Jaya Prada recently appeared as a special guest on Indian Idol 12. The music artiste reality show’s jury included Himesh Reshammiya and Vishal Dadlani. While he enjoyed the performance, he also shared an anecdote of his days in Bollywood.
During the episode, host Jai Bhanushali hosted a special game for him. He presented pictures of six actors – Dharmendra, Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha and Rishi Kapoor and asked him to choose a star for every question asked.
Inme se, sabse zyada romantic scene mein kiske paseene choote (Of these people, who were the most nervous during the romantic scene?) Jay asked. After a little thought Jaya replied, Dharam Ji. He said, I have more friends than the hero. But those who work for me in rehearsals, I take it only. Because more than a hero, he is like my friend. But they will not entertain their entertainment again. Work from rehearsal room during lay. During Tech, he would do something completely different), he said. He was then asked who among the six stars was Stingy. Instead of naming Shatrughan, Jaya gave his iconic catchphrase to Khamosh.
During the episode, Jaya also revealed about Sridevi. The actor said that he could not keep an eye on the sets despite working together in several films. Rajesh Khanna and Jeetendra locked the two women in the same room.
I still remember that during the shooting of the Maqsood film, Jeetu ji and Rajesh Khanna ji had locked us both in an make-up room for an hour, where they felt that if they locked us together, then We will start a conversation with each other but both of us did not say a word and then Bollywood superstars trusted us.
The actor was seen giving a shoemi to a contestant and talking about Amitabh Bachchan’s De De Pyar De Hastep in the episode.
