MUMBAI: 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 .. around 4000 of them and the distribution through the hands of the children for their blessings is what shall be done  .."

"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.
