Kader Khan who has written dialogues for Amitabh Bachchan in films like Satte Pa Satta, Naseeb and Muqaddar Ka Sikandar has alleged that politics changed Big B as a person and ruined their friendship.
"Amitabh ke saath jo mera risha tha...jab wo MP ban gaya...to main khush nahi tha...kyunki ye siyasat aisi hai ki insaan ko badalkar rakh deti hai. Wo waapas jab aaya to mera Amitabh Bachchan nahi tha. Mujhe bahut dukh hua. (My relationship with Amitabh got ruined after he became MP. I was not happy, because politics changes people. When he came back, he was not my Amitabh. It was very sad)"
Kader Khan also said that Amitabh discouraged him from joining politics, while he himself became MP.
"Usne mujhe bhi ye kaha ki siyasat wale tujhe agar le jaana chahte hain, ya chahenge to main tere khilaaf khada hokar bolunga ye aadmi wrong hai..isko vote mat do..harwa doonga tujhe. Mujhe to harwa dega magar khud kaise tu MP bankar aaya hai. Lekin MP banne ke baad wo change ho gaya tha. (He told me, 'if people will approach you for politics, then I would tell them that you are not the right person, I would discourage them to vote for you, I will ensure that you don't win.')"
The veteran actor adds that his relationship with Amitabh can never be the same.
