MUMBAI -- Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has donated his Silsila(1981) jacket to a construction worker, in a bid to extend his support for the cause of distributing clothes to needy people in winters.

The 73-year-old Piku star was in the capital yesterday to support "Call to Action: TB Free Haryana" and visited a construction site along with two boys, who appeared on his TV show, to donate clothes.

"... Driving into a deserted construction site to support these 2 boys who had come on our TV show where they told us about what they did with discarded clothes... Distributed them to the poor. I surprised them with my visit and gave away many of my personal clothes... One particular jacket that I wore in Silsila(1981)," he wrote on his blog.

The actor also posted a picture of the elated construction worker holding his cream coloured jacket.

Bachchan will next be seen in Bejoy Nambiar's Wazir, which is slated to release on January 8, 2016.
