Controversial politician Amar Singh, who was once a close associate of Amitabh Bacchan, gave a shocking picture of Amitabh and wife Jaya’s relationship.
In an interview with ABP, he said, “Even before I met Amitabh Bachchan, he and Jaya Bachchan were living separately. In their two bungalows, Janak and Pratiksha. People blame me for every possible problem in the country. I am not even responsible for the rift between Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan.”
The Rajya Sabha MP, while speaking to the reporters about the Samajwadi party scenario, says that the media always believes him to be responsible for every rift whether it concerns the Samajwadi Party, the Ambanis or the Bachchans.
“Amar Singh panauti hai (brings bad omen). In Ambani family, the fight was for Dhirubhai’s money between the brothers but it was told that I am responsible for it. I am accused of making Aishwarya and Jaya Bacchan fight. For everything bad happening around, I am being held responsible. Even before I met Bachchans, Amitabh and Jaya were living in separate houses. One of them was living in Pratiksha and the other lived in Janak. When I was with them, then too they weren’t living together,” he said.
Singh had even earlier made a statement about the Bachchan family. He has accused Amitabh Bachchan’s for his decision to not stay friends with him. He had also claimed that Bachchan had warned him to not accept Jaya Bachchan in his political party considering her “inconsistent nature and habits”. Amitabh Bachchan, reportedly said that being a friend, Singh has the right to say what he wants.
Rumour has it that Amar Singh’s break-up with the Bachchans was over a Rajya Sabha seat for Jaya Bachchan. But Amar Singh says the breaking point came over a dinner when Amitabh accused him of manipulating the situation to make the Bachchan family resign from the Sahara board.
Despite being controversial, Singh probably blew things a little out of proportion this time; considering that the Bachchan’s have always prioritized keeping their personal life off the mass.
