MUMBAI (Dec 6, 2015): Arch-enemies for 30 years, southern divas Sridevi and Jaya Prada have finally declared truce. Sridevi, along with her husband Boney Kapoor, attended Jaya Prada’s son Siddharth’s wedding reception in Hyderabad last week.
And it was like seeing two sisters coming together.
A prominent guest at the reception reveals. “Sri (Sridevi) and Jaya clung to each other throughout the time that Sri was there. They were genuinely emotional about their rapprochement.”
Apparently, Jaya Prada’s khaas dost Amar Singh brought about the rapprochement.
Says a family friend of Boney and Sridevi, “Jaya Pradaji flew down from Hyderabad to Mumbai and drove to Boney and Sri’s especially residence to invite them. After that, Amar Singhji also pitched in. He told Sridevi that if she wished to be friends with Amar Singhji she’d have to be friends with Jaya Pradaji. That did it.”
Sridevi flew down for the reception and spent a good two hours at the reception.
Says a source, “She looked stunning in a cream coloured Indian outfit. She was not quiet and reserved but for once, she moved around in the crowd catching up with old friends in Hyderabad.”
