Big B pays off loans of 2,100 farmers from Bihar


Mumbai, Jun 12 (IANS): Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has cleared the loans of over 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 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 wrote on his blog.

The cine icon had previously written that "there is the gift of those that suffer from the inability to pay back the loans. They be now from the state of Bihar".

This is not the first time Amitabh has helped farmers.

Last year, the "Piku" star had 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.

    What surprises me is ... Maharashtra - the State where Mr. Bachan is living - is completely devastated with Farmer suicides due to un-payable loans. He could have helped some desperate souls in Maharashtra.

    May be he is doing is indirectly, nevertheless - a very good gesture. He is a stalwart and can contribute immensely to good causes like swatch Abiyan .... Mumbai is still a litter box in many places. Even if Mr. Bachan visits a few sites like Jogeshwari, Chembur, Sion, Kurla once in a while and speak to the people around, the change will come.

    Some people adore him like God. Especially, in KBC reality show.
    He has won peoples heart and love in his filmy career. A human being specially created with lots of talent and entertaining good deeds.
    Capable of leading the country as an intelligent & true leader if he considers to have an active role and ambitions in politics. Let us hope so.

    He genuinely deserves peoples good wishes and prayers for such an philanthropic act.
    Some multi- Millionaires add to the fortune and remain at distance from helping the deprived lot.
    Many celebrities from our film industry carry out such great jobs.
