faced by ailing film actor A K Hangal, Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot on Saturday gave him Rs 2 lakh.

Gehlot has given the help from the welfare fund for litterateurs and journalists after he came to know that he was facing problems in getting medical treatment due to acute shortage of funds, an official said in Jaipur.

95-year-old Hangal, who carved a niche for himself as a character actor in over 125 films, is battling a financial crunch and is unable to foot his medical bills.
