This will make you adulate Big B more than ever!
We have often seen celebrities extending their helping hand towards noble needs. Many Indian actors and actresses are popular for their generosity and benevolence and Mahanayak of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan is one of the most charitable celebrities of India. Big B is a Megastar and that too for a reason, a quality that makes him a real big star is his role in philanthropy.
Amitabh Bachchan has yet again proved this by paying loans of 2100 farmers of Bihar. In his blog post, he wrote, “ A promise made, done... The farmers from Bihar that had outstanding loans, picked 2100 of them and paid off their amount with an OTS ( One Time Settlement ) with the bank... Called some of them over to Janak and personally gave it to them at the hands of Shweta and Abhishek “.
People are applauding him for this noble deed and this is not the first time when Big B has shown such kind gesture. Last year, he had cleared the loans of over a thousand farmers of Uttar Pradesh. Prior to that Bachchan had also paid off the loans of over 350 farmers of Maharashtra. The actor is not going to stop here as he also wrote that there is “another promise to be completed”, his next aim is to provide financial aid to the families of the Martyrs of Pulwama attack.
Very few realise that with success comes not only money but also a responsibility towards society. People forget that by helping the needy and the poor will only add value to their hard earned money. But it’s gratifying to see that the big stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and many others are setting great examples of generosity and are inspiring others to share their earnings with the less-privileged ones. Kudos to all those people who are using their power and money in bringing a positive shift in society.
