Jaya Prada says she could never make ‘eye contact’ with Sridevi, didn’t talk despite being locked in a room together
Olden days actress Jaya Prada appeared on Indian Idol 12 and there she remembered the relationship between her and late Sridevi. The actresses acted together in numerous films such as Aakhree Raasta and Aulad, but Jaya told that they didn’t shared any off screen chemistry.
On Indian Idol, she recollected how she and Sridevi were locked in a room together by Rajesh Khanna and Jeetendra so that they utter words for each other but all their endeavors went in vain.
According to a leading daily, “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 used to greet each other and move ahead,” she said.
She added, “I still remember during the shoot of the Maqsad 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 superstars of Bollywood gave up on us. When I got the news how 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.”
In 2018, Sridevi passed away when she was attending a family wedding in Dubai. Her reason of death is unknown. He last made her guest appearance in the movie zero starred Shah Rukh Khan. Janhvi Kapoor, her daughter debuted in a film a few months later of her death.
