New Delhi: Veteran Bollywood actress Jaya Prada recently made a special appearance in an episode of the singing reality TV show ‘Indian Idol 12’ where she revealed amusing facts about her co-stars Dharmendra and Shatrughan Sinha.
The actress turned politician appeared on the panel of the Indian Idol 12 judges alongside singer Himesh Reshammiya and composer Vishal Dadlani. While she was on the show, the host Aditya Narayan asked her certain fun questions and tried to get her to spill the beans about her co-stars.
When asked about who would get the most nervous during romantic scenes, Jaya took up veteran actor Dharmendra’s name. She said, “Dharam Ji, hero se zyada mujhe friend nazar aate hai. Lekin jo rehearsal mein karte hai, woh take mein nahi hota, kyuki take mein kuch aur karte he.”
Consequently, when Narayan asked her who was the biggest miser among her co-stars, Jaya imitated veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha’s catchphrase – “Khamosh” as her answer. She indirectly hinted that the ‘Loha’ actor was the most reluctant to spend his money.
