Finally Big B put an end to speculation over the amount of contribution he made for COVID-19 relief. Slamming the trolls, Amitabh Bachchan shared the details of his COVID-19 relief support. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan expressed on his personal blog and revealed the major details. He also made clear that he has already crossed over the Rs 2 crore figure that was being circulated on social media.
The megastar wrote that he has contributed around Rs 15 crore and he won’t step back from doing more, even if it means breaking down in his own funds. He also encouraged his fans and others to move forward and help each other in this crucial time so that India can win this battle against the life-threatening COVID-19.
Amitabh Bachchan was trolled for the last couple of days along with other Bollywood celebrities for about not mentioning his relief towards the pandemic. He said he does not believe in announcing in the public about the charity that he does but he felt compelled to do so this time to end the “everyday abuse and the filth of distasteful comments”.
He also revealed that he is also helping people in the industry who are facing a challenge due to COVID-19 times. “And there are those colleagues and friends that have run into difficult times financially … they too have been given funds to tide over some of the trouble they find themselves in. This is not trumpeting my ‘wares’ … if at all it can be a motivation for many others to come forward and donate, the amount of misery that one hears and sees could be greatly reduced,” he wrote.
