Jaya was dressed in a white suit, and Shweta looked casual in a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt.
With films like "Guddi", "Abhimaan" and "Mili", the actress became synonymous with roles that exuded innocence. Then there were titles like "Silsila", "Chupke Chupke", "Koshish" and "Sholay", where she displayed her range as an actor.
The actress is also a star campaigner of the Samajwadi Party for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
