Mr. Singh and the Bachchans were close family friends till they fell apart nearly a decade ago

Former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh on Tuesday extended an olive branch to his estranged friend Amitabh Bachchan, seeking to end their feud, saying he regrets his “overreaction” to the Bollywood megastar and his family.

“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,” Mr. Singh wrote on Twitter.

Mr. Singh and the Bachchans were close family friends till they fell apart nearly a decade ago.

Diagnosed with a kidney ailment a few years ago, Mr. Singh has been undergoing treatment at a hospital in Singapore.

He also posted a video on his Facebook page in which he talked about his friendship with Mr. Bachchan and their subsequent differences. “For the last ten years, I have not only maintained a distance from the Bachchan family, but have also tried to make them hate me. However, yet again, Amitabh Bachchan has paid tribute to my father. I recall that in this place in Singapore, Amitji and I stayed together for two months for my kidney treatment ... we grew apart afterwards” he said in the video apparently shot from his hospital bed.
