Indian Idol 12: Jaya Prada speaks about her arch rivalry with late Sridevi

Indian Idol 12 will soon see Jaya Prada grace the stage where she will be left spellbound with some amazing performances. Host Jay Bhanushali along with the show judges Vishal Dadlani and Himesh Reshammiya will be seen super delighted to welcome Jaya Prada on Indian Idol 12. During the episode, Jaya Prada will be seen sharing some interesting anecdotes from her life journey and her stardom in the industry. She will be seen talking candidly with Himesh Reshammiya about how her and Sridevi’s bond during the time was not great. She opened up on how things between her and Sridevi never got friendly.

Recalling about Sridevi and her bond, Jaya Prada said, “I am the luckiest person I can say, and it’s never been that we had any personal grudge against each other but it is just that our chemistry never matched. We never had eye contact with each other even after being Perfect sisters on screen. We both competed with each other be it dresses or dance. Every single time we met, the directors or the actors used to introduce us on set and to which, we use greet each other and move ahead.” She further added, “I still remember during the shoot of the Maksat film, Jeetu Ji and Rajesh Khanna Ji locked both of us in one makeup room for an hour where they both felt that if they lock us together, we will start a conversation with each other but, we both did not even say a word and then the Super Stars of Bollywood gave it upon us.”


Jaya Prada also opened up on how the news of Sridevi passing away left her upset and she wished they could have spoken once. “When I got the news as she has left us in between, it still upsets me and I miss her a lot because I feel alone and through this platform, I would also like to say that if somewhere she is listening to me I would just say that I wish we could talk to each other,” she shared.

For those unaware, Sridevi passed away in February 2018 in a hotel in Dubai.
