The fierce rivalry was much talked about, and is still talked about even to this day. Last year Jaya was quoted in an interview saying "Sridevi was jealous of me and considered me her rival. We would be at the same shoot, but sitting in two different corners. So much so, that in a film with Jeetendra, in which she was to be shown as dying on my lap, her mother told the director, “My daughter will not die in Jaya’s lap. You please change the scene.”

From her latest releases the only one that comes to mind is 'Khakhee' (2004) where she starred once again opposite Amitabh Bachchan. She has been working on a film with Shilpa Shetty for quite some time now. It is a multi-lingual film which was due to be released in 2010, so keep your eyes peeled.
Jaya's UBDs: Sridevi, Padmini, Madhuri Dixit, Anu Agarwal, Aishwarya Rai, Shilpa Shetty, Tabu.
