According to a ZeeNews report, “Amar Singh has said that he got to know that ‘PM Narendra Modi is planning to propose Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s name for the next President of India’.
PM Modi to nominate Amitabh Bachchan’s name for next President of India?
Amar Singh claimed about the Amitabh Bachchan’s nomination for President’s post in an exclusive interview to Zee News’ India24x7 (Essel Group’s news channel).”
Amar Singh has gained credibility over introducing Amitabh Bachchan to Modi when he was the CM of Gujarat and recommended him for the tourist ambassador.
MP and actor Shatrughan Sinha backed Amar Singh over Amitabh Bachchan’s nomination as the next President of India.
“It will be a matter of pride if Amitabh Bachchan, a cultural icon, is made president of the country,” Sinha told reporters.
“Amitabh Bachchan has achieved many a milestone in cultural and social fields and if he becomes president, it will fetch a good name for the country,” Sinha, who has worked with the star in many successful movies, said.
In reply to a question that Bachchan has favoured his (Sinha’s) name for the president’s post, the second term BJP Lok Sabha member from Patna Sahib, said “it’s his greatness.
But, I will be happy if he graces the chair of President after Pranab Mukherjee.”
