    Earlier, media reports had erroneously suggested that Gulati, fondly known as 'Mahashay', who is quite popular for appearing in commercials for the spice company, had breathed his last.

    MDH Masala factory, also known as Mahashian Di Hatti, was set up in the national capital in 1959 after Dharampal Gulati bought a plot in Kirti Nagar. Initially, he started a spice shop in a shack. Later, he opened the same at Ajmal Khan Road in Karol Bagh area.

    The MDH owner also reportedly runs Mahashay Chuni Lal Charitable Trust, which facilitates a hospital with 250 beds. Additionally, it runs a mobile hospital which reaches out to slum dwellers. Four schools are also being run by this trust, and it provides financial support to people in need.
