Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan, who is often hailed for memorable performances in films like 'Sholay', 'Zanjeer', 'Satte Pe Satta' and more, is also known for his humility and generosity. The 76-year-old, who recently paid off the debts of 2100 farmer in Bihar, yesterday, paid his respects to a domestic staffer from his house who passed away. The entire Bachchan family came out in support, and a fan took to Twitter to share a picture from the uthavani ceremony of the 40-year-old staffer.

The post read, “This visual of @SrBachchan & @juniorbachchan lifting the bier of their domestic staffer of 40 yrs who passed away, is typical of this family. Giving dignity to those who work with them is why they have a loyal staff for decades. Something's quite right with the world after all.”
