News that there might be a thaw in the relations between the Bachchans and the Gandhis were refuted by Amitabh Bachchan.
“I am not aware of it,” said the star at a press conference for his new film
The Last Lear
The Bachchan family has been firefighting controversy after Jaya Bachchan’s ‘I’m from UP’ remarks in Maharashtra for the last few days.
News of Sonia Gandhi stepping in to help had led to speculation that the Bachchans and the Gandhis may have become friendly again. But when questioned about it, Amitabh Bachchan surprised everybody with his reply. “
Mujhe is baare mein koi jaankari nahi hai, isliye main koi tippani nahi dena chahunga
,” he said. (I have no news about this matter and so would not want to comment on it.)
And putting an end to any doubts about his stand on the matter, he said, “
Mujhe rajneeti mein koi dilchaspi nahi hai, na aainda hogi
…” (I am not interested in politics and never will be).
