      Boney Kapoor tweeted, "Some people are gone, but never forgotten. People rarely stand for others anymore. Amar Singh was one such soul who stood by me and all his friends in troubled times.

In the last few decades, he witnessed some of the major political developments from close quarters. He was known for his friendships across many spheres of life. Saddened by his demise. Condolences to his friends & family. Om Shanti."
