Last year

This isn't the first time Amitabh has supported poor farmers

If you are impressed by Sr. Bachchan's generosity toward poor farmers, know that it's not the first such instance.

Only last year, the 76-year-old cleared debt of over a thousand farmers from Uttar Pradesh.

He further wrote that there is "another promise to be completed."

That, "to the family and wives of the brave-hearts that sacrificed their lives for the country, at (sic) Pulwama."
