Amitabh Bachchan clears loans of 2,100 farmers in Bihar
MUMBAI: In a recent goodwill gesture, Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan paid off the loans of more than two thousand farmers from Bihar.
“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,” Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog.
The 76-year-old star had previously announced that there is the gift for those who suffer from the inability to pay back the loans, adding that this the time they were headed to Bihar.
Amitabh Bachchan is not new to charity as he cleared the loans of over one thousand farmers in Uttar Pradesh.
The 76-year-old actor also wrote that there is “another promise to be completed”.
“To the family and wives of the brave hearts that sacrificed their lives for the country, at Pulwama, a small gesture of financial aid … true ‘shaheeds’,” he wrote on his blog.
