"And then the meeting with the farmers from UP and the giving of the OTS certificates to a select few from the 1398.
"Let the Laxmi of the house, the daughter give them that. Laxmi the Goddess of wealth. Shweta, the daughter, the Laxmi of the house," he wrote.
He shared his photographs with Shweta on the blogpost.
Amitabh did the OTS and invited 70 farmers to Mumbai by blocking an entire train compartment for them to personally give away the bank letters.
Earlier in 2017, the "Piku" star helped over 350 farmers by paying off their debts and helping the families of 44 Maharashtra soldier who died in combat.
He had then handed over the amount to the farmers and the soldier's families along with his wife Jaya.
