Amitabh Bachchan to repay loan worth ₹5.5 crore for 850 farmers


Here is some good news for more than 800 farmers in Uttar Pradesh.

Around 850 debt ridden farmers worried about repaying their loans will now get help from none other than Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan.

Amitabh Bachchan has mentioned in his blog that he will provide financial assistance to the farmers and repay their loans. Bachchan has mentioned that, "a list of over 850 farmers from Uttar Pradesh have been identified and their loans amounting to over ₹5.5 crore shall be taken care of".

This is not the first time that the senior actor has shown a big heart, earlier he had distributed cash to 44 families of martyrs from Maharashtra with the help of government agencies.

Amitabh Bachchan also mentioned that recently he had helped about 350 farmers in paying up their loans.

The senior Bachchan mentioned that he decided to help the farmers so that they wouldn’t commit suicides. This is a harsh truth that hundreds of farmers take their own life in India annually due to financially losses.

According to Amitabh Bachchan, his attempts to help the needy “has been a most satisfying experience” for him. This is really commendable and more celebrities should come forward to help the needy in the country.
