Amitabh Bachchan likes to keep it graceful on social media, especially when he interacts with followers whom he calls his EF (extended family). Even when he responds to haters or doubters, he does so with that grace intact.

On Wednesday, the actor shared a photo from a recording studio. He posted the photo with a caption stating, “.. the best place to be at midnight .. after finishing shoot for the day at KBC - a recording studio in front of a mike ..”

A user commented on the post, “Kerala ko donation diya?” While Big B may not comment usually, the actor made an exception this time. “Ji diya.. Pata chal gaya aapko.. Aapne diya kya?” Amitabh wrote. The actor and his family has donated Rs 51 lakh to the relief organisations working for the Kerala flood victims. The 75-year-old actor also gave away some of his personal belongings to the flood-ravaged state.

Amitabh contributed to the relief effort being coordinated by Oscar winner Resul Pookutty for Kerala Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund. He had earlier thanked Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan for their gesture. He tweeted, “Benevolence and kindness in this grave hour of need has no word for thanking, but for sincere gratitude, love and affection. @SrBachchan and @juniorbachchan the people of Kerala consider you one of their own, and your hand of help is deeply appreciated.Respect.”

A source close to Pookutty informed ANI that Amitabh has also sent six cartons of his personal clothing, including around 80 jackets, 25 pants, 20 shirts, and scarves. The actor has also donated around 40 shoes.
