Khuswant speak

RAJEEV BHATT

IT'S always a daunting task to write about your father. And if he happens to be a well-known, hugely feted entity, the task seems even more awesome.

KHUSWANT SINGH, true to type, preferred to speak his mind at the release of a book written by his son, Rahul Singh. But the cynosure of all eyes was actor Amitabh Bachchan.

Khuswant Singh in his inimitable style turned the tables when he noted that he "had no illusions" as to why people were present in large numbers. "It's an Amitabh darshan," declared the sardar adding that he had wondered whether if there would be a crowd at all. While a mellowed Khuswant Singh went on to recall his long association with Bachchan's father, the superstar paid glowing tributes to him.
