The famous political Gandhi family needs no introduction. Almost every Indian knows about them. But today we will tell you something you never knew. Did you know Indira Gandhi didn’t have 2 but 3 sons? Suprised? Yes, it is true that Indira Ji had two biological sons Sanjay Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. But there was also a person whom she considered her son and he is none other the superstar of Bollywood Amitabh Bachchan.
Gandhi family and Bachchan family were closer to each other. They shared good friendly bonds. Rajiv Gandhi and Amitabh Bachchan were very good friends. So Indira loved and adored Amitabh Bachchan as her own child. When Rajiv Gandhi was studying in England he used to write letters for her mother but sent it to Amitabh Bachchan first so that he can hand it over to his mother later. Even Rajiv Gandhi’s marriage was held at Amitabh Bachchan’s place.
It was Rajiv Gandhi who insisted Amitabh Bachchan to stand in elections and he won that! But after Bofors scam, Amitabh Bachchan resigned from Lok Sabha and pledged to never go back in the politics. this scam made Amitabh Bachchan and Rajiv Gandhi infamous among the people. This also broke their friendship.
