Just a few days back, filmmaker Vinod Kapri, posted a photo of an auto driver driving the vehicle in Mumbai while carrying his two and a half-year-old son in his lap, on twitter.
In the post, he mentioned how Mohammad Saeed’s wife was paralyzed and bedridden and so he’s compelled to carry his son. Saeed also has a three-month daughter, who is being taken care of by a neighbor, as per a Mumbai Mirror report.

He also told the daily that he had been working round-the-clock, rushing every two hours to his wife to give her medicines and food. He also said that he’s in desperate need of money for his wife’s medical expenses. Later, Vinod also shared his bank account details and urged people to donate money and transfer it directly to his account so that he could get his bedridden wife treated.

In a heartwarming gesture, many people have come forward to help Saeed to the extent of offering the driver to babysit his children and cooking meals for the family. Many public figures like Byculla MLA Waris Pathan, director Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and TV actor Nakuul Mehta, have also reached out to him for help.
Saeed confirmed about the same in an interview to HT and said that he has been receiving many calls, from NGOs that offered help, anonymous do-gooders who wanted to give him money and doctors who promised to treat his wife free of cost.
“I received some money. I don’t know how much it is; I will go to the bank and check. I also received countless calls from people who want to donate and help. Doctors have said they will treat my wife for free,” he said.
Saeed plans to get her wife admitted to a hospital and get the necessary treatment without any further delay. “I know she will be alright. I thank the people of Mumbai for their support and blessings,” he said.
We heartily wish a speedy recovery for Saeed’s wife, Yasmin, and salute Mohammad Saeed for his exemplary courage and dedication for his family.
