Former Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh has deeply regretted his overreaction against Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan and his family in the past.
He took to Twitter to express his feeling about the same. He tweeted, “Today is my father’s death anniversary and I got a message for the same from @SrBachchan ji. At this stage of life when I am fighting a battle of life and death I regret for my over reaction against Amit ji and family. God bless them all (sic).”

It is worth mentioning that Amar Singh was diagnosed with a kidney ailment a few years ago. Amar and Big B had a fallout a few years ago and since then, they had not been in touch.
Apart from revealing that it was Amitabh Bachchan’s decision to end their friendship, Singh also said that the Bhoothnath actor and his wife Jaya Bachchan were living separately.
During an interview back in 2017, Singh said, “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 claimed that Amitabh had warned him to not accept Jaya’s Samajwadi Party membership. Showing great generosity back then, Amitabh had said, “He is a friend, he has the right to say what he wants to say.”
In 2017, when Big B’s name cropped up in the Panama leak, Amar Singh told India Today, “There is stoic silence on part of Mr Bachchan on Panama case which will make a nayak look like khalnayak.” He had also said that he wanted Big B to come out clear of the allegations.
There also had been reported that Amar Singh had helped Big B with his finances after his production house ABCL crashed. Their friendship, however, took a huge hit when Amar was in jail and Big B took a long time 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.”
Well, now it seems like Amar Singh has got over everything and is ready to restore his friendship with the superstar.
