Superstar Amitabh Bachchan is a name who needs no introduction. He has not only made his name in the film industry but also to the houses of small farmers in India for being a saviour. Bachchan actively worked for Indian farmers who have hard time paying off their loans. Owing money to Bank of India can bring a lot of pressure and many farmers decided to take their own lives just to get out of this vicious circle.

On Tuesday Bachchan wrote in his blog that he had “taken care" of 1,398 farmers by paying of their loans. He explained how such acts are a sense of accomplishment. In his blog he also wrote how he almost paid dues worth 40 M rupees. “I shall wish of course to give these settlements, these confirmations that their loans have been paid off.” Bachchan wrote

He also arranged a train coach to bring 70 farmers to meet him in Mumbai as it will get difficult for all of them to visit him. The farmers will get the settlement documents from Bachchan with zero loans to pay back. They are expected to arrive on 26 November in Mumbai.
