Amitabh Bachchan donated Rs 5 lakh each to the families of CRPF jawans killed in Pulwama attack on February 14. As many as 42 CRPF jawans were killed and dozens of others injured after a car with 350 kg of explosives hit a bus carrying the personnel in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district on Thursday.

The vehicle was blown up by an improvised explosive device or IED explosion on Srinagar-Jammu highway in Awantipora area of the district, a police official said, adding that the exact number of the deceased is yet to be ascertained

After 2016 Uri terror attack, this is considered to be the deadliest terror strike in Jammu and Kashmir in nearly two decades. The incident occurred at Lethpora on the Srinagar-Anantnag highway followed by gunshots aimed at the security forces in Pulwama district on Thursday.

On the work front, Amitabh is currently busy shooting Tapsee Pannu starrer Badla. Direct by Sujoy Ghosh, Badla is touted to be a revenge thriller. Amitabh Bachchan’s powerful performance clubbed with Taapsee’s stupendous acting skills will surely leave you thrilled for the film.

The character posters of the film were released yesterday. In the posters, we saw the intense side of the two protagonists – Tapsee and Amitabh Bachchan. Ahead of the poster release, Shah Rukh Khan had tweeted out, ''Main aap se Badla lene aa raha hoon @SrBachchan saab! Taiyaar rahiyega.’’ In reply to his tweet, Big B wrote, ''Arey bhai @iamsrk, Badla lene ka time toh nikal gaya .. Ab toh sab ko Badla dene ka time hai.’’
