The megastar and politician have been estranged since almost a decade. After apologizing on Twitter, Singh also posted a video on Facebook which seems to have been recorded on a hospital bed.
"For the last 10 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, Amit ji and I stayed together for two months for my kidney treatment ... we grew apart afterwards", said the leader.
Diagnosed with a kidney ailment a few years ago, Singh has been undergoing treatment at a hospital in Singapore.
