At one time, the Bachchan family and Samajwadi Party member Amar Singh considered each other family but in recent times, they have maintained their distance. Singh was expelled from the Samajwadi Party in 2010 and spent some time in jail in 2011. Jaya Bachchan, who joined the political party in 2004, was re-elected to the Rajya Sabha in 2012.
Singh has now alleged that Amitabh and his wife Jaya were already living separately in the late 90s, which is when he became close to the Bachchan family.
Recently, Singh told ABP Majha, a Marathi news site, “People blame me for every possible rift in the country. When the Ambanis split, they projected me as the person who created the Mahabharat between them. It wasn’t me. People have said the same about me and the Bachchans. But even before I met Amitabh Bachchan, he and Jaya Bachchan were living separately. One of them was living in Pratiksha and the other lives in his other bungalow Janak. There were also speculations about a problem between Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Jaya. I am not responsible for that.”
The politician also insinuated that besides the rift between the husband and wife, there is also an issue between Jaya and her daughter-in-law, Aishwarya. The Bachchans, who have maintained a dignified silence on this matter, have not yet commented on Singh’s remarks.
