She was quoted by PTI saying, “Amar Singh was on dialysis and my morphed pictures were being circulated in the region. I was crying and saying I don’t want to live anymore, I want to commit suicide. I was going through that trauma and no one supported me.” Prada also added, “Only Amar Singh ji, who came out of his dialysis, stood next to me, supported me. What will you think of him? Godfather or someone else? Even if I tie rakhi to him, will people stop talking? I don’t care what people say.” Also Read - Jaya Prada Extends Support to Ravi Kishan: Jaya Bachchan Ji Is Doing Politics Over The Issue
She went on to say, “Even as a sitting MP from a party, I wasn’t spared. Azam Khan harassed me. He attempted an acid attack on me. I had no certainty if I would be alive the next day. I would tell mother while leaving the house that I wasn’t sure if I would ever return home. I emerged out of it.” Also Read - Rajya Sabha Bypoll For Seat Vacant After Amar Singh's Death on September 11
The Sharaabi-fame actor also said that she relates herself to how women empowerment has been shown in Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Jaya said, “Whatever they are showing in the film Manikarnika, I feel I was like that. A woman can also take the avatar of goddess Durga”.
