With her appearance on the show, the contestants are set to be seen crooning her movie songs. Meanwhile, she will be also seen sharing some blast from the past stories, as reported in Times of India, the actress has also opened up about late actress Sridevi and wished she could talk to her. Though the actresses shared screen space, Jaya Prada said they never really connected.

The senior actress revealed though they did not have grudges, their chemistry off-screen never matched unlike their on-screen bond of sisters. They saw each other as competitors even in terms of who dresses up or who dances better. She 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.”

She adds, every time they were introduced by their co-stars or director for their movies, they would greet and move on. “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,” added the actress.

Recalling one incident when Jeetendra and late actor Rajesh Khanna locked them in makeup room in order to break the ice between them, it was in vain. She said, “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.” ALSO READ: Janhvi Kapoor Opens Up About Being Compared To Late Mother Sridevi; Says She ‘Feels The Pressure More Now’
