Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has surrendered his controversial farmlands in Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra. He donated the Barabanki land to the local gramsabha and informed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati about the decision.
The administration in Barabanki asked whether Bachchan could classify himself as a farmer to keep the land. He took the case to Allahabad High Court where it is pending.
The actor also wrote to Maharashtra Chief Minister and the Pune divisional commissioner about his decision to give up the land owned by him and his son Abhishek Bachchan near Pawna dam.
