Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan live separately: Amar Singh
Earlier, Amitabh had remarked, "He is a friend, he has the right to say what he wants to say."
A former close aide of Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, Politician Amar Singh has started new controversy by saying that the Senior Bachchan couple is living separately.
ABP Majha quoted the Rajya Sabha MP as saying that the media believes him to be responsible for every rift, whether it concerns the Samajwadi Party, the Ambanis or the Bachchans.
He said,"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."
Amitabh Bachchan and Amar Singh had been close friends until their fallout a few years ago. Earlier, Amitabh had remarked, "He is a friend, he has the right to say what he wants to say," when Amar Singh claimed that Big B warned him not to accept Jaya as a member of the Samajwadi Party.
Amar Singh has earlier gone on record to say that it was Amitabh's decision not to stay friends with him.
