Amitabh Bachchan is not just a legend for his contribution in Hindi cinema but also his inclination towards social welfare. This time around, there are reports of him saving a considerable amount for the welfare of Indian army widows as well as the upliftment of farmers.
A source revealed to a daily that the ‘102 Not Out’ actor has set aside a sum of Rs 1 crore each for the families of the army martyrs and for the farmers to repay their loans. He has also set up a team to list and locate authentic organisations, which will ensure that the money goes to the right people.
The source further added that this initiative will hopefully inspire others too, as many reports often portray the pitiful conditions faced by the families of jawans, who sacrifice their lives for India and the tragic situation of our farmers.
The veteran actor is known for his association with humanitarian activities. He has closely been supporting various social campaigns including the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan, the Beti Bachao Andolan, Polio Eradication Campaign and a mass awareness campaign about Tuberculosis.
On the work front, Big B is currently busy shooting for Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra’ which also features Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead.
