Chief minister BS Yeddyurappa is a fan of Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Paa—a film about a boy with the rare genetic condition Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS).
After seeing the film with Big B on Saturday, Yeddyurappa ordered a state-wide survey to identify those affected with progeria.
“After the survey, we will provide financial assistance to those affected by progeria. Paa throws light on the condition. Therefore, I have directed all the ministers and senior officials to watch the film,” said Yeddyurappa.
