New Delhi: Former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh on Tuesday said that he regretted his ‘overreaction’ to megastar Amitabh Bachchan and his family members.
Amar Singh posted a video on his Facebook account, saying that he is “fighting a battle of life and death”. He also expressed regret for his behaviour towards Amitabh Bachchan and family.
“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),” Amar Singh tweeted today.
He also talked about his friendship with Amitabh Bachchan.
“For the last 10 years, I not only maintained a distance from the Bachchan family but also tried to make them feel hatred for me. However, yet again, Amitabh Bachchan has paid tribute to my father. I recall that in this place in Singapore, Amit ji and I stayed together for two months for the purpose of treatment of kidney ailment. And we grew apart afterwards.”
Today is my father’s death anniversary & I got a message for the same from Amitabh Bachchan ji. Sometimes you are aggressively reactive to a person whom you have given all your life. Similar turbulence of emotion did take place in our mutual releationship. At this stage of life when I am fighting a battle of life & death I regret for my over reaction against Amit ji & family. God bless them all.

Seeking an apology from the Bachchan family Singh said: “I feel that I expressed aggression for no reason. I am fighting a battle of life and death. I feel that since he is older to me, I should have had a warmer attitude towards him in the public. I should apologise for the bitter words I uttered.”
Amar Singh is currently undergoing medical treatment in Singapore.
