A jacket worn by Amitabh Bachchan in his iconic 1981 film Silsila has been donated by the megastar to the needy to battle the chilly winter.
The jacket is among the other personal clothes that Big B has parted with for a noble cause. He has given them away to NGO Clothes Box Foundation, which makes use of people's old clothes for the poor.
"Giving to the needy my personal clothes... supporting the Clothes Box initiative by these two gems from Delhi," Amitabh tweeted on Friday night, with a photograph featuring two men.
