Megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Monday addressed the online hate and abusive comments he has been receiving by social media users alleging him for not contributing towards COVID-19 relief.
As the nation continues to fight COVID-19, several celebrities came together to raise funds for India to help tackle the crisis. However, few big names from the industry are being targeted by the social media users, alleging them for not contributing towards the COVID-19 relief funds in India.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is one of the big names from the Bollywood industry who has been facing backlashes on his social media platform regarding the same. Feeling sad over the distasteful comments, the legendary star took to his blog site and addressed everyone that he 'believes in doing charity rather than speaking about it'.
"Yes I do charity , but have ever believed it to be done, than spoken of .. it is embarrassing , in too great a self consciousness .. of one that has ever felt shy of public presence despite the profession - one that has to find its usp in public domains is relevant today for me," he wrote.
Big B further said that the contributions that his family had made in the past few years has always been kept under the wraps, with no social media show-off saying that "only the receiver knew and that was the end .."
Concluding his message, the 'Don' star further went on to reveal the whole list of the charities he and his family had made during the past few years without disclosing the actual amount.
On Sunday, the president of Delhi Sikh Gurudwara committee- Manjinder Singh Sirsa also disclosed on his Twitter handle that Amitabh Bachchan has donated INR 2 crore and oxygen cylinders from abroad for the facility to Delhi's Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur COVID care centre, and has been constantly in touch with him to enquire about the progress of that facility.
