There's no doubt that Idol Sawai Bhatt is one of the most finest contestants on Indian Idol 12. His performances have forced the judges Neha Kakkar, Himesh Reshammiya and Vishal Dadlani to get off their seats and give Sawai a standing ovation. But it seems like Sawai is going to quit the singing reality show to be with his ailing mother.
In the latest promo of Indian Idol 12, we see Sawai giving a fabulous performance in front of veteran actress Jaya Prada who will be seen as a special guest in the weekend episode. He leaves Jaya along with the judges mighty impressed with his singing skills. And while Sawai gets showered with praises, he tells the judges that he hasn't been feeling good since his mother has not been keeping well for the past few months.
While talking about his ailing mother, Sawai says that he doesn't think he could be able to go any further on the show. His confession leaves the judges in utter shock. Himesh then asks Sawai if he wants to quit the show mid-way. The question is followed by an cryptic emotion from Sawai leaving everyone thinking whether the latter has already decided to quit the show.

Meanwhile, Jaya Prada will be seen interacting with various contestants and speaking about her journey in showbiz. She will also mention her rivalries in the industry and candidly talk about the equation she shares with members of the industry.
She will recall an amusing incident involving her and the late superstar Sridevi, from back in the day when the two actresses were considered top competition to each other. The year was 1984 and the two heroines were shooting for the film Maqsad with Rajesh Khanna and Jeetendra. Realising Sridevi and Jaya Prada wouldn't speak to each other, the two lead actors devised a plan.
"It's never been that we had any personal grudge against each other but it is just that our chemistry never matched. We never had eye contact with each other as we both were in competition, be it dresses or dance. Every single time we met we were first introduced on set, and we would say namaste to each other and move ahead," Jaya recalled.
She went on to reveal, "I still remember, during the shoot of Maqsad, Jeetu ji and Rajesh Khanna ji locked us in a makeup room for an hour but we both did not even say a word and everyone gave it up on us!"
However, Jaya Prada said she does miss Sridevi, who passed away in 2018. She regrets not talking to her enough. "Today, as she is not here, I miss her a lot. I feel alone because she was a renowned competitor in Bollywood industry. Through this platform, I would also like to say that if somewhere she is listening to me, I would just say that I wish we could talk to each other," said Jaya, while speaking on the set of Indian Idol 12, which airs on Sony Entertainment Television.
