We’re sure that Big B could not have expected that sharing a dais with the MNS chief would get him embroiled in political controversy…

Amitabh Bachchan’s recent amity with MNS Chief Raj Thackeray has become the talk of the town. The event brought together the two biggies on a platform where the duo buried the hatchet after five long years. Raj had taken potshots at Big B and his family as he championed the cause of Marathis and the language. Bachchan’s film The Last Lear faced MNS ire after Jaya Bachchan insisted on talking in Hindi at an event, which triggered a political reaction from Raj’s party who stalled the film’s release and even stoned Big B’s posters. However, all that was history when the two men met earlier this week Raj touched Bachchan’s feet on the stage and the duo shared some warm moments and seemed to have put their past behind them.

But there was trouble to come. The event led to severe reactions from various party leaders, most recent and condemnatory being that of Bachchan’s once-close pal and ‘brother’, Amar Singh. The former Samajwadi party leader accused Bachchan Sr of double standards and even said that the actor tended to turn his back on friends and lacked spine. In an interview to a news channel Singh said, “Amitabh Bachchan ek achche kalakar hai, lekin unki reed mein haddi nahi hai. Apne bachpan ke dost Rajiv Gandhi ke kehene se Allahabad mein chunav lade, Bahuguna ko haraye, lekin maidan chodkar bhaag gaye aur wo. Gandhi parivar se bhi woh door hogaye. Bees varsho tak unke sukh mein dukh mein bina kisi lag lappet ke unka saath diya.” (Amitabh Bachchan is a great artiste, but he lacks spine. On insistence of his childhood friend Rajiv Gandhi he contested the Allahabad elections, won against Bahuguna in UP. However, he left and ran away halfway through and distanced himself from the Gandhis. I’ve stood by him through thick and thin.)

It’s not just Singh being nasty – a colleague from the SP has also questioned Bachchan‘s intent and called him a ‘traitor’. We wonder what Big B has to say now that his outing to support a filmi cause has turned political…
