Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh left for heavenly abode today. He was 64. He was undergoing treatment in a Singapore hospital since the last few months. Reports state that he was in ICU and his family was by his side during his last moments. The former Samajwadi Party leader had suffered kidney failure in 2013.

Amitabh Bachchan, who was once close to the former Samajwadi Party leader and Rajya Sabha MP, mourned his death by sharing a post on his personal blog.

Big B shared a picture on his blog and alongside that he wrote, “शोक ग्रस्त, मस्तिष्क झुका, प्रार्थनाएँ केवल रहीं, निकट प्राण, सम्बंध निकट, वो आत्मा नहीं रही! (With my head slumped in despair, I am grieving the loss. Now, there are only prayers left. We’ve lost a close bond. We’ve lost the soul that belonged to someone dear)”

For the unversed, Amar Singh and the Bachchans were very close but in 2016, their relationship turned sour when the former went public with his complaints against Jaya Bachchan.

However in February this year, Singh had taken to his Twitter handle to share that on his father’s death anniversary, Amitabh Bachchan had messaged him. He wrote, “At this stage of life when I am fighting a battle of life & death I regret for my overreaction against Amit ji & family. God bless them all.”

He also posted a video message on Facebook to the Bachchan family. In a feeble voice, he was saying, “For 10 years I have not only stayed away from the Bachchan family but also tried to create hatred against me. But in these ten years, Amit ji always wished me on my birthdays and remembered my fathers’ dad anniversary.”

May his soul rest in peace and our deepest condolences to Amar Singh’s family and friends.
