Politics is less leadership and more histrionics and former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh surely qualifies in this definition. Amar Singh took to Facebook and Twitter to release a video where he is seen expressing his ‘regret’ for his ‘overreaction’ and behaviour towards Amitabh Bachchan and his family. Singh appeared feeble and frail and facing imminent death, as claimed by himself, he spoke about how Big B sent a message to him on his father’s death anniversary.
Uncomfortably lying on a couch, Singh said in the video, “If not anything, he (Amitabh Bachchan) is elder to me. I should have been sober to him. I realise, I must express regret for the harsh words I used (against them). In my mind, more than hatred, I had disappointment towards his behaviour. But it seems, he never had any disappointment, nor bitterness in him (against me). He has some feelings. That's why he has conveyed his tributes on my father's death anniversary. Acknowledging that I would urge the God to give justice to all according to their karma. We should leave it to the almighty.”
He also took to Twitter to express his regret over talking ill about the veteran actor and his family. Singh was diagnosed with kidney ailment a few years ago and is currently battling that. He had previously stated that Amitabh and Jaya are living separately and that there were problems between Jaya and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Today is my father’s death anniversary & I got a message for the same from @SrBachchan ji. 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.

Singh’s friendship with Big B had gone sour when the latter did not come to see him when he was in jail. Singh claimed that he took ‘far too long to come’ and by the time he did he felt cold. He had taken a dig at Amitabh and called him a ‘weathercock’ but his latest tweet and video suggests that he is finally ready to let bygones be bygones.
