The celebrated actor also met some of the farmers personally to hand over the bank letters to them.
“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.
In his blog post, he shared some photographs with his daughter Shweta. He did the one time settlement and invited around 70 farmers to Mumbai by blocking the whole of one compartment in the train to personally give away the bank letters to them.
