Social workers make a difference to the world and not the smiling celebrity faces, Amitabh Bachchan had said this earlier as he insisted that more than celebrities, social workers should be lauded.

Amitabh Bachchan is one of the few celebrities who is using his star power for the good. From donating Rs 5 lakh each to the families of CRPF Jawans of Pulwama attack to paying off the loans of farmers in Uttar Pradesh last year, he has used his celebrity status to make a difference.
