Mr. Bachchan (……) is not only an excellent actor (collocation) who takes his roles seriously, but also (cohesion) an extraordinary human who works for the upliftment of poor citizens of India (………). He is a social worker and donates regularly (collocation) to charities working for making the society equitable (colloaction), socially as well as economically, for every one.
