'Dabangg' actor promised Vinay's family to take care of all the medical bills of medical bills from now on.

Background dancer Vinay's father Chinu Rajput is also a retired Bollywood dancer, and is best known as the dancing partner of Salman Khan's step mother Helen in the hit number 'Piya Tu Ab To Aaja'.

On the other hand, almost 100 dancers from Salman Khan's home production film 'Jai Ho' donated their one day's pay towards Vinay's hospital bills.
