Bachchan family stabbed in the back of Amar Singh, who helped Amitabh in his tough financial time

Amitabh Bachchan, one of Bollywood’s best actors, had gone through a low phase in the industry. Today, Jaya Bachchan is trying to protect Bollywood’s drug mafia, but there was a time when the Bachchan family was going through a tough phase, then Bollywood mafia troubled his family a lot. It is said that hooligans were sent to Bachchan’s house for money.

There has been speculation that Bollywood actress Dimple Kapadia also harassed Amitabh Bachchan for money. when a film with Dimple Kapadia didn’t do well, the actress was unhappy that she hadn’t yet been paid for the film.

Dimple Kapadia is said to have pestered Amitabh Bachchan for payment by repeatedly calling him. Not only that but the actress sent her secretary for settling down her pending dues.

Samajwadi Party leader and veteran actor Jaya Bachchan made allegations against actor-turned-politician Ravi Kishan and Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, saying that “Jis thali mein khate hai Usme chhed karte hai. Galat baat hai”.

But Jaya Bachchan must know that raising voice against Bollywood’s drug mafia does not mean biting the hand that feeds you. And when the Bachchan family was in trouble, it was Amar Singh who helped the Bachchan family.

Amar Singh and Amitabh Bachchan have had a tumultuous relationship. Amar used to call Amitabh Bachchan his elder brother. Amar helped Amitabh when his film career was in doldrums.

Amar brought Jaya Bachchan into politics and ensured Rajya Sabha membership for her. However, their relations soured when Jaya refused to quit Samajwadi Party after the party expelled him. Amitabh Bachchan also tried patching things up a few years back by hugging Amar Singh at a party. But the miffed Amar Singh refused any sort of reconciliation between the two and said that he was too hurt with him to patch things back up.

In 2015, when he was wrapping up his political career, he spoke to a leading Indian newspaper about his soured relationship with the Bachchans. He said, “I am not feeling bad about leaving this house because whether it be the Prime Minister of India or the President, they eventually will all have to vacate government premises.” 

“I feel bad more for the people who I called family and they ditched…. Houses are lifeless… but human relations… you put everything at stake. You don’t calculate. I have learnt in life that one should be very pragmatic and practical instead of fighting battles for others.”

Many people came out in support of Ravi Kishan’s remarks about the issue of drug addiction, and criticised Rajya Sabha Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan for “doing politics over the issue”.

In a way, Ravi Kishan’s remark is about saving youth from the problem of drug trafficking, addiction. And we also need to raise our voice against the use of drugs and we need to save our youth. But Mrs Bachchan is doing politics over the issue.

We would also request Mrs Jaya Bachchan to correct us if the girl completely under influence of illicit drugs in the photo is your own Sweta Bachchan? You should make efforts to rescue your own family members from this hell.
