After winning accolades for paying the loans of thousands of farmers from Uttar Pradesh last year, this year Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has paid off the loans of Bihar based farmers. At a time when farmers are committing suicides owing to their inability to repay the farm loans, people like Big B are the need of the hour.
Taking to his blog, Big B wrote that the outstanding loan of 2100 picked farmers got cleared in a single payment, and his daughter and son, Swetha and Abhishek, have handed over checks to some of them in person.
"A promise made, done... the farmers from Bihar that had outstanding loans, picked 2100 of them and paid off their amount with a 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," Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog on Tumblr, as his Twitter account is to be recovered from the hackers.
At the same time, Amitabh also added that he will be soon giving financial aid to some of the wives and families of martyrs from the army. This is something like a Srimanthudu and other social message oriented movies, and this is happening for real. Hope other highly earning celebs also follow Big B in the same way.
