Big B helps farmers pay off their debts

The plight of farmers across India is not unknown. A number of farmers in India commit suicide as they are unable to pay paltry loans. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who has played the good Samaritan endless number of times onscreen, has been doing his bit in helping out the farmers in India.

Big B, who doesn’t like to tom-tom about his generous gestures, feels deeply for the Indian farmers and recently paid off the debts of around 115 farmers belonging to Maharashtra’s Wardha district. He reportedly donated Rs. 30 lakhs to an NGO to pay off the bank loans of these 115 farmers.

This is not the first time Big B has helped the farmers out of their misery. Eight years ago when he was shooting for Anil Sharma’s Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyon in Vishakapatnam, he heard about the plight of many farmers who were ending their lives as they couldn’t repay measly loans of Rs 10,000 – 20,000. At that time, Bachchan came forward and immediately paid off the debt of 40 such farmers.
