A day after former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh claimed that Amitabh Bachchan had 'warned' him against admitting his wife Jaya into his party, the megastar on Wednesday said the politician has every right to say what he wants.

Singh, who was once very close to the 'Piku' star and his family, claimed at an event in Mumbai on Wednesday that Bachchan had once warned him not to accept Jaya into his party considering her 'inconsistent nature and habits'.

"But I didn't adhere to his noble advice," Singh had reportedly said replying to a query at the launch event of Hindi film 'Bhouri'.

Singh was reportedly asked to comment on the Panama Papers controversy in which Bachchan's name has cropped up. But he instead went on to narrate how things went downhill between him and the Bachchans.

When asked about Singh's remarks, the 73-year-old actor told reporters here today, "He is a friend, he has the right to say what he wants to say."

The former Samajwadi Party leader was very close to the Bachchan family for many years before their fall out. Bachchan will be next seen in 'Te3n'.
