There was a lot of discussion in the media about the relationship between actress Jaya Prada and film producer Shrikant Nahata, although both always named this relationship only as friendship, but in the year 1986, when Jaya Prada’s career was at a peak she got married to Shrikant Nahata in June.
But Srikanth was already married and thus Jaya got the title of his second wife. This was the reason that Jaya Prada’s personal life was full of ups and downs.
Srikanth was already married
Srikant Nahata was first married to Chandra, with whom he has three children. So when he married Jaya Prada, there was a lot of controversy, as he married the actress without divorcing his first wife. It is said that even after marrying Jaya Prada, Srikanth had children from his first wife and due to this, their relationship started getting worse. Despite being married, Jaya had to live alone.
Never got wife status
Srikanth married Jaya but Jaya could never get the status of a wife despite getting married because of not divorcing the first wife. Srikkanth and Jaya do not have any children, the actress has adopted her sister’s son and now lives with him.
