After dropping enough hints that all is not well between him and his family friends, the Bachchans, politician Amar Singh surprised everyone last week by arriving at Laila Khan and Farhan Furniturewala’s wedding reception in Mumbai last week with Amitabh, Aishwarya and Abhishek in tow. Singh was even seen posing happily with the Bachchan family.
Last month, taking a dig at Jaya Bachchan’s remark that she missed him in the Samajwadi Party, Singh told a public gathering in Delhi that she didn’t support him when he was expelled from the party. He later posted on his blog, “For the first time I didn’t stay with Amitabh Bachchan during my Mumbai visit on April 9.”
Interestingly, soon after that post, Singh made an appearance at a public function in Pune with Amitabh. Though Singh didn’t mention the reason for his change of heart, guests present at the reception were delighted to see the new bonding. Said actress Pooja Bedi, “All the guests were in a relaxed and jovial mood.” “Everybody was cordial to each other,” said filmmaker Atul Agnihotri.
