Amitabh Bachchan is famous not only for his acting career but also the kindness and generous donation.

The Pulwama terror act attack took away 49 lives in total, which leaves Indian people in shock and despair. While everyone is sincerely praying for the hapless victims, Amitabh Bachchan turns that condolence into real action when donating Rs 5 Lakh to each family. All the information is early confirmed by his spokesperson, "Yes, Mr. Bachchan will be giving Rs 5 lakh to each of the martyr's families". The crew is also figuring out the most suitable way for proceeding, contacting several governmental sources to ensure the donation will be evenly distributed and expedited.

It's rumoured before that the number is 4o only, but the actor corrected it, saying he's contributing to 50 in total. Check out his reply on Twitter here.

Amitabh Bachchan also cancelled his previous schedule at Virat Kohli's Foundation event, where he was invited as a special guest.

Regarding Pulwama attack, it is believed to be the worst terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir since militancy erupted in 1989. On February 14, a Jaish-e-Mohammad suicide bomber threw his vehicle packed with explosives into a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) bus on the Jammu-Srinagar highway in Pulwama district, killing 40 troopers on the spot.
