Flanked by two heroines of yesteryear Jayaprada and Dimple Kapadia former Samajwadi Party strongman Amar Singh said here on Thursday that though he doesn’t expect a call from his estranged mentor Mulayam Singh Yadav, he’s ready for another innings in politics.
Singh was here for the release of his first Malayalam movie Bombay Mithai in which Dimple has been cast against him. He expressed his plan to make a comeback in politics a day after the Samajwadi Party (SP) revoked the expulsion of his arch enemy, prominent Uttar Pradesh Muslim leader Azam Khan, on Wednesday. Quizzed about the possibility of his going back to the SP, Singh said his association with that party was a closed chapter.
“I never regret my days in politics. I don’t believe in looking back either. I am here to look forward,” he said.
Singh said he plans to re-enter politics by undertaking a 450-km march crisscrossing his home state Uttar Pradesh from Dec 1 to Dec 31 to demand trifurcation of the state for effective administration.
“My doctors have advised not to do this. But I have already decided. There is a lot left in me,” he said.
Explaining his entry into the Malayalam tinsel world, Singh, who had a kidney transplant last year, said more than commercial reasons, there was an emotional one behind his decision. “My driver, who donated his kidney to me, hails from this part of the country. When the offer came I decided immediately,” he said.
