Will Big B miss IIFA too

Amitabh Bachchan is the brand ambassador for IIFA and the Bachchan family has been very prominent at the annual IIFA Weekend, which includes the awards ceremony.

However, Big B’s presence at this year’s event seems doubtful as his close friend, Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, is very ill.

Amar Singh’s health problem began with a small intestinal disorder but has now worsened and damaged his kidneys. He was rushed to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai on Tuesday (June 9, 2009) afternoon in a serious condition.

He was then flown down to Singapore late on Tuesday night for an emergency operation.

The entire Bachchan family was with him at the Ambani hospital.

Several Bollywood stars and politicians also visited the hospital.

Sanjay Dutt, too, flew down from Goa, where he is shooting for “All The Best”.

While Abhi and Ash left for the Macau on Tuesday night to attend the IIFA event, which will be held from June 11 to 13, Amitabh and Jaya’s presence is doubtful.

Till now, they have chosen to be by Amar Singh’s side during his difficult time.

However, being the thorough professional that he is, we expect Big B to arrive in Macau at the last minute to honour his IIFA commitment.
