Had suicidal thoughts after morphed image went viral: Jaya Prada


Actor-turned-politician Jaya Prada revealed that she has suicidal thoughts after her morphed picture with politician Amar Singh went viral on social media.

"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," Jaya Prada was quoted as saying by news agency PTI. She was speaking at the Queensline Literature Festival in Mumbai.

Jaya says she considered Amar Singh her brother and tied him rakhi. "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," she said. 

The veteran actress also alleged that Samajwadi party legislator Azam Khan attempted acid attack on her. 

"Even as a sitting MP (Member of Parliament) 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," she claimed.
