Amar Singh, who was diagnosed with a kidney ailment a few years ago, is ‘fighting a battle of life and death’, said the former politician. In his latest tweet, Singh was referring to the rift between the Bachchans and him. Amitabh and Amar were friends, till their fallout some years ago.
In addition to saying that it was Amitabh Bachchan’s decision to end their friendship, Singh also said that Amitabh and wife Jaya Bachchan were living separately.
In 2017, Singh said in an interview, “Even before I met Amitabh Bachchan, he and Jaya Bachchan were living separately. One of them was living in Pratiksha and the other lived in his other bungalow Janak. There were also speculations about a problem between Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Jaya. I am not responsible for that.”
Amar Singh had also said that it was Amitabh who had warned him to not accept Jaya Bachchan’s Samajwadi Party membership.
However, Amitabh Bachchan had shrugged it off back then with, “He is a friend, he has the right to say what he wants to say.”
In 2017, when Amitabh Bachchan’s name cropped up in the Panama leak, Amar Singh told India Today Television, “There is stoic silence on part of Mr Bachchan on Panama case which will make a nayak look like khalnayak.” Singh went on to add that as a fan, he wanted his hero, Amitabh Bachchan, to be clean.
Back in the day, reports said that Amar Singh helped Amitabh Bachchan’s finances turn around after the latter’s production house, ABCL, crashed. However, their friendship took a hit when Singh was in jail and Bachchan took ‘far too long to come’.
“When I got bail, Mr Bachchan came to see me, but I was not impressed. … Bachchan only came after I was granted bail and was in hospital. I was very cold and formal with him because he waited. He is a politically correct, suave person. Subrata Roy was also the same. I went to see him in Tihar twice. I said that I must do to people what they did to me. He took far too long to come,” Amar Singh was quoted as saying in the book India’s Most Famous, written by Sunetra Choudhury.
Singh went on to say about Bachchan, “When he came to meet me I didn’t feel like talking to him because the feelings I had for him, the friendship had gone. They had got filtered from my mind and the realisation had dawned that mostly people are weathercocks.”
Now, years later, seems like Singh is ready to let bygones be bygones.
