Amar Singh

Samajwadi party leader Amar Singh’s kidney transplant in Singapore went off successfully on July 10. While Amar Singh’s closest friends from the industry, Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt, couldn’t make it to Singapore their respective wives more than made up for their husbands’ absence. Bachchan had to cancel his trip at the last minute due to a health scare and Sanjay was denied a visa.

Jaya was with Amar Singh when he went in for the surgery and Sanjay’s wife, Maanyata, joined her later. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan too put her shooting schedule for Shankar’s Robot on hold to be with Bachchan’s closest family friend in his hour of crisis. Jaya Prada also dropped in to wish her mentor good luck.

One of the star wives said, “It had become an all-girls club in Singapore with Jaya Prada also dropping in to meet him (Singh). There was nothing to do there except be present by his side and enquire about his progress. One couldn’t go shopping or sightseeing at a time like this. It was a grim situation but yes, we wives bonded well.”

Although Jaya Prada was seen at the hospital for only a brief visit, Jaya Bachchan, Maanyata and Aishwarya remained by Singh’s side till he was declared out of danger. While Aishwarya divided her time between her mother-in-law and husband, Abhishek, who represented his father in Singapore, Mrs Bachchan and Mrs Dutt didn’t move from the special room in the hospital where they had ample privacy.

For Jaya Bachchan, the situation was doubly demanding since Amitabh had a health scare just when they were scheduled to leave for Singapore together. She eventually went without her husband. Putting up a brave front, she said, “There’s nothing to worry about. My husband is fine. It’s just his intestine that keeps twisting because of all the health problems he has gone through.” She said that Amar Singh is recuperating well and will be back on his feet soon.

Maanyata returned to Mumbai yesterday morning and the Bachchan family is also expected to be back shortly.
